Post Malone bags a seventh successive week at No. 1 on Australiaâs singles chart with âRockstarâ (Republic/Universal), while Pinkâs Beautiful Trauma (RCA/Sony) holds f Sam Smithâs latest LP to make it four straight.
Sam Smithâs sophomore album The Thrill Of It All (Capitol/EMI) starts at the top in the U.S. and U.K. but just misses out in Australia as Pinkâs seventh and latest set extends its reign and collects a third platinum certification. The British soul singer can take comfort in the fact his 2014 debut album In The Lonely Hour also opened at No. 2 and took nearly a year to reach the top. In The Lonely Hour finally hit the summit in April 2015 in its 48th week inside the top 50. The lead single from his new album, the former No. 1 âToo Good At Goodbyes,â this week improves 10-7.
Slipping 2-3 on the ARIA Albums Chart this week is Ed Sheeranâs Divide (Warner), while Australian pop hitmaker Guy Sebastian starts at No. 4 with Conscious (Sony). Itâs the inaugural Australian Idol winnerâs eighth studio album and ninth top ten entry on the albums survey.
Chris Brown's marathon double album Heartbreak On A Full Moon (RCA/Sony) is unmoved at No. 5 while Polarisâ The Mortal Coil (No. 6 Resist Records/Universal),Â Maroon 5âs Red Pill Blues (No. 7 Interscope/Universal) and Roy Orbison's A Love So Beautiful (No. 10 Legacy/Sony) crack the top 10 on debut.
With Rockstar extending its streak on the ARIA Singles Chart and Camila Cabelloâs double-platinum âHavanaâ (Epic/Sony) featuring Young Thug entering another week at No. 2, the highest debut single goes to Taylor Swiftâs âCall It What You Wantâ (Big Machine/Universal). It's new at No. 16.Â
With Reputation released and likely to chart high this weekend, Swift nabs a fourth singles chart entry from the album after âLook What You Made Me Doâ (No. 1), ââ¦Ready For It?â (No. 3) and âGorgeous" (No. 9).
