Something new and something old looking to stop the run by rock legends.

Shawn Mendes and Michael Bublé aim for AC/DC’s #1 on this week’s ARIA Charts

On last week’s ARIA Charts, AC/DC made it three weeks at #1 on the Albums Chart with PWR/UP and 24kGoldn hit his eighth week at #1 on the Singles Chart with 'Mood'.

Who could we see making an impact on the charts this week?


Canadian singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes will be aiming for his second straight #1 as he releases fourth album, Wonder.

Captured during their tour in support of Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino (#1 May ’18), Arctic Monkeys release their first ever live album, Live At The Royal Albert Hall.

The Hilltop Hoods release The Great Expanse (Instrumental Edition), the fourth and final album in their vinyl-only series.

British rocker Yungblud will be looking to make his Top 50 debut with second album, Weird!

American indie veterans The Mountain Goats could make their first ever appearance on the chart thanks to the release of live collection, The Jordan Lake Sessions: Volumes 1 And 2.

The iconic Dolly Parton releases A Holly Dolly Christmas, her third festive season album.

Look out for moves up the chart this week by Michael Bublé’s Christmas, The Kid Laroi’s F*ck Love (Savage) and Mariah Carey’s Merry Christmas, among others.


The Kid Laroi could round out 2020 with a sixth Top 50 entry with ‘Without You’.

Lil Nas X could make his first appearance in the Top 50 in over a year as he releases the Christmas song ‘Holiday’.

This week’s chart could be set to see moves by Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’, The Weeknd’s ‘Blinding Lights’, Tones and I’s ‘Fly Away’, CJ's ‘Whoopty’ and Wham’s ‘Last Christmas’.
