The impact of Black Friday and Cyber Monday on sales is still being tabulated.

ONE-DAY SALES:
"FIRE" AND TINSEL

Will Keys Rule Retail's Kingdom, or Will Rod Sneak Under the Market Mistleoe First?
If we're reading the tea leaves correctly, Alicia Keys' new RCA set, Girl on Fire, should land at #1 next week, shifting somewhere between 150k and 175k units.

If, on the other hand, these aren't tea leaves at all but the unspeakable remains of Trakin's lunch from last Tuesday, we could be looking at a post-Black Friday surge that lands Rod Stewart's Merry Christmas, Baby (Verve) at the top of the tree.

As you may have guessed, the impact of  Black Friday and Cyber Monday on sales is still being reckoned with; this lends a giddy, cinnamon-scented air of unpredictability to the whole enterprise. Or maybe we're feeilng this way because we started drinking eggnog at about 9:30am. Didn't you? Bottoms up, buddy!

Other key debuts of the week are electro-popsters Timeflies, whose self-released One Night EP (now spreading its wings at #2 on the iTunes chart, trailing only Keys) should buzz up 25-30k, and Columbia's Season 4 Glee set, which is expected to move 18-22k.
