Welcome to This Week In Pop.

This week, Travis Scott is back in a big way as 'Utopia' takes the #1 position on the ARIA Albums Chart, while the Singles Chart has a new #1 with Billie Eilish.

'Utopia' is Scott’s second #1 album here after 'Astroworld' hit the top spot in 2018. The highly-anticipated album includes guest vocals from Beyonce, Playboy Carti, 21 Savage, Future, SZA, Sampha, Bon Iver and more; while the producers include James Blake, Kanye West, Pharrell Williams and Metro Boomin.

On the Singles Chart, the 'Barbie'-effect continues as Billie Eilish climbs from #2 to #1 with 'What Was I Made For?', marking the first single from the 'Barbie' soundtrack to reach #1. It’s her second chart-topper here and 15th top ten: 'Bad Guy' spent two weeks at #1 in 2019.

Two other songs from 'Barbie' are in the top five: 'Barbie World' by Nicki Minaj, Ice Spice and Aqua holds at #3, while Dua Lipa’s 'Dance The Night' steps up from #6 to #4.
