Midweek Chart: Jay-Z Looks Good For No 1 Album

After taking only three weeks to bullet to the top of the Australian charts last week, Avicii and Aloe Blacc seem set to maintain the No.1 position in the country with “Wake Me Up” this coming week, whilst former chart-toppers OneRepublic could sneak up to No.2 with “Counting Stars”, and Robin Thicke is still hanging around the top three with “Blurred Lines”.

Miley Cyrus looks set for her highest charting single in Australia, as “We Can’t Stop” could possibly climb to No.4 (her previous best chart effort was “The Climb” {HP-5}). Imagine Dragons look set to climb as well with “Radioactive”, maybe even into the Top 5, whilst Pink and Lily Allen should join the Top 10 this week with “True Love” thanks to Pink’s current national tour.

Lorde has been picking up radio and TV airplay around the country, and her EP “The Love Club” featuring the track “Royals” could help propel the New Zealand 16 year old into our Top 20 this week, whilst her new single “Tennis Court” should maintain its Top 40 status too. Also climbing with an EP are Sheppard and their self-titled set which contains “Let Me down Easy”, which cracked the Top 20 last week and could go higher, whilst Vance Joy and his track “Riptide” and Naughty Boy and their track “La La La” could both leap into the Top 20 this week.

Also expected to climb are MKTO with “Classic” (LW-34), the new UK No.1 single “Love Me Again” by John Newman and “Clarity” by Zedd featuring Foxes. We could see a return to the Top 100 for Will.i.am and Miley Cyrus (HP-47, May 2013) on his track “Fall Down” which initially charted when Will’s album “#Willpower” came out. This track could debut within the Top 30, as too could another teaming, this time with Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake on “Holy Grail” taken from Jay-Z’s new album “Magna Carta… Holy Grail”.

Bliss N’ Eso could see last weeks No.78 ARIA Chart entry for “Act Your Age” leap into the Top 50 this coming week, whilst Birds of Tokyo’s “When the Night Falls Quiet” and The Arctic Monkeys with “Do I Wanna Know?” should maintain their Top 50 (or even higher) status this week. Ellie Goulding has a new track entitled “Burn” which looks set for a low Top 50 debut, whilst GroupLove are close to cracking the fifty with “Ways to Go” (LW-74).

Lower new entries could possibly come from Justin Timberlake with “Tunnel Vision”, a return for Jessica Mauboy’s “Something’s Gold a Hold on Me” (HP-26, March 2013), a big climb for Martin Solveig with “Hey Now”, The Collective have their new track “Another Life”, “Gun” for Chvrches and possibly Ciara with Nicki Minaj on “I’m Out”.

Jay-Z looks set to debut at No.1 with his twelfth studio album “Magna Carta… Holy Grail” which features guest such as Justin Timberlake, Rick Ross, Frank Ocean and his wife Beyonce. But the album came out for sale on Tuesday the 8th, so hopefully like Kanye three weeks ago; it too can sell enough in three days to make it to the top of the Australian Albums chart.

Pink is set to see two albums in the Top 10 this week, as her current No.4 album “The Truth about Love” maintains its chart height, but could be joined by her “Greatest Hits… So Far” this album has not been inside the Top 10 since the end of March 2011. Also possibly landing a Top 10 debut this week with his fourth album is Josh Pyke and “The Beginning and the End of Everything”.

Imagine Dragons cracked the Top 20 last week with “Night Visions” which could climb higher this coming week, and there’s a potential Top 30 debut for Whitley and “Even the Stars are a Mess”. Other new Top 50 entries could come from Bastille and their low reigning album (HP so far #65) “Bad Blood”, and most of Pink’s back catalogue could return to the Top 50 this week, as “Funhouse”, “M!ssundaztood”, “Can’t Take Me Home”, “Try This” and “I’m Not Dead” are all selling well at the moment. Lower fifty entries could come from “Glass Towers” for Halcyon Days, “The Weight of Your Love” for The Editors, the “Offspring-Volume 4” TV Soundtrack, and Ciara’s new self-titled album.
