Who'll top this week's ARIA Charts?

December 4, 2019

ARIA winners and Christmas favourites making moves.

Coldplay claimed their sixth #1 on the Album Chart with Everyday Life last week, marking their first time at the summit since 2014. Meanwhile, the unstoppable Tones And I notched up an unprecedented 18th week atop the Singles Chart with ‘Dance Monkey’ after collecting four ARIA Awards.
 
Who will be vying for prime positions on the ARIA Charts this week? Let’s take a look at some of the possible debutants and movers.
 
Albums
 
Aussie icon Jimmy Barnes looks set for a Top 50 debut with double album My Criminal Record / Modus Operandi, which consists of his latest studio album and a live set recorded at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion; Legendary English rockers Pink Floyd could enter the chart for an 11th time with their retrospective collection The Later Years 1987-2019; and US rapper The Game may debut in the Top 50 with his ninth studio album Born 2 Rap.

Meanwhile Robbie Williams could hit #1 with The Christmas Present, which continues to climb in its second week on the Album Chart. With the festive season and last week's ARIA Awards at the forefront of the public consiousness, expect to see moves by Tones And I's The Kids Are Coming EP, Human Nature's Still Telling Everybody: 30 Years Of Hits, Michael Bublé's Christmas, Mariah Carey's Merry Christmas, The Teskey Brothers' Half Mile Harvest, John Farnham & Olivia Newton-John's Friends For Christmas, and Hilltop Hoods' The Great Expanse, as well as a big leap by the Frozen 2 soundtrack.
 
Singles
 
There aren’t a whole lot of new releases hitting the Singles Chart this week, but Canadian singer The Weeknd is set to make a double entry with ‘Heartless’ and ‘Blinding Lights’.
 
Dua Lipa’s ‘Don’t Start Now’ is likely to continue its rise, while perennial favourite ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ by Mariah Carey is steadily making its annual climb up the Top 50. Other Yuletide hits potentially returning to the chart this week are Wham!’s ‘Last Christmas’ and Michael Buble’s ‘It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas’. Deck the halls!
