Pink has been doing big sales in Australia with over 34,000 units shifting in the past week to give her a comfortable number one position against Muse ‘The 2nd Law’ at number two with nearly 15,000 sales.

Pink also kept Mumford & Sons from the top last week despite their ‘Babel’ album being the fastest selling album of 2012 so far this year in the USA. ‘Babel’, at number three on the ARIA chart, sold a little over 12,000 units.

Pink ‘The Truth About Love’ has now sold around 150,000 units in Australia.

Aussie acts Something For Kate and Grinspoon also had Top 10 debuts with their albums ‘Leaving Your Soul To Science’ and ‘Black Rabbits’.

Other debuts this week were Lupe Fiasco ‘Food & Liquor II’ at 17, Cody Simpson ‘Paradise’ at 31 and Diana Krall ‘Glad Rag Doll’ at 44.
