Five weeks at #1 for Ariana Grande's Thank U, Next

March 23, 2019

Moves for Luke Combs, The Eagles, Florida Georgia Line and more!

It’s week five at #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart for Ariana Grande’s fifth album, Thank U, Next. This week saw Grande begin her world tour in support of the album and previous release, Sweetener (#1 Aug. ’18).
 
Luke Combs takes out a new peak on this week’s Albums Chart with This One’s For You. The American country singer-songwriter’s first album debuted at #16 in March 2018. Its jump of 12 spots in its 41st week in the Top 50 comes on the back of Combs’ Australian tour.
 
Following their Australian tour, legendary American rock band The Eagles return to the chart at #8 with the career-spanning set Selected Works 1972-1999. First charting in 2014, the album previously peaked at #11 on two separate occasions.
 
American country duo Florida Georgia Line move back up the chart 15 spots to #14 with their fourth album, Can’t Say I Ain’t Country. It comes after they played a number of shows around Australia in the last week.
 
Also on this week’s Albums Chart, there are significant moves for Cardi B’s Invasion Of Privacy (up 13 to #26), Ariana Grande’s Sweetener (up eight to #34), Ocean Alley’s Chiaroscuro (re-entry at #39) and Ziggy Alberts’ Laps Around The Sun (up eight to #41).
