Quantcast
In the wonderful world of Post Modern, watch out for the hot new Sum 41, "Still Waiting" (Island), which should edge out Crazy Town’s "Drowning" (Columbia) for the Most Added nod.

WEEK IN PREVIEW: LONG LIVE ELVIS

King Rules, Holds New Jersey Pretenders to His Crown at Bay
This just in: Elvis is still king. That’s right, it looks like ELV1S 30 #1 Hits (RCA) will top the chart for a third week in a row. Indeed, the Monday betting for this Columbus Day has the Elv-man coming in at just over 200k for the week, with Island’s Bon Jovi coming in right behind at just under 200k.

Hitting the streets tomorrow is Faith Hill’s Cry (Warner Bros.) as well as albums from Dave Hollister (Motown/Universal), Gerald Levert (Elektra), LL Cool J (Def Jam) and Tracy Chapman (Elektra). Should be a fun week. But then again, aren’t they all?

At Top 40 radio, word is that "My Culture," featuring Robbie Wiliams and Maxi Jazz, from the 1 Giant Leap project (Palm/Reprise), will join Shaggy’s "Strength of a Woman" in attempting to wedge into a very crowded field, which will only get more crowded next week, when Big Tymers, Kylie Minogue and Red Hot Chili Peppers also go for adds.

In the wonderful world of Post Modern, watch out for the hot new Sum 41, "Still Waiting" (Island), which should edge out Crazy Town’s "Drowning" (Columbia) for the Most Added nod.

At Crossover, look out for Busta Rhymes’ "Make It Clap" on J Records, which should come out ahead of Mariah Carey’s "Through the Rain" (Island) and 3LW’s "Neva Get Enuf" (Epic). Also look for cleanup on Craig David’s "What’s Your Flava?" (Wildstar/Atlantic).
