Ariana Grande’s “thank u, next” album logs a fifth week atop the ARIA Albums Chart to now become this years longest running No.1 album (so far).

The set “thank u, next” increases Ariana’s overall weeks at No.1 to now eight weeks, moving her up on the listing for ‘Accumulated Weeks at No.1: Albums (1965 to 2019)’ from equal 90th to now outright 84th, stuck between Metallica (8 weeks from 6 #1’s) at No.83 and Barbra Streisand at No.85 (8 weeks from 3 #1’s). While for the same listing for this decade she is stable at No.9 and one week shy of tying with One Direction’s nine weeks at the top (from 4 #1’s).

With this week being the anniversary here of the 1976 first No.1 single for Queen with “Bohemian Rhapsody” (2 weeks from 22nd of March, 1976), its fitting that the soundtrack for their biopic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ is back up one spot to No.2, while their “Greatest Hits” set is also back up one place to land at No.3 and they further rise a single place to No.6 with “The Platinum Collection”.

Also back up one spot apiece is the soundtrack for “A Star is Born” for Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper and “The Great Expanse” for The Hilltop Hoods to No.4 and No.5 respectively. Last week U.S. country singer Luke Combs saw his debut album “This One’s for You” crack one year on the charts, and he also did his second tour of Australia, which all helps his album to rise back up twelve places this week to land at a new peak of No.7 and the album scores its second week within the Top 10 (it logged a week at No.8 in June of 2018).

Also touring the country at the moment are The Eagles, who returned at #100 last week with “Selected Works: 1972-1999” which previously peaked at No.11 (Sept 2014) and this week that album bullets up ninety-two places to land at a new peak of No.8 and after 65 weeks of charting (since first charting in August of 2014) this is its first week within the Top 10. Holding at No.9 again is ‘The Greatest Showman’ soundtrack while last weeks No.8 debut for Juice WRLD and “Death Race for Love” is down two spots to No.10 and the album also entered at No.1 in both America and Canada this past week.
