P!nk’s “Hurts 2B Human” holds for a third week at the summit of the ARIA Albums Chart this week, plus it is newly certified Gold (●) in sales.

All three of this years No.1 albums by solo female artists have now logged three or more weeks at the top, five for Ariana Grande and three for Billie Eilish and now P!nk, while P!nk now sees her tally of weeks at No.1 here rise to 43 weeks in total (holding at 5th on the ‘Accumulated Weeks at No.1: Albums 1965-2019’ listing) and for this decade she has now notched up 32 weeks at the top (holding at No.3 on the ‘Accumulated Weeks at No.1: Albums {2010’s}), while “Hurts 2B Human” also holds for a third week at the top in England.

That former Billie Eilish No.1 set in “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” is on hold at No.2 in Australia, while she just performed in New Zealand this past week where the album has gone back to the top there (fourth overall week) and it also reclaimed the summit in Canada too (3rd overall week). Local country singer Lee Kernaghan sees his seventeenth studio album called “Backroad Nation” come in at No.3 this week, becoming his tenth Top 10 (9 studios and 1 best of) and third Top 3 album in Australia, plus his third successive Top 3 album after 2015’s “Spirit of the ANZACs” (HP-1) and 2017’s “The 25th Anniversary Album” (HP-2).

There are four Aussie acts within the Top 10 this week, and the second and third are back to back in The Seekers and “Farewell” down one to No.4 and current tourist Dean Lewis with “A Place We Knew” which is up one spot to No.5. The fourth and final local singer is David Campbell who is up four spots to a new peak of No.10 with “Back in the Swing”, possibly due to last weekend being Mother’s Day, plus it becomes his sixth Top 10 album here and first since his 2016 stage production album of “Dream Lover – The Bobby Darin Musical” (HP-9, peaked early Oct 2016).

Falling two places apiece are Khalid with “Free Spirit” (4 to 6), recent tourist here Post Malone with “Beerbongs & Bentleys” (5 to 7) and Rob Thomas’ “Chip Tooth Smile” (7 to 9), while the soundtrack for the Queen biopic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ is back up one spot to No.8, and could be joined soon by the soundtrack for the Elton John film ‘Rocket Man’ in the next few weeks (it opens in cinemas on May 30th).

* The soundtracks rising this week are ‘A Star is Born’ (12 to 11), ‘The Greatest Showman’ is stable at No.16, but the ‘Reimagined’ edition jumps up nine spots to No.38, with the final rising s’track being for ‘Black Panther’ (86 to 77).
* With a new No.1 song entry for Ed Sheeran his three studio albums all rise this week in “÷” (18 to 15), “x” (39 to 32) and his first set “+” (68 to 58).
* The Hilltop Hoods have two Top 50 entries this week in their latest album “The Great Expanse” (20 to 17) and then their “Drinking…Walking…Restrung” (57 to 48).
* Luke Combs climbs back into the Top 20 to No.19 with “This One’s for You” as he lands his first singles chart entry this week with “Beer Never Broke My Heart” (which is NOT on this album).
* With a tour and promo work this past week for Amy Shark, her album “Love Monster” rises four spots to No.21.
* With the Elton John biopic coming at the end of the month he sees this week a rise for his most recent best of collection “Diamonds” (which also had a vinyl release last week, and an expended edition on CD this Friday 17th of May), which is up eleven spots to No.22, with his 1974 classic “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” strolling up nine places to No.68.
* Further Greatest Hits sets to climb back up are for Queen (GH 30 to 28, Platinum Collection 51 to 43), Eminem (38 to 33), Maroon 5 (46 to 44), P!nk (returns at No.57), ABBA (Gold & More returns at #74), John Farnham (returns at #76), Bee Gees (returns at #78), Green Day (93 to 80) and Missy Higgins (returns at #98).
* Tickets for the October 2019 tour by Morgan Evans went on sale recently, and his last album “Things That We Drink to” returned to the chart last week, and this week it leaps up fifty-one spots to No.29.
* The Thursday night broadcast and pre-show TV events for Eurovision (semi-final 1) fell into this past weeks sales figures period, and thus the ‘Tel Aviv: 2019′ album for Eurovision returns at No.47 this week, whereas next week it will zoom up the chart thanks to this weekends second semi-final and then Grand Final.
* Ziggy Alberts’ “Laps Around the Sun” logs its half-a-year on the charts by rising back up nine places to No.52.
* Further returning albums are “Love is in the Air” for The Ten Tenors (#62, for Mothers Day), current tourist here and this years Grammy winner for ‘Album of the Year’ in Kasey Musgraves with “Golden Hour” (#63), Guns N’ Roses’ “Appetite for Destruction” (#94), Shawn Mendes’ “illuminate” (#95) and another Mum’s Day favourite in “Love” by Michael Buble (#100).

* Vance Joy’s debut album “Dream Your Life Way” logs its 200th week within the Top 100 this week and is back up a place to No.93.

* Just like the singles chart, there are two dropouts from the Top 10 this week, starting with last weeks returning set of “Don’t Smile at Me” by Billie Eilish (HP-6, WI10-3a) down four to No.14 and last weeks highest new entry and this weeks U.S.A.

* Both of Beyoncé’s Top 100 entries drop into the lower fifty this week in “Lemonade” (34 to 51) and her live set “Homecoming” (67 to 83).
* Further third week entries to hold again this week are “The Balance” for Catfish & the Bottlemen (32 to 54), Paul Kelly’s “Live at the Sydney Opera House” (55 to 71) and “Designer” for Aldous Harding (56 to 96).

* #12 (LP#5) – Confessions of a Dangerous Mind by Logic was a surprise release on Monday or Tuesday for the U.S. rapper, containing last weeks Top 10 single “Homicide” with Eminem (HP-6, TW-12), and earlier release “Keanu Reeves” (HP-92), while this is the sixth Top 100 albums chart entry here (five studios and one mixtape), plus also his fifth Top 50 entry (four studios and the mixtape).
