Fourth #1 for Human Nature

July 30, 2016

Moves for Flume, Keith Urban, Coldplay and more!

With their thirteenth studio album, Gimme Some Lovin': Jukebox Vol. II, Human Nature have become the thirteenth Australian act to hit #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart in 2016. The quartet’s previous album, Jukebox, has re-entered the chart at #24.

Flume’s Skin has experienced a jump of 13 spots following the producer’s headline slot at last weekend’s Splendour In The Grass. A former #1, this week is Skin’s ninth straight week in the top 50 and sixth week overall in the top ten.

Since debuting at #1 in May, Ripcord hasn’t left the top ten (including a second week at #1). In its twelfth week in the top ten, Keith Urban’s third #1 album has moved back up from #10 to #7.

After eight weeks out of the top 50, Matt Corby’s debut album returns to the top 50 for a twelfth week. The former #1’s resurgence comes on the back of Corby’s Splendour In The Grass set.

Splendour In The Grass has led to a host of re-entries this week, including The Cure’s Greatest Hits (#27), Jack Garratt’s Phase (#31) and Gang Of Youths’ The Positions (#35).

After scoring her first #1 single in the US, Sia has re-entered the top 50 at #38 with This Is Acting.


#1: Human Nature ‘Gimme Some Lovin': Jukebox Vol. II’ – Sydney quartet Human Nature pick up their fourth #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart with Gimme Some Lovin' (Jukebox Vol. II). The follow-up to Jukebox (#2 Nov. ’14) is the group’s thirteenth studio album and their first #1 since Dancing In The Streets: The Songs Of Motown II (#1 Oct. ’06). The new album features covers of tracks originally recorded by The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Spencer Davis Group and Sam Cook, amongst others. Human Nature has also topped the ARIA Albums Chart with Counting Down (#1 May ’99), Dancing In The Streets: The Songs Of Motown II (#1 Dec. ’05).

#8: Periphery ‘Periphery III: Select Difficulty’ – American prog-metal band Periphery snare their fifth top 50 appearance with Periphery III: Select Difficulty. The group’s fifth studio album is their first to chart in the top ten, taking over from Juggernaut: Alpha (#22 Feb. ’15) as their highest charting album in Australia.
