ARIA Charts: Hillsong UNITED eye yet another Top 10 album debut

Hillsong UNITED are pushing for a Top 10 debut on the ARIA Charts this week with the Sydney worship group’s latest live album People.

UNITED have twice hit the albums summit in Australia with Zion (2013) and Empires (2015). Six of the band’s other albums have peaked in the Top 10 including previous release Wonder (#4).

Meantime, charts juggernaut P!NK is expected to notch another #1 album in Australia with Hurts 2B Human. The singer first reached the summit in 2006 with I’m Not Dead.

If Hurts 2B Human hits the top this week, it will be P!NK’s fifth consecutive studio album to debut at #1. The album’s title track is also on course for a Top 50 debut on the Singles Chart. 

Rob Thomas will also vye for the top spot this week with Chip Tooth Smile. 2005 debut album …Something To Be was certified triple Platinum and reached #1 in Australia.

With Matchbox Twenty, Thomas adds another five chart-toppers to his collection, including video album Show: A Night in the Life of Matchbox Twenty.

Unsurprisingly, Taylor Swift’s new single ‘ME!’ ft. Brendon Urie has shot out of the gates and will likely place in the Top 3 of the Singles Chart among singles from Lil Nas X and Billie Eilish.
