Billie Eilish maintains her No.1 spot on the ARIA Albums Chart with her debut studio album “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”.

Billie’s ‘Sleep’ album also holds for a second week in both England and New Zealand, plus the album also debuted at the top of the Album Charts in both America and Canada, making it the 27th time that all FIVE Album summits have matched, the last time was at the end of February this year when Ariana Grande held all five locations (Oz, NZ, UK, USA and Canada) with her “thank u, next” set. This time last year we were just cracking out fourth No.1 for the year (with Kylie’s “Golden” debuting at the top {April 16th, 2018}) and this year we have racked up seven chart-topping albums.

What potentially could have knocked Billie off the top spot was the second studio for now 21 year old singer Khalid, as this week his new set “Free Spirit” debuts at No.2, becoming his third albums chart entry (2 LP’s and 1 EP), his second Top 10 and now his highest charted album, beating the No.9 peak of his almost half-a-year old EP “Suncity” (HP-9, TW-95, 23 weeks charted), and his first album “American Teen” (HP-13, TW-22, 101 weeks charted).

Dean Lewis hold at No.3 for another week with his debut album “A Place We Knew”, while this past week ARIA released on their website the vinyl albums EOY sales chart, which had the top selling vinyl album for 2018 being this weeks’ national No.4 set for Queen and their “Greatest Hits” (5 to 4), while the band are also still within the Top 10 with the soundtrack to their biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” (7 to 6) and “The Platinum Collection” (9 to 7).

Ariana Grande’s “thank u, next” album is down one spot to No.5, and after the two Queen albums at No.6 and No.7, the second of three soundtracks is stable at No.8 in the Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper album “A Star is Born”, and the third and final film-set is the retuning-to-the-10 in “The Greatest Showman”, which is up three spots to No.10 and spending a 65th week within the ten. In-between those two soundtracks are Hilltop Hoods with their latest album “The Great Expanse” which after a vinyl resurge last week is back down seven places to No.9 this week.

* The Billie Eilish EP “Don’t Smile at Me” is ten places lower than her current No.1 album as it rises back up to No.11 this week.
* Eminem’s “Curtain Call: The Hits” is back up two spots to No.20 (with his “Kamikaze” set stable at No.19), with other rising collections being by INXS (35 to 34), Elton John (Rocket Man 43 to 38, One Night Only 65 to 59), Queen (GH2 58 to 51), The Wiggles (62 to 53), ABBA (Gold 92 to 68 and More 84 to 74), Fleetwood Mac (Very Best of stable at No.70 at 502 weeks in the chart), Foo Fighters (85 to 73) and Green Day (returns at No.85).
* The soundtrack for the first ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ film is up three spots to No.24, while the second film in the series screened on TV this past week, which sees its soundtrack return to the chart at No.83, with the Disney animated film ‘Moana’ screening during last weeks chart period (it also was shown again on Friday night too), which helps its set to jump up twenty-one spots to No.46, and other rising soundtracks are for ‘Black Panther’ (75 to 71), ‘Forrest Gump’ (98 to 79) and ‘Suicide Squad’ (returns at No.98).
* Two weeks ago Imagine Dragons had their new set climb and old entry fall, last week that was reversed where the older album rose back up the chart and the new one dropped down. This week BOTH of their entries rise up the chart, with newer album “Origins” up ten places to No.41 and older chart entry “Evolve” rises five spots to No.45.
* Matt Corby’s current tour helps his returned album from last week “Rainbow Valley” to rise twenty-three spots this week to No.65.
* After falling out last week the initial album for Juice WRLD “Goodbye & Good Riddance” returns this week at No.72, as too are a couple more of last weeks dropouts in “AMO” for Bring Me the Horizon (#88) and the second Hozier album “Wasteland, Baby!” (#93), with other returning albums being “Dream Your Life Away” for Vance Joy (#92) and “Queen” for Nicki Minaj (#100).
* Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumours” album rebounds sixteen spots this week to No.75.
* Clean Bandit rise back up nine spots to No.78 with “What is Love?”.
* After being close to falling out last week at #100, this week the Jonas Blue album “Blue” is back up eleven spots to No.89.

* The two albums leaving the Top 10 are both debuts from last week in “Trauma” for I Prevail (HP-6, WI10-1) down thirty places to No.36 and “Empath” (HP-10, WI10-1) for Devin Townsend” which plummets a massive eighty-six spots to land down at No.96.
* The second album for Juice WRLD and “Death Race for Love” drops down five spots to No.26.
* After climbing back into the Top 20 last week the Cold Chisel collection “All for You-The Best of” falls back down this week thirteen places to No.31, with other falling best of sets being for Pink (33 to 35), Crowded House (47 to 49), Maroon 5 (45 to 50), Elton John (Diamonds 44 to 47), Red Hot Chili Peppers (66 to 69), Fleetwood Mac (GH 74 to 80), Motley Crue (48 to 82), Guns N’ Roses (76 to 84) and Billy Joel (73 to 91).
* The Motley Crue soundtrack to their recent Nextflix biopic “The Dirt” tumbles down twenty-one spots this week to land at No.44, with other falling soundtracks being for ‘The Greatest Showman: Reimagined’ (38 to 58), ‘Molly’ (60 to 61) and ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse’ (53 to 64).
* Of the ten new entries last week, five live within the Top 100 for a second week (the already mentioned Billie EIlish, I Prevail and Devin Townsend), as also surviving for a second week on the chart is The Black Sorrows set “Citizen John” (11 to 67) and Nipsey Hussle with “Victory Lap” (71 to 77), while leaving after a single week are sets for Ben Platt (#32, highest dropout), Yelawolf (#34), the repacked Keith Richards debut album from 1988 (#41), Luke Dickens (#49) and George Strait (#80).

* #12 (LP#14) – Black and Blue Heart by Russell Morris is the fourteenth studio album for the Australian music legend since his first set ‘Bloodstone’ (HP-12) in 1971, and after three recent albums of blues material, this new set is more rock orientated, with a national tour commencing in Darwin from April 12th (this past Friday), running through until late June.
