The newest figures for the ARIA charts have dropped - with Aussie music making some major waves throughout.

The stellar first LP from Ruby Fields has smashed into the number one position for albums. Been Doin' For A Bit has been knocking it out of the park since its release last week, garnering mass critical acclaim and taking out the feature album slot at triple j. The album has seen the massive Lil Nas X album Montero slide all the way down to number four after last weeks debut in the top slot.

“We wanna say a huge thanks to everyone that’s supported us in love or streams or buying we’re beyond stoked to be number one" Fields said of the achievement.

"From a little band I started with my friends to this. Thanks to space 44 for believing in me as a grom and so proud to have a great team behind me in every way”

Fields is also number one over in the vinyl charts - beating out the ABBA compilation Gold and the massive 30th anniversary reissue of Nirvana's magnum opus, Nevermind

Melbourne country stars Darlinghurst have managed to debut in the top ten as well - with their debut self titled release clocking in at number 9. The tenth anniversary of his album Falling & Flying has also seen a chart return for 360, with the rappers sophomore album coming in at number 25.

It's been another huge week for The Kid LAROI as well. After parting ways with his management team at SB Projects, the young star has proven the staying power of his mega hit Stay. It nabs yet another week in the number one position, earning him a huge 12 weeks at the top overall.

Local electro duo PNAU have also hit a new high thanks to their collaboration with Elton John and Dua Lipa. Their remix track Cold Heart has moved up another spot to claim the number two space in the singles chart.
