Welcome to This Week In Pop.

This week, Taylor Swift sticks at #1 for a third week on the ARIA Albums Chart with 'The Tortured Poets Department', while Dua Lipa’s third studio album 'Radical Optimism' arrives at #2.

'Radical Optimism' is Dua’s third top 10 album: Dua Lipa topped out at #8 in 2017 and 'Future Nostalgia' spent three non-consecutive weeks at #1 across 2020, 2021 and 2022.

Sabrina Carpenter claims her first #1, as 'Espresso' steps up from #2 last week. Carpenter co-wrote it with Amy Allen – who has penned hits for Halsey, Tiesto, Harry Styles, Selena Gomez and others.

American singer-rapper Tommy Richman’s first hit, 'Million Dollar Baby', zips from #33 to #2.

Kendrick Lamar debuts in the top 10 with two diss tracks: 'Euphoria' at #8 and 'Not Like Us' at #9. Both are in response to Drake’s songs and comments directed at Lamar and the latest move in their ongoing and increasingly vicious feud.
