P!nk achieves ARIA Album Chart milestone & ARIA Singles Chart success continues for Rihanna
Flood Relief: Artists For The Flood Appeal remains biggest seller of the week
International superstar P!nk continues to dominate the ARIA Album Chart, chalking up her thirteenth straight week at the pinnacle with “Greatest Hits… So Far!!!”. P!nk this week achieves a feat that hasn’t been seen since the early 1980’s, when Dire Straits’ “Love Over Gold” racked up an unbroken fourteen weeks at the top of the chart. A noteworthy mention also goes to homegrown hero John Farnham, who topped the ARIA Album Chart for eight weeks running with “Whispering Jack” in 1987. The album dropped to No.2 behind a compilation album before resuming peak position for a further ten weeks straight. Had the charts been compiled as they are now, he would have officially achieved a stellar twenty consecutive weeks at number one. Over on the ARIA Compilation Chart, Flood Relief: Artists For The Flood Appeal holds in top spot for a third consecutive week and continues as the highest selling release of the week.
