Justin Bieber claims third week at #1 on Albums Chart with Justice

Justin Bieber’s Justice returns to the top of the ARIA Albums Chart for a third week. It becomes the most weeks the Canadian star has spent at #1 on the Albums Chart, taking over from My Worlds (#1 May ’10). Four tracks from Justice are in the Singles Chart Top 50 this week: ‘Peaches’ (#3), ‘Hold On’ (#18), ‘Anyone’ (#30) and ‘Holy’ (#43) 

Spacey Jane’s Sunlight jumps from #43 to #26 in its 21st week in the Top 50. The move comes as the band head into the final couple of weeks of their national tour in support of the former #2 album.

Debuting at #27, American electronic producer Porter Robinson returns with second album, Nurture. It comes more than six years on from his debut, Worlds (#13 Aug. ’14). The album was originally scheduled for release in September 2020 but was put back due to COVID19. The change in release date gave Robinson a chance to change and extend the album’s track listing.

John Lennon’s iconic first solo album, John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band, returns to the Top 50 in Australia for the first time since its original issue, hitting #34. Released in December 1970 in the wake of the break-up of The Beatles, the album’s been reissued to mark its 50th anniversary. The album features the single ‘Mother’, as well as Lennon classics ‘Love’, ‘God’ and ‘Working Class Hero’. Standalone singles ‘Give Peace A Chance’, ‘Cold Turkey’ and ‘Instant Karma (We All Shine On)’ have been included as bonus tracks. A number of different editions have been issued including an eight-disc box set featuring outtakes, jams, demos and alternate mixes. John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band peaked at #3 in Australia in June 1971.
