It's going to be a close one.

More Boy & Bear More Boy & Bear

Sydney indie-rock band Boy & Bear are in with a shot at scoring their second career #1 album debut with Limit Of Love, but this week's ARIA Albums Chart looks to be a five-way battle for top spot.

Also looking to take out the week's highest debut is US pop singer Selena Gomez with her second offering Revival and Bluesfest act City & Colour's If I Should Go Before You, while last week's top two placings of triple j and Aussie legends Cold Chisel are also aiming to retain their spot in the top three. 

Boy & Bear's 2013 album Harlequin Dream debuted at #1, while their debut record Moonfire debuted at #2 back in 2011, so the quintet will no doubt have their eye on another top end finish.

Meanwhile on the Singles Chart, current X Factor contestant Cyrus Villanueva is set to crack the top five with his performance of Chris Isaak's Wicked Game, while you can also expect to hear new tracks from Brisbane songwriter Conrad Sewell with Who You Lovin and the latest tune from The 1975Love Me.
