A PEEK AT NEXT WEEK

Taylor Swift All But Assured A Third Week at #1; Foo Fighters Set to Be Biggest Bow
Based on early, early sales, it appears that Foo Fighters (Roswell/RCA) will score the week’s top debut at about 200k. 

Pink Floyd (Columbia) and Garth Brooks (Pearl/RCA Nashville) are on a collision course for the runner-up debut slot, with each trending in the 120-140k range.

These numbers all but assure that Taylor Swift will spend a third week at #1. Her previous album, Red, experienced a third-week decay of 43% which, if 1989 follows a similar trend, suggests a total somewhere around 225k.

These very early numbers are naturally subject to change; stay tuned.
