YUNGBLUD steals the show

It’s a huge week of album debuts on the ARIA Charts as YUNGBLUD takes the top spot and Aussie act The Butterfly Effect crack the top five, while Nicki Minaj makes it to #1 on the Singles Chart. 

Unashamedly out-there British rocker, YUNGBLUD, debuts at #1 with his self-titled album. The artist’s third studio album is also a chart peak, following Weird!, which peaked at #6 on the Albums Chart in 2020. 

American thrash metal act, Megadeth, are back with their 16th studio album The Sick, The Dying... And The Dead! which takes the second spot on the Albums Chart; while Aussies The Butterfly Effect debut at #4 with IV.  

Proving the power of vinyl, Kendrick Lamar’s Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers is also back in the top 10 after the album’s vinyl release two weeks ago, also taking the #2 spot in the Vinyl Chart.  

On the Singles Chart, Nicki Minaj’s Super Freaky Girl spends its first week in the #1 spot.
