And set for a top five finish on the Singles Chart, too.

Their last three album releases have peaked at #1 and hip hop trio Hilltop Hoods are aiming to keep that incredibly impressive streak alive with their latest offering, Drinking From the Sun, Walking Under Stars Restrung, which is set to crack the top three on the ARIA Albums Chart this week and challenge for top spot. 

The album, made up of remixed and restructured recordings from previous albums Walking Under Stars and Drinking From The Sun, is likely to contend for the week's highest honours against Adele and the Molly soundtrack, which has taken out the #1 spot two weeks running.

After taking out the #1 a few weeks back, Adelaide pop star Sia's latest, This Is Acting is also set for a return back into the top five.

On the Singles Chart, Melbourne songwriter Missy Higgins will look for a top 40 debut with Oh Canada, alongside James Yammouni x In Stereo's Honest and The 1975's Somebody Else.

Meanwhile, Hilltop Hoods could cap off a huge week if they are to claim a #1 album debut, as their track, 1955 featuring Montaigne and Tom Thum, is a contender for the top five or higher on the chart.
