Quantcast
On the radio, expect Jennifer Love-Hewitt’s "Barenaked" (Jive) to take most-added honors at Top 40, followed closely by Eminem’s "Cleanin’ Out My Closet" (Aftermath-Interscope) Irv Gotti Presents’ "Down 4 U" (Murder Inc./IDJ) and Amy Studt’s "Just a Little Girl" (Universal).

WEEK IN PREVIEW:
KOWBOY KEITH KOMES IN FIRST

The "Angry American" to Best Now 10, Nelly, DMB, Eminem
Wheeeee-dogggggies! We’s gessin’ that there patriotic fervor ain’t died out quite yet, a-judgin’ from the chart preview whomped up by our retail sawbones. That’s right: Toby Keith, the author of that pissed-off America-as-global ass-kicker ditty "Courtesy of the Red, White & Blue," is set to land at #1 this week with sales of well over 300k (possibly as much as 350k) for his new album, Unleashed (DreamWorks).

And while Keith’s in the saddle for #1, the race for #2 is still a tossup, with Now 10 (Epic) and Nellyville (Fo’ Reel/Universal) vying to place with sales of each approaching the 300k mark.

Also look for big chart debuts from Lil Wayne at over 100k and Mario, TRUSTcompany and Boys II Men at just under 100k. All will land in the Top 10.

On the radio, meanwhile, expect Jennifer Love-Hewitt’s "Barenaked" (Jive) to take most-added honors at Top 40, followed closely by Eminem’s "Cleanin’ Out My Closet" (Aftermath/Interscope) Irv Gotti Presents’ "Down 4 U" (Murder Inc./IDJ) and Amy Studt’s "Just a Little Girl" (Universal).

At Crossover, Musiq’s "Don’t Change" (IDJ) appears likely to be the most-added track, leading Brandy’s "He Is" (Atlantic) and Isyss’ "Single for the Rest of My Life" (Arista).

And at Post Modern, expect OK Go to do just that with "Get Over It" (Capitol), fast becoming the feel-good smash of the summer. Meanwhile Eminem’s "Cleanin’..." (Aftermath/Interscope) and Puddle of Mudd’s "She Hates Me" (Flawless/Geffen) should have strong add weeks as well.
