Billie Eilish’s ‘Hit Me Hard And Soft’ Hits Another No. 1 In Australia

Billie Eilish’s Hit Me Hard And Soft (via Interscope/Universal) leads an all-female top three on Australia’s albums chart.

The U.S. pop phenomenon holds top spot on the ARIA Chart, published Friday, June 14, ahead of Taylor Swift’s former leader, The Tortured Poets Department (Universal), unchanged at No. 2.

The podium is completed by British artist and producer Charli XCX, whose Brat (Atlantic/Warner) bows at No. 3. Brat is her third top 10 appearance in Australia following 2019’s Charli, which peaked at No. 7, and 2022’s Crash, which led the frame for one week.

Further down the list, Rock and Roll Hall of fame-inducted band Bon Jovi lands its 14th top 10 album in a row with Forever (Island/Universal). It’s new at No. 4. The New Jersey natives have led the ARIA Chart with 10 titles, placing them equal sixth place on the all-time list alongside Rap God Eminem and legendary Australian singer John Farnham.

There’s a timeless feel to this week’s ARIA Albums Chart. U.S. pop singer and former Australian Idol judge Meghan Trainor opens at No. 23 with Timeless (Epic/Sony), while Canadian producer and artist Kaytranada starts at No. 42 with his very own Timeless (RCA/Sony).

Over on the ARIA Singles Chart, Eminem’s new track “Houdini” (Interscope/Universal) holds at No. 1 for a second consecutive week.

Sabrina Carpenter continues her hot streak with her former No. 1 “Espresso” lifting 5-2, and her followup “Please Please Please” (both via Island/Universal) entering at No. 4, for the week’s top debut.

Shaboozey’s country tune” A Bar Song (Tipsy)” (via Empire) is unchanged at No. 3.

The highest-flying homegrown track belongs to Australian singer and producer Cyril with “Stumblin’ In” (Spinnin’ Records/Warners), unmoved at No. 32. The groovy cut interpolates the Suzi Quatro and Chris Norman song from the late ‘70s, which was co-written and produced by another Australian, Mike Chapman.
