Forum - General: Music/Charts related - Most successful weeks for debuts

I have no idea if this will be a success or a flop but here goes. I've been thinking about something lately and I have a question for those with charts on this site.

What are the most successful weeks for debuts on your chart? So for example, has there been a week where two songs that went on to become #1s debuted? Or maybe a #1 and numerous top 5 hits? Would love to see what other people have had on their charts when it comes to these stats.

I'll post some of my examples in a bit
Here's two of my biggest:

10th September 2016

My Puppet Heart - Sophie Ellis-Bextor [#3 x3, #21 EOY]
Weekend - Louis The Child & Icona Pop [#2 x2, #24 EOY]
Never Ever - Röyksopp featuring Susanne Sundfør [#5 x2, #27 EOY]
Unrequited - Sophie Ellis-Bextor [#5, #37 EOY]

Haven't got the time to check my charts right now, but the thread does make me think of two vaguely related things, firstly that in 1991 all on the same day, we had the release of "Nevermind", "Blood Sugar Sex Magik" and "The Low End Theory", which has got to be one of the biggest in terms of enduring albums.

On a similar note, a thing I noticed recently is that in 2011, we had a week where Coldplay released a new album, which was obviously the big event of the week, but at the same time, two other albums casually entered the top 50 together. They were the lowest entries of the week, but have perhaps gone on to do quite well http://australian-charts.com/weekchart.asp?year=2011&date=20111106&cat=a
Yeah I haven't had a chance to look at my charts stats yet, but it would be pretty safe to say the weeks where a massive album was released for me (Tamar, Mauboy, Demi) would be my biggest debut weeks... in particular the week I discovered Tamar's music and almost every damn song from her Love And War album went top 10 on my chart (off the top of my head I know White Candle (#1), Pieces (#1), Thank You Lord (#2), Prettiest Girl (#2), The One (#3), Sound of Love (#2), Love and War (#4) and Where It Hurts (#2) all went top 5, and furthermore Hot Sugar (#8) went top 10).

There was also the week she released Calling All Lovers which I know had seven debuts that all eventually went top 10, as well as Angels & Demons (#1), If I Don't Have You (#1) and Catfish (#2) which had all debuted prior to the week of the album being released. The weeks of Jessica Mauboy's Get 'Em Girls and Beautiful and Demi Lovato's Demi, Unbroken and Tell Me You Love Me (if I still did top 25's) albums would've been big debut wise too.
This week in 2006 would be one of my more successful in terms of EOY performance:
Sam's Top 50 - 2 July 2006, Week 27
BTWLWTitle - ArtistPeakEOY
*1NEWAfterglow - INXS#1#6
*5NEWThat Old Pair Of Jeans - Fatboy Slim#1#3
*6NEWWoman - Wolfmother#3#10
*17NEWUnfaithful - Rihanna#12 
*18NEWRough Gems - Islands#6 
*19NEWThe Hardest Part - Coldplay#6#24
*20NEWWhat's Left Of Me - Nick Lachey#7 
*25NEWSupermassive Black Hole - Muse#5#13
*37NEWSin Sin Sin - Robbie Williams#10#46
*38NEWOne Crowded Hour - Augie March#15 
*50NEWJCB Song - Nizlopi#29 

I think there may be a couple of others that were similar, but 3 x top 10 EOY songs in one week is a pretty good haul.

I had one week in 2006 where 12 of my top 15 were debuts, and a week in 2003 where 8 of the top 10 were debuts, but not overall as 'successful' as the above.

Edit: This week is probably similar in terms of debuts, but it's also perhaps the strongest top 10 I've ever had as 9/10 peaked at #1 and all made my top 50 of 2013.
