The Rubens, Olivia Rodrigo Rule Australia’s Charts

The Rubens have ruled triple j’s Hottest 100, but they’ve never led their homeland’s albums chart…until now.

The alternative rock outfit debut at No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart with 0202.

It’s the fourth studio album from the Menangle, New South Wales band and the fourth Australian No. 1 album on the ARIA Charts in 2021.

0202 features the ARIA Award-nominated single “Live In Life,” and it follows the band’s self-titled debut album (No. 3 in 2012), Hoops (No. 2 in 2015) and Lo La Ru (No. 3 in 2018).

“It’s an incredible feat ten years into a career,” comments ARIA CEO Annabelle Herd, “and I look forward to seeing them continue to knock down more milestones into the next ten and beyond. I also want to congratulate everyone in The Rubens team, Ivy League Records and Mushroom.”

The Rubens took the top prize in the Triple J Hottest 100 poll in 2016 with “Hoops”.

“We uploaded our first track on triple j unearthed ten years ago and to be still doing what we love and connecting with fans all over the world means so much to us,” says the band in a statement following their ARIA chart title, “especially after such a tough year for our industry as a whole.”

Foo Fighters latest chart leader Medicine At Midnight dips 1-2, while Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia soars 16-3 off the back of the release of a deluxe “Moonlight Edition.” Future Nostalgia logged one week at No. 1 in April 2020, and the British pop singer performed at the 2019 ARIA Awards.

The Top Five this week is closed out by two former leaders, The Kid Laroi’s F*ck Love (Savage) and The Weeknd’s The Highlights, respectively.

A little further down the list is Luca Brasi, whose fifth studio album Everything Is Tenuous bows at No. 7. It’s a new ARIA Albums Chart for the Tasmanian rock band.

This week’s U.K. No. 1 belongs to Slowthai’s Tyron. In Australia, the British rapper just misses out on the Top 10, as his sophomore album starts at No. 11 for the rapper’s ARIA Top 50 debut.

Just one spot behind is Adelaide’s superstar singer and songwriter Sia, with Music – Songs From And Inspired By The Motion Picture. The soundtrack to the feature film Music, for which Sia makes her directorial debut, is the award-winning artist’s first appearance on the ARIA chart since Everyday Is Christmas went to No. 7 in November 2017.

Sia previously topped the chart with 2014’s 1000 Forms Of Fear and 2016’s This Is Acting.

Over on the ARIA Singles Chart, Olivia Rodrigo motors to a sixth consecutive week with “Drivers License” while Lil Tjay & 6lack have the highest new entry with “Calling My Phone,” new at No. 3.
