ARIA Charts: Jonas Brothers jostle with Avicii’s posthumous album
The first album release in over a decade by US trio Jonas Brothers looks to be in contention for #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart this week.
According to mid-week data, their record Happiness Begins is battling a posthumous release by EDM producer Avicii, whose record TIM was first heard via exclusive Cube installations in six countries earlier this month.
Avicii has a strong pedigree on the chart, with albums True (2013) and Stories (2015) both peaking in the Top 10.
True has been his strongest performer, reaching the top spot and spending a total of 48 weeks on the chart in 2013.
Jonas Brothers’ highest peak on the Albums Chart was 2009’s Lines, Vines And Trying Times, which reached the #5 spot over a decade ago.
On the home front, Meg Mac looks set for a Top 10 debut with her new EP Hope.
