Australian alternative rock favorites Violent Soho beat a path to the top in their homeland with Everything Is A-OK (I Oh You/Universal), their fifth studio set.
Everything Is A-OK is Violent Soho’s second No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, and is the followup to Waco from March 2016, their first chart leader. Waco went on to win best group and best rock album at the 2016 ARIA Awards.
Meanwhile, Dua Lipa’s U.K. chart-topper Future Nostalgia (Warner) holds at No. 2 on the ARIA survey, while Sydney rapper Kerser scores his seventh top 10 album with Roll The Dice (ABK Records/Warner), new at No. 3.
All of Kerser’s albums since S.C.O.T. (No. 5 in November 2013) have debuted in the top ten, including his most recent effort Lifestyle, which hit No. 2 in March 2019.
A pair of former No. 1s close out the top five in Artists Unite For Fire Fight (Sony) and The Weeknd’s After Hours (Universal), respectively, while last week’s best-seller, 5 Seconds of Summer’s CALM (Interscope/Universal), dips 1-6.
Also new to the chart this week is All Time Low’s Wake Up, Sunshine (Atlantic/Warner), opening at No. 12. It’s the U.S. rockers’ sixth top 50 entry in the land Down Under.
Drake’s “Toosie Slide” (Republic/Universal), the latest No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, also enjoys the highest debut on the ARIA chart. It’s at No. 3, ahead of Dua Lipa’s “Don’t Start Now” (down 3-4) and Powfu’s “Death Bed,” up (6-5 via Sony).
The only other new arrivals in the top 50 are Jack Harlow’s “Whats Poppin” (Warner) at No. 35 and DaBaby’s “Find My Way” (Island/Universal) at No. 47.
