No change to the leaders again with the top three unchanged and Savage Road keeping Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo at #1 for a fourth consecutive week.
The only new arrival to a top 10 spot is DJ Khaled featuring Drake with Popstar at #10. It marks the continuation of a collaboration between the two. Along with Greece, new this week at #35, both tracks are from Khaled’s just announced next studio album Khaled Khaled.
The only other arrival on the single chart this week is Love Songs from Daryl Braithwaite at #43. The song was written by Grammy nominated Australian songwriter Michael Fitkin and LA-based writers Rozzi Crane and Charlie Synder. The tune was en route to P!nk when Braithwaite got his hands on it, performing it live initially to good reaction, before P!nk’s manager, and former Sherbert manager, Roger Davies gave Braithwaite the OK to take it to the studio. Believe it or not, this is Braithwaite’s first time in the singles chart in 27 years when The World as It Is peaked at #35 in November 1993. (Horses charted in 1991 hitting #1.)
Amy Shark continues to inch up the chart with Everybody Rise up four spots to #34 in its third week in the top 50.
Rarely does an album hit top spot after debuting lower down the chart. That happened this week when the posthumous Juice WRLD album jumped from #3 to #1 in its second week on the chart. ARIA noted it becomes the second posthumous album to top the chart in three weeks, following the #1 debut of Pop Smoke’s Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon which sits at #3 this week.
Last week’s chart champs Lime Cordiale slipped from #1 to #5 while the DMA’S went from #2 to #8.
Two new arrivals found a home in the top 10:
#2 The Chicks with Gaslighter. The country rock group’s eighth is their second #2 album. The trio were prolific in their early days, releasing six studio albums in their first 12 years together. Since then just two – in 2006 and 2020 – as they took time out to raise families and take a break from music at different times. The band have courted controversy in the past with outspoken stances about causes they feel strongly about. Just last month they changed their name from The Dixie Chicks to show solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.
#9 BTS with Map of the Soul: 7 – The Journey. The K-pop act topped the chart earlier this year with Map of The Soul: 7.
Just two other albums landed in the top 50 on debut:
#23 Oliver Tree with Ugly is Beautiful. The multi-talented American indie rapper/musician/comedian/filmmaker makes his ARIA Chart debut just as he announces his retirement from music!
#25 Ellie Goulding with Brightest Blue. The British singer/songwriter returns with her fourth album and her first in five years. Goulding most recently charted with Delirium which peaked at #3 in 2015.
