The August doldrums are officially here, based on one-day sales figures from our sweat-soaked legion of retail reporters across the country and on your smart phone.

Trey Songz’ fifth Atlantic album, Chapter V, will easily take the #1 spot on next week's chart as the only title that will hit six figures, with a first-week total that should reach 125-130k. His last album, 2010’s Passion, Pain & Pleasure, debuted with 240k in sales on the way to a total of 842k to date.

Cash Money/Republic rapper DJ Khaled’s Kiss the Ring, the follow-up to last year’s We the Best Forever, is on target for 35-40k as the second-highest debut of the week.

Republic singer/songwriter Adam Young aka Owl City’s third album, The Midsummer Station, which includes “Good Time,” his hit single with Carly Rae Jepsen, is up next with a target of 25-30k

Reunion/Provident contemporary Christian band Tenth Avenue North’s The Struggle also looks in the 25-30k range.

Jason Aldean’s Broken Bow labelmate Dustin Lynch’s self-titled debut should do between 20-25k.
