Olivia Rodrigo has the guts and the glory as her sophomore album powers to No. 1 in Australia.
Rodrigo’s Guts (via Geffen/Universal) debuts at the summit of the ARIA Albums Chart, published Friday, Sept. 15, while each of its 12 tracks impact the top 50 on the national singles survey, including two of the top three.
Guts, the followup to 2021’s Sour, which logged eight non-consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the ARIA Chart, is the only new release to appear in this week’s top 50.
Doja Cat and her hit “Paint The Town Red” (RCA/Sony) prevents a Rodrigo double, as former leader “Vampire” flies 7-2 on the ARIA Singles Chart, ahead of “Bad Idea, Right,” vaulting 24-3 for a new peak.
Further down the list, Guts cuts “Get Him Back” bows at No. 6 and “All-American Bitch” opens its account at No. 10, lifting Rodrigo’s tally of top tier hits to eight (including three No. 1s), all racked-up since January 2021.
Meanwhile, Sour finds fresh chart legs, rebounding 18-8 on the latest ARIA tally.
Albums by the Weeknd (The Highlights at No. 2, Starboy at No. 4 via Universal), Travis Scott (Utopia at No. 3 via Epic/Sony) and Zach Bryan (Zach Bryan at No. 5 via Warner) are unchanged from the previous chart cycle.
Veteran alternative rock favorites Grinspoon enjoy a return to the albums chart, just weeks out from the start of their Easy Detention Tour. The two-time ARIA Award-winning band’s Easy reenters at No. 46, just one place ahead of New Detention, both via Universal. Easy peaked out at No. 4 in 1999, while New Detention hit No. 2 in 2002, two of the group’s eight top 10 albums in their homeland. Grinspoon’s national trek is scheduled to start Oct. 29 on the Gold Coast.
