Pink's first album since the birth of her daughter has topped the ARIA albums chart, followed by new releases from The Killers and Australia's The Rubens.

Pink's The Truth About Love is the singer's sixth album and comes just over a year after the 33-year-old and her husband Cary Hart welcomed their first child, Willow Sage.

Behind Pink is The Killers with their fourth album, Battle Born - the American rock band also recently announced they will be performing at Big Day Out sideshows in Sydney and Melbourne in 2013.

Up-and-coming Triple J Unearthed band The Rubens' self-titled album has finished its first week at No.3.

The four-piece group from Menangle, NSW, formed in February last year and consists of three brothers and a drummer.

In another coup for Australian musicians, Melbourne rapper Seth Sentry's debut album, This Was Tomorrow, finished at No.6.

Canadian Idol's Carly Rae Jepsen has followed her Call Me Maybe success with her second album, Kiss, which debuted in eighth position.

Australia's first Idol Guy Sebastian has topped the ARIA Singles Chart for the sixth week, while the song Gangnam Style by Korean rap sensation PSY has climbed five spots to No.2.

Taylor Swift's song We Are Never Getting Back Together is No.5, down one spot.

Pink's new song, Try, has debuted at No.8, pushing Hall Of Fame by The Script, featuring will.i.am, to No.9 as One More Night by Maroon 5 wraps up the Top 10.

The ARIA country chart remains mostly unchanged with Wreck & Ruin by Kasey Chambers and Shane Nicholson holding steady at No.1, followed by fellow Australians Keith Urban with The Story So Far, and then Adam Brand's record There Will Be Love.

Seven-time Grammy award-winning trio Lady Antebellum are up three spots to No.5 with Own The Night, while country compilation Double Cream 4: The Very Best Of Cream Of Country has fallen three spots to No.9.

Taylor Swift's 2010 album continues to perform strongly and is up one spot at No.10.
