Chromatica, which also snares the U.K. chart lead for a second week (by a narrow margin), is Gaga’s fourth No. 1 Down Under.
The highest new debut this week belongs to Melbourne alternative rock act Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, whose sophomore album Sideways To New Italy arrives (Ivy League/Universal) at No. 5 on the ARIA Albums Chart and is the best-selling vinyl album of the week. It’s the followup to their debut Hope Downs, which peaked at No. 24 in June 2018.
Sideways To New Italy impacts the Official U.K. Albums Chart this week, at No. 45.
Also bowing in the Australian top 5 is The Ghost Inside’s self-titled fifth album, at No. 5, a new career high.
The Ghost Inside (Epitaph/RKT) is the American metalcore act’s second title to impact the chart after Dear Youth, their most recent set which peaked at No. 16 in November 2014.
U.S. hip-hop duo Run The Jewels bag a career-best No. 25 bow for RTJ4 (BMGWarner), their collab-heavy first album release since Run The Jewels 3, which peaked at No. 36 in January 2017.
Over on the ARIA Singles Chart, DaBaby’s “Rockstar” featuring Roddy Ricch enters a fourth week at No. 1. The international hit is also the leader on both sides of the Atlantic.
