Amy Shark holds ARIA Albums Chart #1 for second week with Cry Forever

Amy Shark holds the #1 spot on the ARIA Albums Chart for a second week with Cry Forever. It gives the singer-songwriter her longest run in the top spot, having spent one week there with debut album Love Monster (#1 Jul. ’18). Cry Forever becomes the first Australian album to spend more than one week at the top of the chart since AC/DC’s PWR/UP (#1 Nov. ’20), which spent four straight weeks at #1. 

Rag‘n'Bone Man takes out his second Top Ten entry on the ARIA Albums Chart as he debuts at #4 with Life By Misadventure. The British singer-songwriter’s second album comes more than four years on from Human (#3 Feb. ’17) and includes the duet with P!nk, ‘Anywhere Away From Here’ (#43 Apr. ’21).

In its 107th week in the Top 50, Maroon 5’s compilation Singles Collection claims a new peak at #16. During its run on the chart, the album has previously peaked at #17 twice. Their new album, Jordi, will be released on 11 June. The single ‘Beautiful Mistakes’ currently sits at #40.

Veteran singer Van Morrison hits the chart at #41 with his eighth studio album in seven years, Latest Record Project Volume 1. Morrison’s 42nd studio album follows Three Chords And The Truth (#11 Nov. ’19) and includes the tracks ‘Stop Bitching, Do Something’, ‘They Own the Media’ and ‘Why Are You on Facebook?’.
