This week's album chartifacts

#1: Kylie Minogue ‘DISCO’ – Australian pop icon Kylie Minogue scores her seventh #1 album on the ARIA Albums Chart as she debuts in the top spot with DISCO. The ARIA Hall Of Fame member’s fifteenth studio album comes two years on from 'Golden' (#1 April ’18). 'DISCO' was partially recorded by Minogue in her home studio during the UK’s first period of COVID-19 lockdown, resulting in her being credited as an engineer for the first time on one of her albums. 'DISCO' is the 15th Australian #1 album on the ARIA Charts in 2020.
#3: The Kid Laroi ‘F*ck Love (Savage)’ – Moving up from #29, The Kid Laroi’s ARIA-nominated mixtape 'F*ck Love' returns to its previous peak Top Ten at #3 on the back of the release of a deluxe edition, 'F*ck Love (Savage)'. The new edition features seven additional tracks including ‘So Done’ (#7 November ’20), which has hit the Top Ten for the first time this week. The Kid Laroi is nominated for Best Male Artist, Best Hip Hop Release and Breakthrough Artist at the 2020 ARIA Awards.
#7: Little Mix ‘Confetti’ – British girl group Little Mix return with sixth album, 'Confetti'. The follow-up to 'LM5' (#8 November ’18) becomes the quartet’s sixth Top Ten entry on the ARIA Albums Chart. They’ve previously peaked at #2 with both 'Get Weird' (#2 November ’15) and 'Glory Days' (#2 November ’16).
