Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign’s ‘Vultures 1’ Swoops In at No. 1 In Australia

Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign land at No. 1 in Australia with Vultures 1.

The result, which answers a question on how international audiences would respond to Ye’s recent controversies, is his fifth ARIA Chart leader, following Yeezus (June 2013), Ye (June 2018), Jesus Is King (Nov. 2019) and Donda (March 2021), an album from which a record-setting 19 tracks flooded the singles tally.

The independently-released effort is a career best for Ty Dolla $ign (Universal), beating the No. 37 peak of Beach House 3 in 2017.
