P!nk powers up the Albums Chart

PinkPantheress edges closer to a #1 single

P!nk powers up the Albums Chart

It’s a pink wash, almost, on this week’s ARIA Charts, as American superstar P!nk roars to #1 on the Albums Chart and newcomer PinkPantheress moves one step closer to the top of the Singles Chart. 

Debuting in the top spot, TRUSTFALL is P!nk’s seventh #1 album in Australia and brings her total number of weeks at the summit of the ARIA Albums Chart to a remarkable 44.  

Three of her albums have spent more than eight weeks at #1: Funhouse in 2008 (nine weeks), Greatest Hits… So Far!!! in 2010 (13 weeks) and The Truth About Love in 2012 (10 weeks). P!nk also scored #1 albums with I’m Not Dead in 2006, Beautiful Trauma in 2017 and Hurts 2B Human in 2019. 

The title track from TRUSTFALL shoots from #34 last week to #19, giving P!nk her 44th top 20 hit in Australia (including collaborations). Thirty-seven of those songs reached the top 10.  

The start of his Australian tour sees two Ed Sheeran albums rush back into the top 10. His 2021 album = jumps from #17 to #6 (it spent one week at #1 in 2021), while ÷ climbs from #15 to #8. The latter bounced in and out of the top spot nine times over the course of 13 months between March 2017 and April 2018, spending a total of 27 weeks at the top. 

On the ARIA Singles Chart, Miley Cyrus’ Flowers holds firm at #1 for a sixth consecutive week (its entire chart life to date). If it scores another week at #1, Flowers will equal the chart-topping run of Miley’s dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, in 1992 with Achy Breaky Heart.  

Nipping at Miley’s heels is English singer, songwriter and record producer PinkPantheress’ Boy’s A Liar, which steps up from #3 to #2. Another star on tour, Harry Styles, sees his 2022 #1 smash As It Was return to the top five, up from #9 last week.
