Who'll top this week's ARIA Charts?

April 12, 2017

Contenders include Harry Styles, The Chainsmokers, Tina Arena and more.

Last week, Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape Of You’ notched up its thirteenth consecutive week at #1, equalling the ARIA Charts record with Coolio’s ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’ for most weeks in the top spot. Sheeran’s ÷ also held #1 on the Albums Chart for a fifth straight week.

Can Ed Sheeran break the record for most weeks at #1 on the Singles Chart or will his run end? Can someone overthrow him from the Albums Chart?

Let’s check out some of the contenders.

ALBUMs

After scoring eight entries to date on the ARIA Albums Chart, The Chainsmokers could make their Albums Chart debut with Memories...Do Not Open; ARIA Hall Of Fame member Tina Arena compiles highlights of her career and puts a new spin on some of her classics on Tina Arena (Greatest Hits & Interpretations); Melbourne’s The Smith Street Band could hit the top ten for the first time with fourth album More Scared Of You Than You Are Of Me; a cappella group Pentatonix could be set for a second top ten on the ARIA Charts with EP PTX, Vol. 4; with their fourth studio album, Coming Home, Las Vegas rockers Falling In Reverse could be set for their second top ten; worship group Bethel Music could score their fourth top 50 entry in four years with Starlight (Live); American singer-songwriter Father John Misty could score a new ARIA Charts peak with third album Pure Comedy; rapper Joey Bada$$ could hit the top 50 for a second time with new album All-Amerikkkan Bada$$; hard rock icons Deep Purple release their twentieth studio album Infinite; Melbourne’s Deez Nuts could chart with fifth album Binge & Purgatory; vocal group The Ten Tenors could pick up a seventh top fifty entry with Wish You Were Here.

Albums that could make a move up this week’s chart include Taylor Swift’s 1989 and Shawn Mendes’ Illuminate.
