Lime Cordiale land their first No. 1 in the Land Down Under, while Juice WRLD makes a big entrance with his posthumous album release Legends Never Die.
Brothers Oli and Louis Leimbach, the backbone of Sydney indie-rock oufit Lime Cordiale, bow at the summit of the ARIA Albums Chart with 14 Steps To A Better You (Chugg Music/MGM), their sophomore set which contains three tracks from the 2019 Triple J Hottest 100 countdown: “Robbery” (No. 7), “Inappropriate Behavior” (No. 13) and “Money” (No. 32).
Lime Cordiale’s chart effort easily beats the No. 79 peak of their debut LP Permanent Vacation, from October 2017.
14 Steps To A Better You is the tenth Australian No. 1 album on the ARIA Charts in 2020.
Completing an all-Australian top two is DMA’S’ The Glow (I Oh You/Universal), which starts at No. 2. The Glow enters at No. 4 in the U.K. and No. 1 in Scotland and it’s the Sydney trio’s third consecutive top 10 on the ARIA Albums Chart.
Meanwhile, Juice WRLD (real name Jarad Anthony Higgins) makes a big splash with Legends Never Die (Interscope/Universal), new at No. 3.
Legends Never Die launches seven tracks in the ARIA Singles Chart top 40 — including two top 10s (“Come & Go” at No. 6, “Life’s a Mess” at No. 8) — and 18 tracks in the top 100.
The Chicago rapper, who died last December, aged just 21, currently rules the albums charts in the U.S. and the U.K.
The top five is completed by another posthumous hip-hop release, Pop Smoke’s Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon (Universal), at No. 4; and Harry Styles’ second album Fine Line (Columbia/Sony) at No. 5.
Over on the ARIA Singles Chart, New Zealand producer Jawsh 685 earns a third-consecutive chart crown with “Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)” (Columbia/Sony), his collaboration with Jason Derulo; with DaBaby’s “Rockstar” (Interscope/Universal) featuring Roddy Ricch, and SAINt JHN’s “Roses” (Sony) completing the top three, respectively.
