British rappers Russ Millions and Tion Wayne hold #1 on the ARIA singles chart for a second week with Body. Last week, the track notched up its second week at the top of the UK charts and hit #1 for the first time in New Zealand.
The top rating Australian artist this week is The Kid Laroi in #4 with the new remix of his song Without You featuring Miley Cyrus.
Ahead of the release of her debut album, Sour, Olivia Rodrigo scores a third top ten single with Good 4 U at #2. The follow-up to Déjà Vu becomes the American artist’s second-highest chart peak after Drivers License topped the chart in January.

Delta Goodrem takes out her fifth #1 on the ARIA albums chart with Bridge Over Troubled Dreams. The singer-songwriter’s seventh studio album comes six months on from her festive release Only Santa Knows and features the single Paralyzed. At the same time as the album was released, Goodrem issued a book under the same title featuring the stories behind each song on Bridge Over Troubled Dreams. Delta Goodrem has previously scored #1s on the ARIA albums chart with Innocent Eyes in March 2003, Mistaken Identity in November 2004, Delta in October 2007 and Wings Of The Wild in July 2016. Goodrem draws to equal second alongside Kasey Chambers for most #1 albums on the ARIA charts by an Australian female solo artist. Only Kylie Minogue has more, with seven chart-topping albums.
ARIA CEO Annabelle Herd says: “A huge congratulations to Delta Goodrem on reaching #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart with Bridge Over Troubled Dreams. Her fifth #1 album is a testament to her enduring appeal to fans nearly two decades on from her record-breaking debut, Innocent Eyes.”
Bridge Over Troubled Dreams is the seventh Australian #1 album on the ARIA charts in 2021.
