Can Keith Urban and Drake hold the #1s for another week?

May 25, 2016

This week's contenders include Ariana Grande, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan and Adele.

For the second straight week, last week’s ARIA Charts saw Keith Urban top the Albums Chart with Ripcord and Drake take out the top spot on the Singles Chart with ‘One Dance’.

Will this week see another repeat or will we see new #1s at the top of the ARIA Charts?

Let’s take a look at some of this week’s contenders.


Ariana Grande will be aiming for her second #1 on the Albums Chart with third album Dangerous Woman; Eric Clapton returns with twenty-third solo studio album I Still Do; in the week of his 75th birthday, the legendary Bob Dylan releases his thirty-seventh album, Fallen Angels; American country artist Blake Shelton could pick up his third top 50 appearance thanks to tenth studio album If I'm Honest; Norwegian band Highasakite hope to make their first top 50 appearance with third album Camp Echo; after debuting at #50 with their self-titled debut, American band Issues could chart higher with second album Headspace; with their third album, Along The Shadow, post-hardcore band Saosin could chart in the top 50 for the first time; American trio Against The Current could debut with first album In Our Bones.

Titles that could move back up the chart this week include Prince’s The Very Best Of, Dami Im’s Classic Carpenters, Coldplay’s A Head Full Of Dreams and Kate Ceberano’s Anthology.


Adele releases the third single from #1 album 25, ‘Send My Love (To Your New Lover)’; Gympie’s The Amity Affliction release the first single from their forthcoming fifth album, ‘I Bring The Weather With Me’.
