ARIA Charts: John Butler, Cher & The Living End new top 3 albums

Mediaweek editor James Manning examines the latest ARIA charts.

• Singles: George Ezra #1, Khalid and Loud Luxury into top 10
• Albums: Top 3 turnover with John Butler, Cher & The Living End


Not a lot of movement this week with just two artists creeping into the top 10 from lower down the chart while three artists debuted inside the top 50 – but all of them in the 40s.

Khalid’s Better climbed into the top 10 at #8, moving up from #12 after three weeks on the chart.

Also into the top 10, at #10 from #14, is Canadian DJ duo Loud Luxury with Body, which hits a new peak after 12 weeks on the chart.

Three new tunes debuted lower down the chart:
#41 DJ Snake with Taki Taki featuring Selena Gomez, Ozuna and Cardi B
#42 Lil Wayne with Mona Lisa featuring Kendrick Lamar
#50 Lil Wayne with Don’t Cry featuring XXXTentacion


Lots of turnover at the top with six top 50 chart debuts, five of them cracking the top 10 on week one.

Eminem has lost top spot with Kamikaze dropping to #4 on its fifth week on the chart.

The new top 10 debuts are:
#1 The John Butler Trio with Home. Seventh album and fourth #1 for Burler.
#2 Cher with Dancing Queen. 29 years after first landing a #1 album, Cher is back in the top 10 with her 26th album.
#3 The Living End with Wunderbar. Eighth album, two of which have topped the ARIA chart.
#6 Lil Wayne with THA Carter. The rapper’s 12th album and the first to chart here since 2013.
#8 Logic with YSIV. Another US rapper in the top 10, this time with his fourth album.

Missing out on a top 10 spot was the chart’s other top 50 debut:
#15 Rod Stewart with Blood Red Roses

After their NRL Grand Final appearance last weekend, Gang Of Youths have eased back into the top 50 at #43 after the #1 album Go Farther In Lightness has spent a total of 59 weeks on the chart.

Also slipping into the 50 at #47 on another wave of ABBA nostalgia is ABBA Gold & More (Anniversary edition) after 58 weeks on the chart and a previous peak of #9.

Easing out of the top 50 after 319 weeks on the chart is INXS with The Very Best.
