“Jubel” by Klingande jumped from 41 to 11 this past week, and could leap into the Top 5 this weekend, as too AJR with “I’m Ready” (58 to 16) which is also being used on a couple of different promos for shows, whilst another chart first-timer Lilly Wood & The Prick with “Prayer in C” (Robin Schultz Remix) (TW-59 to 25) could bullet again this weekend and leap into the Top 10.

Hilary Duff’s recent entry “Chasing the Sun” (HP-72, out this week) was the first of several new track she is issuing, with this weeks’ entitled “All About You” looking set for a Top 50 entry, and Missy Higgins new album due in mid September is entitled “OZ”, and features covers of local tracks, two of which could enter this week, “No Secrets” (The Angels track Top 60), and “Shark Fin Blues” (The Drones track Top 70), whilst we could also see a couple of X-Factor contestants enter, including Brothers 3 with their cover of “Just the Way You Are” (Bruno Mars, Top 70) and Reigan Derry with “Unconditionally” (Katy Perry, Top 90).
Jess Glynne has appeared as guest vocalist on two hits this year for Clean Bandit and Route 94, and now her first solo entry “Right Here” could land a Top 70 debut this weekend, whilst another couple of local acts in Bluejuice with “I’ll Go Crazy” and The Hilltop Hoods with “Cosby Sweater” could see Top 80 entries, whilst Pentatonix and their EDM version of “Problem” (Ariana Grande song) and Becky G with “Shower” could see lower entries within the Top 100.
