#6: Soundtrack ‘Encanto’ – After debuting at #29 last week, the soundtrack to Disney’s 'Encanto' races up the chart to hit #6. The Lin-Manuel Miranda-composed album includes songs sung in both English and Spanish. Two of its tracks have hit this week’s Top 50: ‘We Don't Talk About Bruno’ (#20) and ‘Surface Pressure’ (#44).
#7: Radiohead ‘Kid A Mnesia’ – 'Kid A Mnesia', the reissue of Radiohead’s turn of the century albums – 'Kid A' (#2 October ‘00) and 'Amnesiac' (#2 June ‘01) – re-enters the chart at #7 on the back of a surge in vinyl sales. It returns to #1 on the ARIA Vinyl Albums Chart after debuting at the top of that chart in mid-November.
