ARIA Charts: Double #1 for Adele as 30 drops


• Top ten debuts for Paul Kelly and Bruce Springsteen


Topping the ARIA albums chart this week with 30, Adele also returns to the top of the singles chart with Easy On Me. The British star’s third #1 single in Australia spent two straight weeks in the top spot on debut and has only dropped as low as #3 during its run on the chart. Adele has nine debuts in this week’s top 50: Oh My God (#6), I Drink Wine (#10), My Little Love (#11), Can I Get It (#15), Strangers By Nature (#18), Cry Your Heart Out (#21), To Be Loved (#25), Hold On (#31) and All Night Parking featuring the late American jazz pianist Erroll Garner (#33). Previous hit Rolling In The Deep (#3 May ’11) has re-entered at #46.

Despite Sydney’s PNAU being the ones to remix Elton John & Dua Lipa’s Cold Heart (Pnau Remix) at #3, the highest charting Australian artist this week is The Kid Laroi with Stay at #4. His single with Justin Bieber spent 14 weeks straight at the top of the chart before it was taken over by Adele’s Easy On Me. This is the 20th week that Stay has appeared in the top 50, and the 50th week for The Kid Laroi’s other major single, Without You.

In its second week on the chart, American DJ/producer Acraze’s remix of Cherish’s 2006 single Do It To It has climbed 23 spots to hit #16. The original only peaked at #67 in Australia on release.

American singer-songwriter Gayle debuts at #17 with the single ABCDEFU. It’s the first ARIA top 50 entry for the Nashville-based 17-year-old.

American band Imagine Dragons debut at #35 as they team up with rapper JID for Enemy at #35. The track comes from the soundtrack of the animated streaming television series Arcane, which is set in the League of Legends universe. It’s Imagine Dragons’ first top 50 entry since Bad Liar in January 2019.


British pop megastar Adele takes out her third #1 on the ARIA albums chart as she returns with 30. The singer-songwriter’s fourth album comes six years on from 25, which spent eight weeks in the top spot after claiming #1 in November 2015. The album includes the chart-topping single Easy On Me, which this week returns to #1. Adele also previously hit the top with 21 in May 2011, which spent 32 weeks in the top spot, the second most weeks at #1 in ARIA Charts history.

On the back of 30’s success, this week Adele sits at #7 with 25, #10 with 21 and #29 with 19.

The highest ranked Australian album comes from an Aussie legend this week as Paul Kelly debuts at #2 with Paul Kelly’s Christmas Train. The ARIA Hall Of Fame member’s first festive season collection features a host of guests including Kasey Chambers, Dan Kelly, Emma Donovan, Lior, Vika & Linda Bull, Kate Miller-Heidke, Marlon Williams and more. The album includes a new version of Kelly’s 1996 Australian Christmas classic How To Make Gravy. It’s the singer-songwriter’s eighth studio album in six years and the fifth of those to hit the top ten.

Bruce Springsteen debuts at #6 with the live album The Legendary 1979 No Nukes Concerts. Recorded with the E Street Band at the September 1979 MUSE (Musicians United for Safe Energy) benefit concerts at Madison Square Garden in New York City, the set includes 13 songs performed over two nights. Springsteen last appeared on the chart with a live album three years ago with Springsteen On Broadway at #6 in December 2018.

Delta Goodrem’s 2020 Christmas album Only Santa Knows returns to the chart at #13. Its move back up the chart comes thanks to the release of a deluxe edition featuring four additional tracks. Spending seven weeks in the top 50 last year, the album peaked at #2.

Debuting at #18, former Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant and Alison Krauss reunite for Raise The Roof. It’s the second collaborative effort from the duo after Raising Sand, which won Album of the Year at the 2009 Grammy Awards. Plant last charted with Carry Fire at #16 in October 2017.

This week marks the 70th week that both F*ck Love (Over You) by The Kid Laroi and folklore by Taylor Swift have appeared in the top 50. It’s week 80 for AM by Arctic Monkeys.
