Australian Charts: Post Malone ‘Hollywood’s Bleeding’ Spends 4th Week at Number One

Post Malone has placed his hands in the No.1 cement at the top of the ARIA Albums Charts for a fourth week with his third album “Hollywood’s Bleeding”.

“Hollywood’s Bleeding” also is stuck at the top again in New Zealand, America and Canada (all for a third week), while here it now becomes the equal third longest running No.1 album of 2019, tying with the four weeks racked up in January by the Queen soundtrack to their biopic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, while ahead of him are five-week-running sets by Ariana Grande and Ed Sheeran, and the current leader for this year at seven (broken) weeks is for Billie Eilish.

Post Malone now rises to six accumulated weeks at No.1 in Australia, moving him up the list for ‘Accumulated Weeks at No.1: Albums (1965 to 2019)’ to equal 106th (from equal 120th) to sit along side other acts with six weeks from two No.1 albums in Phil Collins, Oasis and Queen. While on the similar listing for this decade (2010 to 2019) he is now outright eleventh (last week he was equal 11th), and just sitting behind the six weeks racked up by The Hilltop Hoods this decade (they did it with four #1 sets).

Returning to the album chart this week is the eleventh studio album for The Beatles in “Abbey Road” which was issued in early-October of 1969 here (last week of September overseas) and was the last No.1 album in Australia for the 1960’s, starting an eighteen week run at the top on the 25th of October, 1969, running continuously through until the end of February in 1970. This week the 50th Anniversary Edition of the album helps bring it back into the charts at No.2, while it reclaimed the No.1 spot in England this week (it’s overall 18th week at the top there), plus also the top spot in Belgium, The Netherlands and Scotland. Overall this is the fifth time that the album has charted in Australia, it was last on our charts for a 40th Anniversary edition Remastered version in September of 2009 (HP-12), while prior to that it charted in October 1987 (first time on CD, HP-56), and the first re-entry was in late December of 1980 after John Lennon’s passing (HP-89). So this is the first time back inside the Top 10 for the album since its initial chart run in 1969, and at that time there was only a Top 10 albums chart, and it charted for 52 weeks initially, thus this is now its 53rd week inside the Top 10.

Ed Sheeran is stable at No.3 with his duets set “No.6 Collaborations Project”, while Taylor Swift is down two places to No.4 with her “Lover” set. AFL GF performers in both Tones and I with her EP “The Kids are Coming” (5 to No.6) and Dean Lewis with his debut set “A Place We Knew” (17 to No.9 for an eleventh week inside the Top 10) are both within the ten this week, while down two places to No.8 is the Billie Eilish set “When We All Fall Sleep, Where Do We Go?” and last weeks highest entry in “Nine” for Blink-182 drops down six spots to land at No.10.

There are two local Australian acts who send new albums straight into the Top 10 this week, firstly it’s the duo of Busby Marou with their fourth studio album “The Great Divide” which comes in at No.5 and is now their fourth entry and third Top 10 placing, having previously been this high with their second album “Farewell Fitzroy” (HP-5, 2013) and their last set went higher in “Postcards from the Shell House” (HP-1, 1 week on 27-Feb, 2017). Another act with their fourth album is Boy & Bear whose latest set “Suck on Light” comes in at No.7, becoming their fourth Top 10 entry and lowest placed album so far, as the band haven’t issued any new material in four years due to illness in the band. They previously charted with “Moonfire” (LP#1, HP-2, 2011), “Harlequin Dream” (LP#2, HP-1×1 on 26-Aug, 2013) and “Limit of Love” (LP#3, HP-1×1 on 19-Oct, 2015).

* Luke Combs’ debut set “This One’s for You” rebounds six places to No.14 this week.

Why Not” for Liam Gallagher (HP-7, WI10-1) which plummets sixty-four spots this week down to No.71.
* Both the song “Shallow” and it’s parent album ‘A Star is Born’ are logging one year (52 weeks) on the charts, with the album this week down three to No.19, and further dipping soundtracks this week are for ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ (19 to No.22), ‘The Greatest Showman’ (21 to No.26), Aladdin (43 to No.47), ‘Rocketman’ (62 to No.68), ‘Moana’ (72 to No.73) and ‘The Lion King’ (57 to No.75).

* #11 (LP#2) – Kirk by DaBaby is the second studio album for the U.S. rapper born Jonathan Kirk (thus the name of his new album), plus it’s also his second album for 2019, having issued his debut set (Baby on Baby) back at the start of March this year, while this is his first albums chart entry here.

* #12 (LP#1) – Death Rattle by Complete is the debut album for the Perth rapper, who has channelled his personal issues of long-term mental illness, addiction, relationship break-downs and family turmoil into his music. Having previously issued the mixtapes “Paranoia Prison” (2014) and “While We Wait” (2018), this is his first albums chart entry in Australia.

* #13 (LP#5) – Heavy Metal Rules by Steel Panther is the fifth studio album and now fifth entry (and Top 50 placing, 4 studios and 1 Live set) here in Australia for the U.S. heavy metal act, having seen their last two albums both crack the Top 10 here in “Lower the Bar” (LP#4, HP-10, 2017) and “All You Can Eat” (LP#3, HP-2, 2014), while they first charted here with “Balls Out” (LP#2, HP-50, 2011) and their live set was “Live from Lexxi’s Mom’s Garage” (HP-19, 2016).

* #18 (LP#6) – Pollyanarcy by Hermitude is the first new material from N.S.W. electronic duo in over four years, with their last set “Dark Night, Sweet Light” hitting No.1 for a week on 25th of May, 2015, while they first charted with “HyperParadise” (LP#4, HP-37, Feb., 2012), thus this new entry becomes their third albums chart entry here.

* #20 (LP#13) – In Cauda Venenum by Opeth (stands for “Poison in the Tail” in Latin) is the 13th studio album for the Swedish prog-rock band and their first in exactly three years (late Sept 2016 was their last set “Sorceress” {HP-7, early Oct 2016 here}), and here this new entry becomes their seventh Top 100, sixth Top 50 and fifth Top 20 entry in a row in Australia.

* #25 (LP#6) – Welcome Home by Hellyeah is the sixth album, entry and Top 50 placing for the American heavy metal band whose self-titled debut album first charted here in mid-April of 2007 making it to No.49, while this new entry becomes their second highest charted here, with their fifth album “Unden!able” (LP#5, June 2016) being their highest placed at No.20.

* #64 (LP#9) – War in My Mind by Beth Hart is the first ever solo Albums chart entry in Australia for the American singer/songwriter who issued her first material as Beth Hart and the Ocean of Souls in 1993 with a self-titled album, plus it’s her overall second chart placing, as she teamed with blues rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa in 2018 for the third time on their set “Black Coffee” which made it to No.72 here in early February of 2018.

* #72 (EP#4) – Velvet: Side A (EP) by Adam Lambert is a six track EP of the first half of his later 2019 issued fourth album called “Velvet”, and this becomes his fourth albums chart entry here and his lowest placed, as his first three albums all landed within the Top 10 here.

* #87 (LP#8) – Extreme Power Metal by DragonForce is now the fifth straight entry for the English power-metal band since they first charted here with their fourth album “Ultra Breakdown” (LP#4, HP-19, early Sept., 2008) which has so far been their highest charted set, with this new entry becoming their lowest charted set so far.
