The Madden Brothers could hold for a second week with “We Are Done”.
‘We Are Done’ is the first No.1 in Australia for The Madden Brothers, achieving something Good Charlotte could not do.
Thanks to its widespread airplay and use in ‘Winners & Losers’ the past couple of weeks, we could see Paloma Faith leap into the either the top spot or the top three with “Only Love Can Hurt Like This” (New TW-82).
This would become Paloma’s first Top 50, Top 10 and Top 5 placing in Australia if she did achieve a high spot this weekend, but there is also former UK No.1 single “Ghost” by Ella Henderson (TW-12) which looks set for a big jump into the top three also. Plus it looks like David Guetta could score his third successive Top 5 hit with “Lovers of the Sun” featuring Sam Martin, whilst last weeks high entry of “Break Free” for Ariana Grande and Zedd should retain its top five place.
The rest of the Top 10 could be made up by Tove Lo, Justice Crew, Charli XCX, Nico & Vinz and possibly Ed Sheeran with “Don’t”, whilst after being sung on the new X-Factor series, “Clown” (HP-34, June 2014) by Emeli Sande could return to the chart, and possibly within the Top 10 or at least Top 20. G.R.L. debuted at No.41 with “Ugly Heart” this week, which could jump into the Top 15, whilst the rest of last weeks Top 20 will be fairly stable.
The Voice: Finals; Johnny Rollins looks set for the highest entry of the week with his rendition of “When a Man Loves a Woman” (Percy Sledge 1966, Jimmy Barnes 1988), followed by Anja Nissen with “I Have Nothing” (Whitney Houston) and Jackson Thomas performing “When the War is Over” (Cold Chisel 1982, Cosima 2004) (both Top 30). Further down there could be entries via Frank Lakoudis with “Sweet Child O’ Mine” (Guns N’ Roses) and ZK with “Don’t Stop Believin‘” (Journey 1982, Glee Cast 2009), whilst coach Ricky Martin performed his current single “Vida”, which could sneak into the lower end of the charts.
X-Factor 2014: The new season of X-Factor started this week, and from the performances on the show, there could be re-entries for Beyonce with “Halo” and also her track “Ave Maria”, Kings of Leon with “Use Somebody”, Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats” and Oasis with “Wonderwall”.
Will.i.am and Cody Wise debuted at No.1 in the UK this week with “It’s My Birthday” (TW-30), which could climb higher this weekend here, whilst George Ezra debuted with “Budapest” (TW-58) which could jump into the Top 30 this weekend, and Vance Joy are set to score their second chart entry with “Mess is Mine” (Top 40), with the new Usher and Nicki Minaj teaming for “She Came to Give it to You” potentially entering within the lower part of the forty. Jeremih could climb into the Top 50 with “Don’t Tell ‘em” (TW-53) and we could have further new entries from Colbie Caillat with “Try” and Broods with “Mother & Father” around the 41-50 region.
Milky Chance returned at No.83 with “Flashed Junk Mind” this week, which could climb into the Top 60, whilst the next new possible entry could be into the Top 80 for Ricki-Lee “Happy Ever After”, and Salt-N-Pepa’s “Push it” (1988) is selling within the Top 80, possibly due to their new car ad appearance. There could be a possible entry for rapper clipping featuring Cocc Pistol Cree and their tune “WorkWork” and also GO COMET! with “Worlds Apart”.
It’s a three-way race to the top of the ARIA Albums chart for this weekend, between Sheppard with their debut set “Bombs Away”, Chicago punk-rock band Rise Against with their seventh set “The Black Market” and the second set for X-Factor 2013 runner-up Taylor Henderson and “Burnt Letters”.
With the interest in the new Paloma Faith track, her current album “A Perfect Contradiction” (HP-22, March 2014) could return to the charts and even enter within the Top 10, whilst also staying within the ten should be Ed Sheeran, Sia, Coldplay, current tourist Lorde, Chet Faker and possibly the ‘Frozen’ soundtrack for a 27th week.
The fifth studio album for Jason Mraz entitled “Yes!” could see a Top 20 debut this coming weekend, plus “No Sleep” by Volumes could also enter in the same chart region, whilst just outside the twenty we could see the self-titled album for Jungle debut and fourth album for Colbie Caillat entitled “Gypsy Heart” could gain a Top 30 entry due to “Try” and it’s possible entry this weekend.
This effect of a hit single boosting an album could also occur for George Ezra with his set “Wanted on Voyage” (helped by ‘Budapest’), scoring a Top 40 entry whilst we could also see Andy Bull enter with his “Sea of Approval” album (Top 50). Further entries could come from D at Sea with their EP “Anchors & Diamonds”, Patrick James with “Broken Lines”, Kilter with the EP “Shades”, the new Drake album “Trophies”, Stu Larsen with “Vagabond”, the eleventh studio album for Pennywise, “Yesterdays” and the new Suicide Silence set entitled “You Can’t Stop Me”.
