Justin Bieber does the double in the Land Down Under for the very first time, as “Peaches” (Def Jam/Universal) climbs on the ARIA Singles Chart its parent Justice starts a second non-consecutive week atop the national albums chart.
“Peaches” makes it to the top in its third week, and gives Bieber his fourth best-seller as a lead artist after “What Do You Mean?” (No. 1 September 2015), “Love Yourself” (No. 1, December 2015) and “I Don’t Care” with Ed Sheeran (No. 1 in May 2019).
With the ascent of “Peaches,” the unbroken reign of Glass Animals’ “Heat Waves” (Polydor/Universal) ends at six weeks as it dips 1-2.
Lil Nas X has another hit on his hands as “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” (Columbia/Sony) rockets 13-3. It’s the U.S. rapper’s second stint in the top tier after “Old Town Road” hit the summit in July 2019.
Also rising to a new high is Masked Wolf’s “Astronaut In The Ocean” (ADA/Warner). The Sydney-born Billboard Chartbreaker star sees his viral breakthrough rise 5-4, and it lifts to No. 1 on the ARIA Australian Artist Singles Chart for the first time, having logged four weeks at No. 2.
The Top 5 is completed by Dutch EDM DJ and producer Tiesto’s “The Business” (Atlantic/Warner), down 4-5.
Teen phenom Olivia Rodrigo has the week’s highest new entry with “Déjà Vu” (Geffen/Universal), which opens at No. 13 in Australia. It’s the followup to “Drivers License” (Interscope/Universal) which locked onto No. 1 for six straight weeks, and is at No. 8 (down two spots) on the current frame.
Bieber completes the chart double as Justice lifts 2-1, achieving a feat last managed by Taylor Swift, who ruled the singles and albums charts last December with “Willow” and evermore, respectively.
Justice equals My Worlds from 2010 for Bieber’s album with the most weeks at No. 1.
The highest debut on the albums chart this week belongs to Demi Lovato, whose Dancing With The Devil…The Art of Starting Over (Island/Universal) opens at No. 8. It’s the American pop singer’s third appearance in the Top 10 following Tell Me You Love Me (No. 8 in October 2020) and Confident (No. 3 in October 2015).
Just one place behind is Bronx rapper Lil Tjay’s Destined 2 Win (Columbia/Sony), his second studio set. It’s new at No. 9.
