On this week’s ARIA Charts, Zayn picked up his first solo #1 album with Mind Of Mine, while on the Singles Chart Lukas Graham made it seven weeks in a row at #1 with 7 Years.

Let’s take a look at this week’s chart contenders.


Having topped the Singles Chart for seven straight weeks, Danes Lukas Graham will be hoping for a big debut with their self-titled album; Arctic Monkey Alex Turner returns to his other band The Last Shadow Puppets for their first album in eight years, Everything You've Come To Expect; Japanese metal pop act Babymetal could be set to make their ARIA Charts debut with second album Metal Resistance; electro pop legends Pet Shop Boys return with their thirteenth album Super; 2015 X Factor contestants In Stereo hope to hit the chart with debut album She's Rock N Roll; American indie rock legends Weezer will be looking for their eighth top 50 appearance with tenth album Weezer (White Album); after charting for the first time in ten years last year with It's The Girls, Bette Midler could chart this week with the new ballad-focused compilation A Gift Of Love.

Expect jumps up the chart this week from Disturbed’s Immortalized, Jon English’s Six Ribbons - The Ultimate Collection, Elton John’s Rocket Man: The Definitive Hits and Little Mix’s Get Weird.


Kiwi duo Broods could pick up their first top 50 appearance thanks to new single ‘Free’; after charting as featured artists on Peking Duk’s ‘Take Me Over’ (#6 Dec. ’14), fellow Canberrans Safia could pick up their first top 50 entry in their own right with ‘Make Them Wheels Roll’.
