You know Christmas is drawing near when you start hearing those dulcet tones of Mariah Carey’s 1994 hit, All I Want For Christmas Is You.
Last year, Carey finally hit the #1 spot on the ARIA Singles Chart with the track after it peaked at #2 on debut in the ’90s and now, just days into December, it’s looking likely that the track is going to have another successful year on the chart.
According to mid-week figures, All I Want For Christmas Is You is likely to land within this week’s top 20, moving up from #68 last week.
It could be a big week all round for Carey though, with her 1994 album Merry Christmas looking to end up in the ARIA Albums Chart top 20 from #36.
Looking at the overall Singles Chart, The Weeknd is looking at two debuts this week with Heartless expected in the top 10 and Blinding Lights in top 20.
Dua Lipa‘s Don’t Start Now is likely for the top 5, while Wham!‘s Last Christmas and Michael Buble‘s It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas are aiming for top 40 and 50 respectively.
Jimmy Barnes‘ live album My Criminal Record/Modus Operandi is likely to debut in the top 40 on the Albums Chart, as is Pink Floyd‘s The Later Years 1987-2019. The Game‘s Born 2 Rap is aiming for top 50.
Robbie Williams‘ The Christmas Present should stay in the top 5 after debuting at #2 last week. The Frozen 2 soundtrack is expected to jump into the top 5 along with Tones & I’s The Kids Are Coming EP.
Human Nature could pick up both a top 10 and 20 with Still Telling Everybody: 30 Years Of Hits and The Christmas Album.
Buble’s Christmas is looking at top 10, while The Teskey Brother‘s Half Mile Harvest is expected for top 30 and John Farnham & Olivia Newton-John‘s Friends For Christmas and Hilltop Hoods‘ The Great Expanse are likely for top 40.
