Angus and Julia Stone look set to top album chart this week while Paloma Faith is safe with no 1 single.
On this coming weekends chart, it looks set for another female onslaught at the top, although things might be moving around a little, with this weeks’ No.1 song “Only Love Can Hurt Like This” for Paloma Faith and the song that leaped to No.3, “All About the Bass” for Meghan Trainor possibly swapping places.
G.R.L. climbed to No.2 this past week with “Ugly Heart”, which mostly likely will stay still, and the Top 5 should be joined by another gang of girls in the form of “Bang Bang” for Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj, whilst recent tourist here George Ezra could be the only male artist within the Top 5, as “Budapest” (TW-9) seems set to climb yet again.
With Sam Smith in the country recently, and an X-Factor contestants performance of “Stay with Me” (TW-8), the songs looks likely to climb again this week, whilst we should also see Ella Henderson with “Ghost”, Gabrielle Aplin’s “Please Don’t Say You Love Me” and Will.i.am with Cody Wise on “It’s My Birthday” hanging onto Top 10 positions for another week, but they might be joined by a bit of dirty-sax in the form of this weeks No.41 entry “Jubel” for Klingande.
The trio of brothers that are AJR entered at No.58 with their debut single “I’m Ready”, which looks set for a jump into the Top 15 this coming weekend, and 5 Seconds of Summer could continue to climb with “Amnesia” (TW-19). Nicki Minaj could land a fourth Top 50 placing, as she looks set for a Top 20 entry with the new track “Anaconda”, which loops ‘Time After Time’ by Cyndi Lauper throughout the song.
Lilly Wood & The Prick with the Robin Shultz remix of their former European No.1 song “Prayer in C” debuted at No.59 this week, and now looks set for a Top 30 climb this weekend, whilst Maroon 5 should rebound with “Maps” (TW-67, HP-37) into the thirty also. Katy Perry mildly entered at No.54 with “This is How We Do”, which looks set for a jump into the lower end of the Top 30, whilst this weeks highest new entry at No.16, “Happy Little Pill” by Troye Sivan could slip down this week into the same chart region.
There’s a batch of potential Top 40 entries this week, including Slipknot with “The Negative One”, a new Madden Brothers track entitled “Out of My Mind” and rapper/singer Itch featuring Megan Joy with “Another Man”, which has a similar hook and beat to ‘Monster Mash’ by Bobby (Boris) Pickett (in my opinion), it has a very late 50’s beat to it. Last week The Script could have entered with two tracks, the second of whom “It’s Not Right for You” could have come in within the Top 70, this week it could potentially debut within the Top 50 and after formerly peaking at No.51, “Flashed Junk Mind” (TW-71) for Milky Chance could rebound into the Top 50 this coming weekend.
Lower: Sam Smith’s new song “I’m Not the Only One” features Glee actress Dianna Agron (Quinn) in the clip, and it could make a Top 60 entry this week, whilst Jason DeRulo’s new entry for “Bubblegum” (TW-99) could leap into the same region, and the forecast new No.1 album this week is the self-titled third album for Angus & Julia Stone, which could see a third track enter entitled “Get Home” within the Top 70.
The Kite String Tangle entered this week at No.96 with “Arcadia”, which looks set to jump into the Top 70, whilst Meg Mac could see her first chart entry with “Roll Up Your Sleeves” (Top 80), followed by further entries by Timmy Trumpet with “Freaks”, Maroon 5 with “It Was Always You” (Top 90) and Vic Mensa with the smooth sounding “Down on My Luck” could sneak into the Top 100.
The self-titled third studio album for local brother and sister duo Angus & Julia Stone looks set for a massive entry at No.1 this week, with both the standard and more so the Deluxe edition selling at the top of most digital retailers at the moment.
This of course will upset current No.1 Albums Chart holder Ed Sheeran with his second set ‘x’, but it won’t fall far, whilst also expected to hold onto a Top 10 position this coming weekend should be Sam Smith, Coldplay, Sheppard, the ‘Frozen’ Soundtrack, Paloma Faith and we could possibly see George Ezra with “Wanted on Voyage” (TW-31) jump into the Top 10.
We could also see new entries up high from Sticky Fingers with “Land of Pleasure”, their second set and potentially their first Top 10 album, and the soundtrack for the new Marvel film “Guardians of the Galaxy” could make a Top 10 berth even before the film is out (it comes out tomorrow, Thursday), as the mix-tape part of the soundtrack has a heap of 70’s tunes on it from 10CC, The Raspberries, Blue Swede, David Bowie, Jackson 5, Rupert Holmes and Marvin Gaye with Tammi Terrell.
We could see a Top 20 (or even higher) debut for One Day with “Mainline”, and possibly also the debut self-titled album for The Voice winner of 2014 Anja Nissen, whilst Eric Clapton and Friends should enter within the fifty on his new covers album “The Breeze: An Appreciation of JJ Cale”.
Further entries lower down could come via Capture the Clown with “Reign of Terror” and current tourists Hanson with “Anthem”, AJR and their EP for “I’m Ready (EP)”, Spoon with their potentially third ARIA Albums entry (and first since 2010) on “They Want My Soul”, the self-titled album for Wovenwar, and the extended play self-titled set for G.R.L. (EP).
