Olivia Rodrigo Scores Another Chart Double In Australia

Olivia Rodrigo continues to have her way on Australia’s charts.

The teenage U.S. phenomenon does the ARIA Chart double for a second consecutive week as Sour (Interscope/Universal) holds at No. 1 on the albums chart and “Good 4 U” continues its reign over the singles survey.

Rodrigo’s domination is near complete, as the singer-songwriter sees ten tracks impact this week’s ARIA Top 50. Four of those are in the Top Ten, including “Traitor” which lifts 7-5, a new peak.

Staying with the ARIA Albums Chart, Australian Idol alum Shannon Noll bags his seventh Top Ten with Raw (Red Dog Recordings), an acoustic compilation of covers and new songs. It’s new at No. 3.

Brisbane pop duo The Veronicas earn a fourth Top 10 with Godzilla (Sony Music), their first album in seven years. It’s new at No. 7. The Origliasso sisters have hit No. 2 on three separate occasions, with The Secret Life Of... (April 2006), Hook Me Up (November 2007) and The Veronicas (December 2014). But they’ve never had a No. 1. They’ll hope to change that when they release another new album, Human, on June 25.

Also new to the chart this week is Allday’s Drinking with My Smoking Friends (Independent), at No. 13. It’s the Adelaide singer-songwriter/rapper’s fourth studio and the followup to Starry Night Over the Phone, which reached No. 7 in July 2019.

Finally, Juice WRLD’s debut album Goodbye & Good Riddance (Interscope/Universal) hits a new peak following a reissue. Released in May 2018, the LP made its chart debut at No. 39 in December 2019, following his death at 21. The late rapper’s set reenters the chart at No. 17.
