Can Lukas Graham hold their #1s?

Who’ll be #1 this week?

This week’s ARIA Charts saw Danish band Lukas Graham score a rare #1 double, notching up their eighth straight week at #1 on the Singles Chart with ‘7 Years’ and debuting at the top of the Albums Chart with Lukas Graham.

Can they do it again or will we see new #1s on this week’s ARIA Charts?

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


American alt-metal band Deftones will be hoping for a second top three appearance on the Albums Chart with eighth album Gore; after peaking at #7 with their self-titled debut, The Lumineers will be looking to debut higher with follow-up Cleopatra; singer-songwriter Ben Harper reunites with The Innocent Criminals for their first album since 2007 on Call It What It Is; twenty years on from his first solo album, American guitar hero Zakk Wylde has gone solo again with Book Of Shadows II; French electronic band M83 return with Junk, their first album in five years; Scottish indie band Frightened Rabbit could snare their first top 50 appearance thanks to fifth album Painting Of A Panic Attack.

Titles that could make a move up the chart this week include Blurryface by Twenty One Pilots, Essential Michael Jackson, The Very Best Of Fleetwood Mac, Meghan Trainor’s Title and Halsey’s Badlands.


While there should be some movement on the Singles Chart this week, it doesn’t look like there’ll be much in the way of debuts. After debuting at #43 last week with ‘One Dance’, Drake could pick up another Singles Chart entry with ‘Pop Style’. American rapper Desiigner could make his debut with ‘Panda’.

Among the singles on the move up the chart this week, look out for Gnash and Olivia O'Brien’s ‘I Hate U, I Love U’, Disturbed’s ‘The Sound Of Silence’, Drake’s ‘One Dance’, Tinie Tempah’s ‘Girls Like’ and Dua Lipa’s ‘Be The One’.

The weekly ARIA Charts announcement happens every Saturday at 6pm.
