February 15, 2020

Moves by Michael Bublé, Queen and more!

Returning with their first album in four years, Father Of All…, American punks Green Day have earned their third #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart and first in over a decade. Their greatest hits collection God’s Favorite Band has also re-entered the chart at #44.
 
On the back of his current Australian tour, Michael Bublé returns to the chart at #4 with his latest album Love. The Canadian’s tenth album debuted at #2 back in November 2018. In December 2019, Bublé spent one week at #1 with perennial favourite Christmas.
 
In the week Queen + Adam Lambert kicked off their national tour, the soundtrack to the legendary band’s biopic Bohemian Rhapsody storms back up the chart 21 places to #15. It previously spent four weeks at #1 in January 2019.
 
With the track ‘Say So’ scoring a new Singles Chart Peak, Doja Cat’s Hot Pink moves up ten spots to #35. The album previously peaked at #30.
