Some know Christmas is here because it’s December, others know because it’s starting to get super hot across Australia, but most know because Michael Bublé is storming back up the ARIA Albums chart.
While the Canadian crooner’s tenth studio album, Love, is the favourite to take out #1 on this week’s list, it’s his holiday LP, Christmas, which is starting to make it’s way up the chart as per usual this time every year since its release in 2011.
After charting at #78 two weeks ago and #30 last week, the album is now primed to land inside the top 20 this week and is well on its way to taking out top spot in the coming weeks for the eighth time.
Bublé recently appeared on The Graham Norton Show to discuss the feat; check it out below.
Other albums set to debut on the Albums chart this week include Mumford & Sons‘ Delta, The Greatest Showman: Reimagined soundtrack (both top five), Little Mix‘s LM5, Kip Moore‘s Room To Spare: The Acoustic Sessions (both top ten), Mariah Carey‘s Caution, Mark Knopfler‘s Down The Road Wherever (both top 15) and the Roy Orbison‘s Unchained Melodies: Roy Orbison & The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Chris Cornell compilation LP’s (both top 40).
Over on the Singles chart, Ariana Grande should be able to hold #1 for a second week with Thank U, Next, with the only track to debut on the list being Zara Larsson‘s Ruin My Life, predicted to land in the top 50.
