ARIA Midweek Report: Robin Thicke Heads For 8th Week On Top

Robin Thicke looks set to keep his “Blurred Lines” at No.1 for an eighth week in Australia this coming weekend.

Thicke’s stretch at the top hasn’t been seen since this time last year when Flo Rida spent eight broken weeks at the top with “Whistle”. Broken in that he was interrupted by The Voice winner Karise Eden in it’s seventh week, but this years winner doesn’t look set to reach No.1 on the singles chart yet (although the albums chart is another story).

Avicii debuted at No.42 last week with “Wake Me Up”, which looks set to blast into the Top 5 this week, and also Timomatic could turn-around and be up in there too with his “Parachute”. Olly Murs is set to climb with his “Dear Darlin’” as too Jessie J with “Wild”, which could land its first week inside the Top 10 after peaking at No.11 so far. With no new Voice singles out this week, we could see a return to the Top 10 for Matt Corby and a leap for Imagine Dragons, whilst last weeks No.2 returnee “Let Her Go” for Passenger could drop dramatically this week.

Miley Cyrus had been sitting at No.26 for the past two weeks with “We Can’t Stop”, which could make a leap this week thanks to the racy video clip now out and Sheppard could see their self-titled EP featuring “Let Me Down Easy” move up into the Top 20 this week. Last weeks Voice judges who debuted high (Delta & Ricky) could take major tumbles this week, whilst Pink and Lily Allen look set to debut with “True Love”.

Lorde could break out of the lower forties and rise with “Tennis Court” and also her “The Love Club” EP, as too we could see a major rise for Vance Joy and “Riptide”, Sebastian Ingrosso and “Reload”, “Bubble Butt” for Major Lazer, “Clarity” by Zedd feat Foxes, “Love Me Again” by John Newman and “When the Night Falls Quiet” for Birds of Tokyo. Look out for new entries by The Arctic Monkeys with “Do I Wanna Know?” and “Black Skinhead for Kanye West.

Expect also possible new entries in the lower part of the chart from Illy with “On and On”, “Classic” by MKTO, “Desert Night” from RUFUS, and “Dumb Ways to Die” by Tangerine Kitty which has already had over 51 million YouTube hits. The Preatures with “Is This How You Feel?”, “Middle Ground” by Mark Wilkinson and the new one for John Mayer, “Paper Doll” all look like potential chart entries this coming week.

The Voice Season 2 winner Harrison Craig was unable to secure a national ARIA No.1 single during the shows run (although he did gain iTunes No.1’s), but his debut album “More Than a Dream” looks set to take the No.1 spot this week closely ahead of Kanye West’s “Yeezus” which has now had a full weeks worth of sales behind it (last week it came out on Tuesday).

Look out for a Top 10 (possible) debut from New Zealand band Fat Freddy’s Drop and their third album “Blackbird” (their second set “Dr Boondigga & The Big BW” made it to No.45 in June 2009), and Pink should be back inside the Top 10 with “The Truth About Love” now that she’s about to start her massive tour here. Other new entries could come from J.Cole with “Born Sinner” (his second album), and the ninth album (and first to chart here) from Swedish metal group Amon Amarth with “Deceiver of the Gods”.
