The Kid Laroi’s debut studio album The First Time lands in the ARIA Albums Chart this week with a #3 debut, while Taylor Swift holds at #1 for a third straight week with 1989 (Taylor’s Version).
The First Time contains the recent hits Love Again, Too Much (with Jung Kook and Central Cee) and Bleed. The Redfern born-and-raised singer’s mixtape F*ck Love (Savage) hit #1 for one week in 2021. He has won three ARIA Awards, with Love Again receiving two nominations at Wednesday night’s Awards for Best Solo Artist and Song of the Year.
Stray Kids debut at #2 with Rock-Star, the South Korean boy band’s fifth charting album or EP here. They climbed to #2 earlier this year with 5-Star.
Re-issues of The Beatles’ greatest hits albums 1962-1966 (The Red Album) and 1967-1970 (The Blue Album) jump back to the chart at #15 and #8 respectively. 1967-70 contains the new track Now And Then, which debuted at #6 on the ARIA Singles Chart last week.
In 1973, 1967-1970 peaked at #8 – which it matches this week – and 1962-1966 climbed to #9. The Beatles’ most recent #1 album here was 1, which spent nine weeks on top in late 2000 and early 2001.
Higher, the fifth studio album by American country music singer Chris Stapleton debuts at #13, while Old Mervs arrive at #33 with Give It Up, the West Australian band’s first charting album.
Hilltop Hoods are new at #37 with The Highlights, and in more Australian success, Fronzoli by Psychedelic Porn Crumpets debuts at #72.
On the Singles Chart, Jack Harlow comes in at #1 with his new track Lovin On Me. It’s his fifth top 10 hits here: What’s Poppin hit #8 in 2020, Industry Baby (with Lil Nas X) peaked at #4 in 2021 and First Class spent two weeks at #1 in 2022. He also featured on Jung Kook’s 3D, which went to #7 last month.

It’s her 11th top 10 single here, following Be The One (#6 in 2015), New Rules (#2 in 2017), IDGAF (#3 in 2018), One Kiss with Calvin Harris (#3 in 2018), Don’t Start Now (#2 in 2019), Physical (#9 in 2019), Break My Heart (#7 in 2019), Levitating with DaBaby (#4 in 2020), Cold Heart with Elton John and PNAU (#1 for 10 weeks in 2021 and 2022) and Dance The Night (#3 earlier this year).
