NEW RELEASES: THE FUTURE OF FUTURE

Epic's Future, whose voice you may have noticed in a cool Beats by Dre Super Bowl spot, leads the pack of new releases and looks headed or #1 on Friday's HITS album sales and SPS charts. It's a nice look for L.A. Reid and team going into Grammy week. Here's the state of play.

Future (Epic) 110-115k album, 145-150k SPS
Elton John (Island) 58-63k, 60-65k
Now 57 (NOW/Legacy) 58-63k
Wiz Khalifa (WMG) 45-50k, 55-60k
Elevation Worship (Essential) 20-23k, 21-24k
Young Thug (WMG) 14-16k, 17-20k
Charles Kelley (Capitol Nashville) 12-14k, 13-15k
Now Power Ballads (NOW/Legacy) 9-11k

Rihanna, who debuted digitally last week, has delivered physical product, and looks to move some 40-45k albums and 65-70k SPS.
