This Week In Pop – 13 September 2023

Our eclectic team of writers from around Australia – and a couple beyond – with decades of combined experience and interest in all fields.

Welcome to This Week In Pop.

An Australian band is at #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart for a second week in a row, as Polaris debuts in the top spot with 'Fatalism'.

'Fatalism' marks the third studio album and a chart peak for the Aussie metalcore act. 'The Mortal Coil' peaked at #6 in 2017 and 'The Death Of Me' climbed to #3 in 2020.

The announcement of The Weeknd’s Australian tour in November continues to pump up his chart performance, with 'The Highlights' rising from #3 to #2, while his former #1 album 'Starboy' holds at #4.

On the Singles Chart, Doja Cat’s 'Paint The Town Red' sits at #1 for the third week.
