ARIA Chart Predictions: Human Nature, Jimmy Barnes and Ariana Grande do battle for #1
Aussie music veterans Human Nature and Jimmy Barnes still have what it takes to compete with the pop superstars of today.
Human Nature’s Romance Of The Jukebox and Barnes’ soundtrack album Working Class Boy will go up against pop queen Ariana Grande‘s Sweetener for the top debut on this week’s ARIA Albums Chart.
Both Human Nature and Barnes’ have storied histories on the chart. The former has four #1 albums in Australia, dating back to 1999’s sophomore album Counting Down.
Barnes record is even more impressive with 11 chart-topping releases, the most recent being 2016 studio album Soul Searchin’.
Grande’s two previous full-length albums both debuted at #1 in Australia (2014’s My Everything and 2016’s Dangerous Woman) as she attempts to keep her perfect record in tact.
No matter the outcome, the imminent debuts are likely to force Drake out of the top spot with Travis Scott and the Mama Mia soundtrack fighting to stay afloat in the Top 3.
