With G Flip up top, they join the few Australian artists to land at #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart in 2023.
St Kilda artist Georgia “G Flip” Flipo has landed at #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart with their new album, Drummer, released last Friday (11 August). They’ve also topped the Top Australian Artist and Vinyl Album Charts. Their previous album, About Us, debuted at #6 in 2019.
With G Flip up top, they join the few Australian artists to land at #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart in 2023, with Cub Sport and Peach PRC landing that place earlier this year.
“Finally, we can celebrate another Aussie at #1 on the Albums Chart,” ARIA CEO Annabelle Herd said in a statement. “Congratulations to G Flip and their team on this absolute triumph.
“As an artist and personality, G Flip has done so much for pushing the narrative of Australian music forward, and truly represents the next wave of homegrown success here and overseas. We couldn’t be happier to celebrate their first ARIA #1.”
With Drummer, G Flip has held off international competition in the Barbie The Album soundtrack, Taylor Swift’s 1989 and Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), and Travis Scott’s Utopia.

Speaking of the new single, Worst Person Alive, upon announcing the Drummer album, G Flip said, "This song is about feeling like the worst person alive after being the one to instigate a breakup.
“One day, you’re in a relationship, and the other person is your number 1; they know everything about you, they know you better than anyone else, you’ve had some of your best memories with that person, and then you break up, and you sadly become strangers."
They added, "I really hate that it’s all or nothing. It’s such a drastic change - 'Last year I was the love of your life, now I’m the worst person alive'".
The album and the single announcement arrived shortly after news that G Flip announced their most extensive Australian tour, hitting some of the most prestigious venues in the country this August and September.
The tour has been so in demand that the Killing My Time singer had to announce additional dates in Melbourne, Sydney and Cairns. You can find tickets via Frontier Touring.
In the lead-up to the release of Drummer, G Flip turned the Blue Mountains into the ultimate stage as they performed 270 metres above the ground with their full drum kit set up on the top of Scenic World’s Skyway cable car. You can check out a video of the stunning performance here.
