In radio, word out of the Top 40 world is that Shania Twain’s "I’m Gonna Getcha Good" (Mercury Nashville) and Nelly’s "Air Force Ones" (Fo’ Real/Universal) should nab the most adds, while cleanup continues on Good Charlotte (Epic) and Christina Aguilera.

WEEK IN PREVIEW: SLIM’S PHATTTTT

8 Mile, Nirvana, Aguilera Sell, as Shania, Nelly Heat Up Radio
It’s on, fool. Yep, the big guns of the fourth quarter are firing in earnest, as evidenced by Eminem’s 8 Mile soundtrack (Shady/Interscope), which has been kicking major booty at the cash registers. As of this moment, the year’s second major Eminem release (he already has the best-selling album of the year in The Eminem Show) appears headed for a first week of around 700k.

Also stirring up sales are the new Nirvana compilation (featuring "You Know You’re Right) on Geffen and Christina Aguilera’s image-shifting Stripped (RCA). The kings of grunge look likely to make 250k for the week, while the Aguilera, which is still trending up, has a shot at hitting 350k.

At Crossover, look for Nelly, which officially impacts this week, to continue making noise even though last week’s early-believer action made him #3 Most Added. This week’s Most Added honors, however, should go to Ja Rule f/Bobby Brown, whose "Thug Lovin’" (Murder Inc./Def Jam) is all the rage, though there’s also big buzz on B2K f/P. Diddy, whose "Bump, Bump, Bump" also hits this week.

And in the wonderful world of Post Modern, look for System of a Down to shred all comers with "Inner Vision" (American/Columbia/CRG), as early action on Coldplay’s "Clocks" (Capitol) continues.
