Midweek Chart Report: Its All About John Mayer And Katy Perry

Katy Perry looks set to claim the No.1 spot in Australia for a second week with her new single “Roar”.

However a late comer to the release schedule could give her a run for her money, as Eminem is back with the new song “Berzerk”, which looks set to claim a top three entry this week, which would also give it’s sample a higher placing than the original 1981 entry (“The Stroke” by Billy Squier HP-5), whilst Jason DeRulo should maintain his high chart presence.

Avicii and Lana Del Rey could retain their top five placing, whilst Jessie J and “It’s My Party” could leap from its No.20 this week into the Top 10, thanks to her recent promo tour here. Karmin, Lorde, plus Flo Rida & Pitbull should all keep their Top 10 placing, and be joined by Lady GaGa’s “Applause” which could climb higher this week.

With all the talk about Miley Cyrus’ VMA performance last weekend, it looks like she might have three Top 20 placements this week, with “We Can’t Stop” and “Fall Down” (with Will.i.am) being joined by her new ballad “Wrecking Ball”, whilst we could also see a high Top 30 debut for Hillsong Young & Free with “Wake”, followed closely by the new OneRepublic track “Something I Need”.

After slipping out of the Top 50 last week, Robin Thicke’s new single “Give it 2 U” could jump back up and land a new peak within the high Top 40 section, whilst there are also potential Top 40 debuts for X-Factor contestants, with Dami Im and her version of “One” and Jai Waetford’s “Fix You” (plus the original Coldplay version), James Morrison’s “I Won’t Let You Go” and the XF cover by Taylor Henderson all look set for chart entries this week. Drake could see his No.88 debut for “Hold On, We’re Going Home” from this week leap up into the Top 40, and Paramore’s “Ain’t it Fun” (TW-62) and HAIM’s “The Wire” (TW-58) both look set to jump up into the Top 50 region of the chart.

Lower 50: Drake has another track ready to chart in “Started from the Bottom”, the dance track “Bring it Back” by Will Sparks & Joel Fletcher, the new Keith Urban track “Shame”, and hopefully (finally) “American Girl” by Bonnie McKee could all be new within the Top 60, whilst there could be a further new entry from XF’s Jae Waetford with “Don’t Let Me Go”. The story of Green Shoe Studio and their writing of “Oh Sweet Lorraine” is a truly sweet story, and their song could enter the charts this week, whilst Havana Brown could be back with her new single “Flashing Lights”, and we could see a new entry for NONONO and “Pumpin’ Blood” and maybe even Eskimo Joe with their new track entitled “Got What You Need”.

Albums: John Mayer looks set for his second No.1 album in Australia as his new set “Paradise Valley” looks likely to take the top spot here, whilst last weeks winner “Harlequin Dream” from Boy & Bear look likely to maintain its high position, along with RUFUS, Pink, Imagine Dragons and they could also be joined inside the Top 10 by the new and sixth album by Avenged Sevenfold entitled “Hail to the King”.

One Republic could climb again this week with their “Native” album thanks to the new single charting, and Ellie Goulding has repackaged and renamed her “Halcyon” album into “Halcyon Days” featuring the new single “Burn”, which could return the album to the Top 20 this week. Luke Bryan could maintain or climb the charts with his “Crash My Party” album, and we could see a return of Justin Timberlake’s previous albums, as all three are currently selling well. Also look out for a surge of Father’s Day theme albums to climb too.

Big Sean could see his “Hall of Fame” album enter the Top 40 and lower down we could see DevilDriver with “Winter Kills”, *NSync’s “Greatest Hits” collection after the VMA reformation performance, “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones” soundtrack, A$AP Ferg and “Trap Lord”, the new Franz Ferdinand album “Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action” and possibly also the new Eddie Perfect and Tripod collaboration “Australian Songs” under the name Perfect Tripod.
