It seems Splendour In The Grass hype has well and truly taken over the country, with local favourites and festival acts Dope Lemon, Thelma Plum and Allday cracking their ARIA Albums chart top 10 with their respective releases this week.
With new LP Smooth Big Cat, Angus Stone’s Dope Lemon claims the week’s highest local album debut at #2, just behind chart-topping juggernaut Ed Sheeran, whose star-studded No.6 Collaborations Project has unsurprisingly shot to #1.
While unable to top the Albums chart, Dope Lemon did soar to the #1 on the Vinyl Albums chart.
Meanwhile, Thelma Plum’s debut album Better In Blak – which features a Paul McCartney collab – enters the Albums chart at #4, with Allday’s Starry Night Over The Phone debuting at #7.
Other album debuts this week come from Banks’ III (#25) and Blake O'Connor’s Everything I Feel (#31).
Over on the Singles chart, Sheeran continues to reign supreme, with 10 tracks debuting at once, including his collaborations with Travis Scott, Cardi B, Eminem, Skrillex and more, while another seven tracks across No.6 Collaborations Project and his other albums stay in the chart.
Despite dominating the Single chart, Sheeran was unable to topple Lil Nas X’s Old Town Road from top place, with the hit song holding its #1 placement for its 13th week.
