Taylor Swift Extends Australian Chart Streak With ‘1989 (Taylor’s Version)

Taylor Swift makes it a full month at No. 1 in Australia with 1989 (Taylor’s Version) (via Universal), now the longest reigning of her four re-recorded albums.

Swift’s latest hit LP holds off Stray Kids’ Rock-Star (Ing/Universal), unchanged at No. 2, while homegrown rapper Chillinit bags the highest score of the week with his mixtape 420DNA (Virgin Music Australia/ Universal), new at No. 3. The Sydney artist (real name: Blake Turnell) adds to his collection of top 10 appearances on the ARIA Albums Chart, which includes The Octagon (No. 2 peak in 2020), Full Circle (No. 3 also in 2020) and Family Ties (No. 5 in 2021).

Drake’s For All The Dogs (Republic/Universal) vaults 21-4 on the latest ARIA Chart, published Friday, Nov. 24, following the release of the Scary Hours edition, which gathers six additional tracks. The original release of For All The Dogs collected a single week at No. 1 in Australia last month, for his fifth leader.

Following two sold-out shows at Perth’s Optus Stadium, Coldplay enjoys a chart spike for Live In Buenos Aires (Parlophone/Warner), soaring 43-7, for a new peak. Released in 2018, the live album had a previous best of No. 18. Coldplay will return to Australia in 2024 for five shows across Australia and New Zealand, with dates confirmed at Melbourne’s Marvel Stadium (Oct. 30 and 31), Sydney’s Accord Stadium (Nov. 6 and 7) and Auckland’s Eden Park.
