Pun obviously intended.

The race to #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart looks to be a one-horse race this week as ex-One Direction member Zayn, (Zayn Malik) is likely to take out top honours with his debut solo album, Mind Of Mine.

The UK singer has already enjoyed immense success on the Australian charts, both with 1D, as well with the first single from the new record, Pillowtalk.

It seems the only threats to challenge for the #1 spot is Australian artist Matt Corby's own debut offering, Telluric, which dropped from top spot to #2 last week and UK metalcore outfit Asking Alexandria's The Black, set to crack the top five.

After clinching #1 last week Violent Soho are primed to retain a top ten spot with Waco, alongside Swedish death metal band Amon Amarth's new album, Jomsviking.
