Taylor Swift's 'Tortured Poets' Logs Fourth Week at No. 1 In Australia

Taylor Swift makes it a month on top in Australia with The Tortured Poets Department (Universal), while Post Malone’s “I Had Some Help” featuring Morgan Wallen roars to No. 1 on the national singles chart.

Swift’s record-shattering Tortured Poets completes a fourth week at No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, published Friday, May 17, holding off Troy Cassar-Daley’s fast-starting Between The Fires (Sony).

Cassar-Daley, a homegrown country legend, recorded the new album at his old family home in Halfway Creek, northern New South Wales, where his beloved mom died. Between The Fires is Cassar-Daley’s 14th studio album, and his most personal to date. With its debut at No. 2, Fires becomes Cassar-Daley’s equal highest-charter with 2013’s The Great Country Songbook, his collaborative recording with Adam Harvey. Until now, his highest charting solo album was The World Today, which peaked at No. 3 in 2021, one of his six top 10 LPs. Across a 30-year career, Cassar-Daley has collected five ARIAs and 40 Golden Guitar awards.

Following the announcement of her Australian arena tour later this year, Olivia Rodrigo’s sophomore album Guts (Geffen/Universal) rebounds 10-3, and her debut Sour (Interscope/Universal) lifts 11-4. Both albums have led the ARIA Chart. The domestic leg of Rodrigo’s GUTS World Tour (produced by Live Nation) expands to eight shows, spread across Sydney and Melbourne.

Angus & Julia Stone nab a top 5 debut with Cape Forestier (Sony), new at No. 5. All five of the sibling act’s studio albums have reached the top 10, including leaders with 2010’s Down The Way and 2014’s Angus & Julia Stone.

Meanwhile, U.S. rock veterans King of Leon land at No. 20 with Can We Please Have Fun (Interscope/Universal), their ninth studio album. All told, six KoL LPs have cracked Australia’s top 10, four of them hitting No. 1: Only By The Night (in 2008), Come Around Sundown (2010), Mechnical Bull (2013) and When You See Yourself (2021). Can We Please Have Fun led the U.K.’s midweek chart.

Over on the ARIA Singles Chart, Malone’s country-tinged “I Had Some Help” (via Universal) featuring Wallen opens at the penthouse. Posty recently enjoyed a stint at No. 1 with “Fortnight,” his duet with Taylor Swift, while Morgan logged eight weeks at No. 1 last year with “Last Night,” lifted from his ARIA Chart-topping LP One Thing at a Time.

Tommy Richman’s “Million Dollar Baby” (CONC) and Shaboozey’s “A Bar Song (Tipsy)” (EMP) are unchanged at No. 2 and 3, respectively.

Finally, Kendrick Lamar’s controversial diss track “Not Like Us” (Interscope/Universal) is on fire, improving 5-9. According to ARIA, it’s Kdot’s his first top five appearance since “Die Hard” went to No. 5 in 2022.
