Midweek Chart: Keith Urban Set To Debut With Top Album

Keith Urban should have the number one album this week with ‘Fuse’ and after X-Factor contestant Dami Im performed “Roar” by Katy Perry this past week, it could help Katy back to the top spot, and give Dami a Top 30 debut with her rendition.

But the current top three selling tracks in the country have a close margin between them, with last weeks No.1 entrant Redfoo and his song “Let’s Get Ridiculous” contending with Miley Cyrus and her “Wrecking Ball”, which if it doesn’t go to No.1 will most likely be No.2 for the week. John Newman could climb from his holding position of No.6 with “Love Me Again” and retaining their Top 10 status could be Jason DeRulo, the new OneRepublic song and Lana Del Rey with “Summertime Sadness”.

We could also have several new Top 10 entries this week, with Drake climbing up with “Hold On, We’re Going Home” and possible debuts from X-Factor guest Kodaline and their track “High Hopes”, and the new Britney Spears track “Work B**ch” could also land within the ten this week, whilst landing just outside could be the new tracks from Katy Perry with “Dark Horse” and the brand new song from Lorde entitled “Team”.

A.G.T. judge Timomatic could see his second entry for the year debut within the Top 30 this week, as “Waterfalls” looks set to enter the charts, whilst an X-Factor performance of the Demi Lovato track “Skyscraper” (HP-45, Aug 2011) could see the song crack the Top 40, thus giving it a higher peak than first time around, whilst another XF performance could boost Passenger and “Let Her Go” (TW-52) back into the Top 40 too. Bruno Mars should climb with his song “Gorilla” (Top 40, TW-47), and Rudimental could return to the Top 100 and into the Top 40 with “Right Here” featuring Foxes.

The new dance floor anthem from Havana Brown, “Ba*Bing”, along with James Blunt and “Bonfire Heart” (TW-82), Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “White Walls” and from the new Avicii album “True”, the track “Hey Brother” could all land within the 40 to 50 region of the chart this week.

Lower 50: Clocking up over 34.3 million views on YouTube (at the time of writing this) is Norwegian act Ylvis and his track “The Fox”, which could debut within the Top 60 this week. The TV series ‘Winners & Losers’ are doing a double-episode series ending next week, and promo’s include the 1927 single “If I Could” (HP-4, Dec 1988) (Top 70) and a version sung by cast member Melanie Vallejo (Sophie) is available also. Klangkarussell (Clang Carousel) featuring Will Heard could enter with their track “Sonnentanz (Sun Don’t Shine)” as too should “Lolly” by Maejor Ali featuring Juicy J & Justin Bieber (Top 80), whilst there might also be an entry for Linkin Park & Steve Aoki with “A Light That Never Comes”.

ALBUMS: It’s a three way tussle for the No.1 spot on the Australian album charts this week, as new albums from Keith Urban “Fuse”, Avicii “True” and Jack Johnson with “From Here to Now to You” are all vying for the top spot, and all three acts have previous No.1 experience here.

Last weeks No.1 of “AM” for The Arctic Monkeys along with London Grammar’s No.2 debut for “If You Wait” could be joined by X-Factor guests Kodaline with their current album “In a Perfect World”, whilst OneRepublic and Imagine Dragons should retain their Top 10 status and possibly be joined by the former No.2 album “Home” by Rudimental.

New Zealand’s The Naked & Famous could see their second album “In Rolling Waves” debut within the Top 20, possibly beating the Top 30 peak of their debut set “Passive Me, Aggressive You” (HP-25, peaked Feb 2011), whilst Placebo could debut within the Top 30 with their new set “Loud Like Love”. And US artist Bill Callahan could see his album “Dream River” debut inside the Top 40 this week, and MMG could have their mixed album “Self Made Volume 3” land a Top 50 placing.

We could see in the lower half of the Top 100, new entries from Mantra and “Telling Scenes”, Janelle Monae and her album “The Electric Lady”, a return to electro-form for MGMT on their new self-titled album, and currently at No.3 (former No.1) on the UK Album charts with their self-titled album are The 1975.
