Justin Bieber has scored his second chart-topper Down Under while Adele’s 25 (XL/Remote Control) secures a third week atop Australia's albums chart. 

Bieber’s “Love Yourself” (Def Jam/Universal) climbs 2-1 in its fourth week on the ARIA Singles Chart and earns platinum certification (70,000 units) in the process. The Canadian pop star landed his first No. 1 in September when “What Do You Mean” started a four-week stint at the summit. He's the first artist to land two chart-topping singles in Australia this year.

Adele Matches Her Longest Hot 100 Reign With Seventh Week at No. 1 for 'Hello'

Bieber's "Love Yourself" nudges out Adele’s triple platinum “Hello,” which held the top spot for six weeks (one short of equaling her all-time best). Rounding out the top five is Bieber's "Sorry," which stays put at No. 3; Shawn Mendes’ "Stitches" (Def Jam), which holds at No. 4 and Duke Dumont's "Ocean Drive" (Virgin/EMI), which is unchanged at No. 5. Among the biggest gainers this week is Coldplay’s “Adventure Of A Lifetime” (Parlophone/Warner) which rises 36-20 to give the British group its 11th top 20 single in Australia.

Bieber also manages a rare trifecta on ARIA’s Streaming Tracks Chart with “Love Yourself” (No. 1), “Sorry”
(No. 2) and “What Do You Mean” (No. 3).

On the ARIA Albums Chart, meanwhile, Adele’s 25 holds off Coldplay’s new album A Head Full Of Dreams, which bows at No. 2. Adele’s third album is now six-times platinum certified (420,000 units plus) and her previous albums continue to make an impression on the chart: 21 and 19 are at No. 15 and No. 26, respectively.

The top 5 is filled by Michael Buble’s Christmas (Reprise/Warner), which stays at No. 3; Bieber’s Purpose, which drops 2-4 and Taylor Swift’s 1989 (Big Machine/Universal), which remains at No. 5.  

Just outside the top five is Troye Sivan's debut album Blue Neighbourhood (EMI), which starts at No. 6. The homegrown singer and producer led the national albums survey in September with the EP Wild, which features the song of the same name (it’s also the lead track on Blue Neighbourhood).
