Aussie Country Beats Swedish EDM To #1

Keith Urban has racked up his second Australian number one album in the same week that he landed his second US number one.

Urban's Fuse debuted at number one on the ARIA Albums Chart, which sees an all-new top three this week.

As predicted in midweek figures, Urban pipped Swedish EDM superstar Avicii, who debuted at two with True and acoustic roots favourite Jack Johnson, who landed at three with From Here To Now To You.

Urban's previous number one came in May last year with The Story So Far, while his first US number one came with 2009's Defying Gravity.

Other album chart debuts came from Placebo's Loud Like Love at nine, New Zealand's The Naked & Famous's In Rolling Waves at 12 and Melbourne rapper Mantra had a strong showing with Telling Scenes landing at 17.

Janelle Monae debuted at 22 with The Electric Lady, Kodaline a 24 with In A Perfect World, Elton John's The Diving Board at 26, The Weeknd's Kiss Land at 30 and MGMT's MGMT at 31. And, there was another local hip hop showing at 50, where WA emcee Mr Grevis entered with his second release My Escape.

The ARIA Singes Chart also went as predicted, with Katy Perry's Roar screaming back into number one, ahead of Miley Cyrus' Wrecking Ball. Roar is also top of the Digital and Streaming charts.

The top debut came from world beating New Zealand youngster Lorde, whose Team came in at 19. She well and truly outsold Britney Spears, whose Work Bitch deputed at 30.

X-Factor performances are appearing in the chart as well, particularly from Dami Im, who has four entries in the top 100 – the highest being her version of Roar at 44.
