It is shaping up to be a big week on the ARIA charts, with both Jonas Brothers‘ Happiness Begins and Avicii‘s posthumous TIM vying for top three spots on the Albums Chart.
Local legend Meg Mac is looking at a top ten debut for recent mini album Hope. The Music awarded the album three and a half stars and wrote it “highlights her undeniable talent as a vocal powerhouse and lyricist”.
Tyga‘s Legendary is also expected to place top 10 and The Music‘s June cover stars Polish Club look to cinch a top 15 finish for their newest long player Iguana.
The placings come after Jimmy Barnes broke a massive record on the Albums Chart last week, overtaking U2 and Madonna for most #1 albums.
Other album debuts this week include Aurora‘s A Different Kind Of Human (top 40) and Santana‘s Africa Speaks (top 50).
Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper‘s A Star Is Born soundtrack is also expected to move back up into the top 15.
Over on the Singles Chart, Avicii‘s Heaven is expected to land top 30, along with Luke Combs‘ Beer Never Broke My Heart. The Chainsmokers & Bebe Rexha‘s Call You Mine is looking to debut top 40. Local acts Tones & I and Guy Sebastian are both expected to debut top 50 with Dance Monkey and Choir respectively.
Sebastian was honoured earlier in the week on the Queen’s birthday honours list.
