On The Charts: Pink Debuts at One

Pink has debuted at #1 on this week's album chart with her new album Beautiful Trauma. Her eight-times platinum Greatest Hits... So Far!!! 2010 compilation also returns to the top ten, up four spots to #9 for its 133rd week on the chart.

Pink continues to add more dates to her recently-announced 2018 Australia and New Zealand tour. The ninth Melbourne show at Rod Laver Arena was confirmed on Friday, alongside a seventh show for both Brisbane and Sydney. Pink's last Australian tour — 2013's the Truth About Love Tour — ended up selling out 46 shows across the country, a total of 600,000 tickets. The updated list of her 2018 tour dates, which is scheduled to run from July to September, is available via Live Nation.

Meanwhile on the ARIA album chart, last week's number one, Triple J’s Like a Version 13 compilation, slips back only to #3, with Ed Sheeran's Divide moving up just one spot to #2 and Jessica Mauboy completing the shuffle of last week's top five, down two spots to #4.

Lotta Sea Lice, the collaboration between Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile, debuts at #5, nine spots clear of the next new entry — Beck's thirteenth LP, Colors. Other notable new releases this week include St. Vincent's Masseduction at #19, Robert Plant's 11th studio album, Carry Fire, at #16  and the first ever top 50 appearance from U.S. rapper, Gucci Mane, who comes in at #49 with Mr. Davis.

Amongst which, INXS' The Very Best compilation leaped up from #33 to #12, coinciding with the 30th anniversary of their landmark 1987 album, Kick.
