Miley Cyrus is the best bet for taking over the top spot on the ARIA chart this week but this week’s pure heroine Lorde is putting up a good fight.
It’s another busy week of releases, but Lorde could hold out at the top with her debut set “Pure Heroine”, but with the rest of the top six all being new entries this past week, we could see another wipeout again with new albums from Miley Cyrus and “Bangerz”, Jessica Mauboy’s “Beautiful” and Paul Dempsey’s covers album “Shotgun Karaoke”, featuring his versions of songs by Queen, Concrete Blonde, Wilco, INXS, You Am I and Bad Religion amongst others.
Busby Marou could see their second album “Farewell Fitzroy” debut within the Top 20, plus there could also be new entries within the twenty for Panic at the Disco with “Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die” and Korn with “The Paradigm Shift”. Whilst Pusha T could see his sixth album “My Name is My Name” debut within the Top 30 and St. Lucia enter inside the Top 40 with “When the Night”.
Further entries could come from Ta-ku and “Songs to Break Up to”, Danny Brown with “Old”; the self-titled album for World’s End Press, Darkside with their album “Psychic” and Saviour could sneak into the lower part of the chart with “First Light to My Death Bed”.
With James Blunt appearing on X-Factor this past week performing his current hit “Bonfire Heart” (TW-75, HP-51), we could see the song rebound up and into the top three this week, whilst also returning his first big hit “You’re Beautiful” into the Top 70.
Another X-F performer was sixth placed 2012 contestant Nathaniel (Willemse) who could see his debut single “You” crash into the Top 5 this week, competing with possible chart-holder “Roar” for Katy Perry and last weeks No.2 debut for Jessica Mauboy “Pop a Bottle”.
Miley Cyrus, Redfoo and Jason DeRulo should all retain their Top 10 status this week, whilst Taylor Henderson’s rendition of Avicii’s “Wake Me Up” on X-Factor could return the original to the Top 10 this week, alongside Avicii’s new single “Hey Brother” (TW-93, HP-60) which is now the official third single from his “True” album and could leap up into the Top 10.
Zedd and Hayley Williams (from Paramore) debuted at No.32 this past week with “Stay the Night” which could leap up into the high Top 20 region along with the new Jason DeRulo track “Marry Me” (debut TW-28) and Ylvis with “The Fox” (TW-29) . There’s a potential debut for Justin Bieber’s new single “Heartbreaker” along with Eminem’s “Survival” (which I think samples Peter Gabriel’s ‘Games Without Frontiers”) and Pearl Jam with “Sirens”, which could all debut in the higher end of the Top 30, whilst we could also see an entry from future tourists here Pitbull & Ke$ha with “Timber” and Havana Brown with “Warrior” within the Top 40.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis could climb further into the Top 40 with “White Walls”, whilst Mike Will Made-it and Miley could see a Top 40 entry for “23” (TW-52), with the new Calvin Harris track “Under Control” featuring Alesso and Hurts possibly landing a Top 50 debut, and X-F’s Taylor Henderson entering with his version of “Wake Me Up”.
Jai Waetford performed the Keane track “Somewhere Only We Know” on X-Factor last week, and the original could return to the Top 60 this week, and with ‘Fast & Furious 6’ out here on DVD & Blu-Ray this week, we could see a return to the Top 100 for “We Own it” by 2 Chainz & Wiz Khalifa. With Rihanna on tour here, her new single “Pour it Up” could debut within the Top 70 alongside another Hunger Games 2 soundtrack song “Elastic Heart” by Sia featuring The Weeknd & Diplo. The much talked about teaming of Miley Cyrus & Britney Spears for the song “SMS” could sell enough from her new album “Bangerz” to enter the Top 80, whilst Pink could see a climb for her new track “Walk of Shame” (TW-100), with a possible low entrance for the new John Newman song “Cheating”.
