The Kid Laroi tops US Billboard 200 with F*ck Love

Sydney-born hip hop artist and global phenom, The Kid Laroi, continues his ascension to superstar status, hitting #1 on the Billboard 200 in the US with F*ck Love.

The Kid Laroi is the first Australian act to hit #1 on the Billboard 200 since AC/DC got there in November 2020 with PWR/UP. He’s the first Australian solo act to be #1 since Sia debuted at #1 in July 2014 with 1000 Forms of Fear. He becomes the first Australian male solo artist to get to #1 since Keith Urban did it with Fuse in September 2013.

Just over a year after its first release, the debut mixtape from Laroi – real name Charlton Howard – has jumped from #26 to hit the top spot for the first time. It comes on the back of the release of F*ck Love 3: Over You, a new deluxe edition of the mixtape.

F*ck Love 3: Over You features the Justin Bieber collaboration ‘Stay’, which currently sits at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart for a third straight week.

The first deluxe edition of the mixtape, retitled F*ck Love (Savage), spent one week at #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart in February this year.
