With two version of “The Great Gatsby” soundtrack available (regular and deluxe editions), it could possibly climb to the top of the albums chart, or maybe No.2. And with the film opening this Thursday (30-May) the soundtrack will benefit from now on.

Laura Marling releases her fourth album “Once I Was an Eagle” this week, and her last two albums reached the Top 10 and Top 20 respectively, so she could land a second Top 10 this week. Known chart winners are the “Fast & Furious” soundtracks (#1 HP-33 Oct 2001, #2 HP-25 June 2003, #3 HP-77 June 2006, #4 HP-37 April 2009, and #5 HP-39 May 2011) and sixth in the series could land within the Top 20 this week.

Alice in Chains could chart with “The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here”, and Armin van Buuren could return with his “Intense” album now that the single from the album is climbing so fast. Jamie Cullum has just released his latest album “Momentum” and there is potential for Dialectrix with “The Cold Light of Day” and Jake Bugg’s self-titled albums to crack the Top 100 this coming week.

June starts this weekend, and Robin Thicke could be spending his fourth consecutive week at the top of the Australian charts with “Blurred Lines” featuring T.I. and Pharrell.

Mr. Williams also potentially still within the top three as guest vocalist on the Daft Punk track “Get Lucky”. We could also see Passenger remain within the Top 5 with “Let Her Go” and Top 10 potentials come from Bastille with “Pompeii”, Rudimental’s “Waiting All Night” and Matt Corby could leap into the Top 10 with his new track “Resolution” which debuted within the Top 40 last week after only a couple days of sales.

The Voice Season 2 again makes giant initial waves into the chart this week (they soon die away after the second week), with Harrison Craig potentially taking the highest new entry with his version of “It Had Better Be Tonight” (Michael Buble), whilst Luke Kennedy with “Freedom ‘90” (George Michael), Celia Pavey with “Edelweiss” (Sound of Music), Miss Murphy with “Killing Me Softly” (The Fugees version), Danny Ross with “Old Man” (Neil Young), Jackie Sannia with “Smoke” (Natalie Imbruglia), Mitchell Anderson with “What Becomes of the Broken Hearted” (Jimmy Ruffin), Kiyomi Vella with “Young Blood” (The Naked & Famous) and Steve Clisby with “New York State of Mind” (Billy Joel) could all reach either the Top 10 or Top 20 this coming week.

Armin van Buuren keeps jumping up the charts with his new track “This is What it Feels Like” featuring Trevor Guthrie, possibly landing Top 20 this week, also moving up could be Imagine Dragons with “Radioactive”. Lana Del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful possibly could land in the Top 30 this week, and also from “The Great Gatsby” soundtrack we could see a debut from Fergie, Q-Tip and GoonRock with “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)”. ‘Fast & Furious 6’ opens here soon, and from that soundtrack we could see 2 Chainz & Wiz Khalifa debut with “We own it (Fast & Furious)”.

Also possible new stuff charting this week from Jessie J feat Big Sean with “Wild”, “Dear Darlin’ for Olly Murs, the returning Temper Trap and “Sweet Disposition” (via The Voice Season 2 performance), “Clarity” from Zedd feat Foxes, “Wing$” for Macklemore and Ryan Lewis and after his duet with Delta Goodrem this past week, Gurrumul and Sarah Blasko’s “Bayini” could possibly make the Top 100 this week, with his album “Gurrumul” possibly blasting back up into the Top 10 or Top 20 this week.
