This Week In Pop – 6 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.

This week, the 20th anniversary edition of 'Vulture Street' from legendary Australian band Powderfinger debuts at the top of the Albums Chart.

'Vulture Street' was the fifth studio album from Powderfinger and spent three weeks at #1 in 2003, going on to win Album of the Year at the 2003 ARIA Awards.

In the #2 spot is the debut of Zach Bryan’s self-titled album. It is his fourth studio album. It’s been a good week for The Weeknd, with the announcement of his Australian tour in November sending his albums flying back up the chart. His greatest hits package, 'The Highlights', holds at #3; former #1 album 'Starboy' jumps from #18 to #4.

On the Singles Chart, Doja Cat’s 'Paint The Town Red' holds at #1 for a second week. It samples Dionne Warwick’s 1964 classic 'Walk On By', which was written by music legends Burt Bacharach and Hal David.
