Australian Charts: Metallica ‘Hardwired To Self Destruct’ Owned The Week

Metallica has easily taken away the top spot on the Australian album chart this week with possibly the highest selling debut of the year.

While David Bowie ‘Blackstar’ was leading the list of fastest-selling albums of the year followed by Beyonce ‘Lemonade’ and Frank Ocean ‘Blonde’, industry pundits say Metallica ‘Hard Wired To Self Destruct’ will outsell everything so far this year.

That means sales of over 25,000 for ‘Hardwired To Self Destruct’ are not out of the question.

That would mean Metallica could have around a 20,000 sales start over the other big debuts of the week from Little Mix ‘Glory Days’, Bruno Mars ‘24K Magic’ and Kerser ‘Tradition’.

Next week will be a totally different story with The Weeknd ‘Starboy’ and A.B. Original ‘Reclaim Australia’ the two fastest out of the box this week for first day sales.

Flume was given a boost by the ARIA’s. His ‘Skin’ and new release ‘Skin Companion EP’ will be big sellers next week. Metallica ‘Hardwired To Self Destruct’ has also slowed so expect a drop next week. Crowded House will also do well off the back of their Hall of Fame induction and Sydney Opera House shows this week.
