Katy Perry ‘Prism’ is set to debut at number one this week on the Australian chart.
Perry should take out the top spot on the Albums chart this week with her new album “Prism”, which would become her second No.1 album after “Teenage Dream” (6-Sep-2010) did so just over three years ago.
Lorde, Like a Version Vol.9, Avicii and James Blunt could be joined by “The Very Best” for INXS (TW-67, HP-28) which would jump for the upcoming tele-movie ads that have started screening, whilst Linkin Park could also land a Top 10 debut with their new album “Recharged”.
Beyonce scored a No.51 re-entry with “4” last week, and now that her tour has progressed around the country her three previous albums could return this week along with a Destiny’s Child compilation to boot. Also touring are Fall Out Boy, and their former No.2 album “Save Rock N Roll” (TW-89) could jump back up into the Top 20. Hillsong United with their new album “Zion Acoustic Sessions” and Kerser with his new set “S.C.O.T.” could both debut within the Top 20, whilst the ABC screened documentary about Paul Kelly could see his best of set “Songs from the South” return to the charts within the high Top 30 region.
Also entering within that chart region could be Gesaffelstein with “Aleph” and the just passed Lou Reed could see his breakout second solo album “Transformer” (HP-12, debuted April 1973) return to the Top 30, whilst he could also enter with “The Very Best of Lou Reed” (Top 40) and some of his other work could also return including “New York” (HP-25, peaked April 1989), with “The Velvet Underground & Nico” (1967) could make it’s first chart entry. And in August 2012 lead singer for No Use for a Name and soloist Tony Sly passed away, and this week we could see the tribute album “The Songs of Tony Sly: A Tribute” debut within the Top 50, including acts such as Bad Religion, NOFX, Pennywise, Yellowcard, Simple Plan and Frenzal Rhomb amongst the 26 (or 33 on the Deluxe edition) acts covering his songs.
X-Factor Australia screened their Grand Finale on Monday night, with Dami Im scoring the win, and her single “Alive” was instantly released after the show and has been sitting at No.1 for most of the week, meaning she could land at the top spot this coming weekend.
Also Dami could debut with her renditions of The Dreamgirls track “And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going”, a return for her first big entry “Purple Rain” (maybe both within the Top 20) and her initial audition song, Mariah Carey’s “Hero” (Top 30-40). Runner-up Taylor Henderson could land a couple of debuts too, as his versions of “Some Nights” by Fun and the Damien Rice track “The Blowers Daughter” could land within the Top 30, whilst third placed Jai Waetford could score an entry with his rendition of “Don’t Let Me Go” within the thirty to forty region of the chart.
The XF GF also saw appearances by Katy Perry and Fall Out Boy, and with Dami on track for the No.1 spot, she could knock “Roar” off the top spot, with Katy possibly scoring a Top 10 debut with her new single “Unconditionally”, as she performed both song on the show, and with Fall Out Boy touring at the moment, they sang “Alone Together” which could land within the Top 20 this coming weekend.
It’s going to be very crowded at the top of the charts this week, as there could be as many as six Top 10 debuts, which include Guy Sebastian and his new track “Like a Drum”, current tourists One Direction and their new single “Story of My Life”, and the new track from Eminem’s November 5th due “The Marshall Mathers 2 LP” entitled “The Monster” which features Rihanna as guest vocalist.
Possibly retaining their Top 10 status could be Pitbull & Ke$ha, Avicii, Nathaniel and they could be joined by Justice Crew with their new track “Everybody”. Redfoo could rebound with “Let’s Get Ridiculous”, as too could Vance Joy with “Riptide”, as it’s now being used in the Medibank TV commercials.
Last week Lady GaGa entered with “Do What U Want” featuring R.Kelly, and this week she has a new track out entitled “Venus” which could debut within the Top 30, and we could see a Top 40 return for the 1988 track by INXS “Never Tear us Apart” (HP-14, peaked early Oct), as the ads for the 2014 TV movie about the group started screening this past week.
Taylor Swift has a new song from the Paul Potts film “One Chance” entitled “Sweeter Than Fiction” which could debut within the Top 50 this coming weekend, as too could this weeks Justin Bieber track “Recovery”, whilst Imagine Dragons should climb with their new song “Demons”. Jai did a great version of Paramore’s “The Only Exception” on the X-Factor final, and the original could return to the charts again this week (Top 80), as too could Lou Reed’s “Walk on the Wild Side” (HP-100, April 1973), as the musician passed away this week, meaning if it enters at all it should beat it’s original peak and one week entry from April 1973.
