A long time coming.

She is set to be inducted into the prestigious ARIA Hall Of Fame this month and in what will cap off an incredible 2015 for Tina Arena, the Australian singer is on the verge of scoring her first #1 album debut in almost 20 years with her new record, Eleven.

The 48-year-old songwriter is well on her way to crack the top three of the ARIA Albums Chart and if she is to clinch top spot, it will mark her third #1 album and her first since 1997's In Deep.

Meanwhile, it seems Arena's biggest threat is an artist who hasn't been alive in almost 40 years — iconic US singer Elvis Presley.

The archival vocal recordings album, If I Can Dream: Elvis Presley With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra which features duets with Michael Buble and II Volo, is also aiming for a top three finish.
