It’s a fifth week at No.1 for the Post Malone third studio album “Hollywood’s Bleeding”, becoming the equal second longest running chart-topper for 2019.
“Hollywood’s Bleeding” and it’s fifth week at the ARIA Albums Chart summit is now equal to the five weeks logged (but broken) by both the Ariana Grande set “thank u, next” (Feb. & March) and the Ed Sheeran album “No.6 Collaborations Project” (July & August), with the current leader at 7 weeks (also broken) being the Billie Eilish set “When We All Fall Asleep…”. Post Malone also increases his weeks at No.1 to now seven weeks, and it moves him up from equal 106th to now equal 94th on the list for ‘Accumulated Weeks at No.1: Albums (1965 to 2019)’ alongside Jamiroquai and Pete Murray (both with seven weeks from two #1 albums), while for this decade he rises to outright tenth (one week shy of Ariana Grande’s total or eight weeks). The Post Malone album also retains its No.1 slot in both New Zealand and Canada (4 week in both locales).
Rising back up a place each are the Ed Sheeran set “No.6 Collaborations Project” and Taylor Swift with “Lover” to No.2 and No.3 respectively, as last weeks returned 50th Anniversary Edition of The Beatles “Abbey Road” set is this week down two places to No.4. Further rising albums with the Top 10 are the Tones and I EP “The Kids are Coming” (6 to No.5) and Billie Eilish and “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” (8 to No.6), with returning albums to the Top 10 in “Diamonds” for Elton John (15 to No.9, 17th week inside the Top 10) and Ed Sheeran’s “÷ (Divide)” (16 to No.10, 107th week inside the T10).
Two albums debut within the Top 10 this week, the highest of which is at No.7, the digitally only released album (physical is out November 8th) for Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds and their seventeenth studio album “Ghosteen”, and the bands first double album since 2004’s “Abattoir Blues”/”The Lyre of Orpheus”, while it also becomes their twelfth Top 10 album and tenth Top 10 studio album in a row (since 1994), with the bands last two releases going to No.1 in “Push the Sky Away” (2013) and “Skeleton Tree” (2016). This is followed at No.8 by the sixth album for Canadian musician Dallas Green who goes by the name of City & Colour, the new set called “A Pill for Loneliness”, is now his fifth albums chart entry here and also his fourth Top 10 placing (albeit his lowest ever).
