It truly was only a matter of time before Meg Mac won the Australian charts.
The third album and debut number one by the Sydney-born singer-songwriter, Matter of Time, debuts at No. 1.
That is an improvement over her 2017 debut full-length album Low Blow, which peaked at No. 2, as the No. 2 best. ARIA Award nominations for a best female artist and breakthrough artist of the year were received by Mac’s platinum-certified debut EP, MegMac, in 2014.
The ascent of Matter of Time was rocky. When Mac experienced what she now characterizes as “a bit of a meltdown” at the start of 2020, her third album was already in the can and prepared for release, according to her company, EMI. a breakdown of “creativity.”
The title track, which was written by Mac and Sam De Jong, is the only recording to have survived the cull (Jacob Banks, Muse, Maisie Peters).
Mac shouldn’t have any trouble sleeping now that she has her brand-new crown.
ARIA CEO Annabelle Herd says, “It’s very great to see an incredible local artist like Meg Mac take out No. 1, particularly in a week as tightly contested as this one, it’s a real triumph.
From everyone at ARIA, congratulations to Meg and her team. There is much reason to celebrate when Australia has two consecutive No. 1 debuts.
Mac won that fiercely contested week, finishing ahead of two K-pop titans: Blackpink’s Born Pink, which debuted at No. 2; and NCT 127’s 2 Baddies – The Fourth Album, the most recent release from the NCT sub-unit, which debuts at No. 3.
With “Shut Down,” Blackpink, which has a connection to Australia through bandmate Rosé, earns the highest debut of the week on the ARIA Singles Chart at No. 5. Additionally, the album’s lead single, the former No. 1 “Pink Venom,” has returned to the top 20, peaking at No. 18.
David Guetta and Bebe Rexha’s “I’m Good (Blue)” is at the top of the national singles survey for the second cycle in a row. TikTok-fueled “I’m Good” is at the top of a stable top 3, followed by Nicki Minaj’s “Super Freaky Girl” and OneRepublic’s “I Ain’t Worried,” respectively.
