Quantcast
Lisa Marie Presley’s To Whom It May Concern (Capitol) is exceeding expectations with a first week now projected at over 140k, and Ginuwine’s The Senior (Epic) appears headed for a first week of 130k.
WEEK IN PREVIEW:
’SMACK OUR CHART UP
Godsmack Rules from On High, as Lisa Marie, Ginuwine Join In
Another week, another alt-metal band at #1. Yes, folks, as the tallying of reports continues, Godsmack’s Faceless (Universal) is on track to land at #1 on this week’s Album Chart, with a first-week tally of over 250k.

That’s a lot of metal in your face. Hey, take it easy—we’re not talking about your daughter’s braces. Those are very attractive.

Other hot debuts on the upcoming chart will include Lisa Marie Presley’s To Whom It May Concern (Capitol), which is exceeding expectations with a first week now projected at north of 140k, and Ginuwine’s The Senior (Epic), which appears headed for a first week of 130k.

Meanwhile, last week’s #1 ablum, Linkin Park’s Meteora (Warner Bros.), is expected to log another 170k in sales for the week, easily keeping it in the Top Five.

As for tomorrow, expect it to be all about Shady/Aftermath/Interscope rapper 50 Cent once again, when his new "hybrid" DVD-plus-CD package, The New Breed, becomes available for purchase. The new set of discs is being stocked in retailers’ music sections, so dammit, we’re treating it like a record and will track it on next week’s Album Chart, where it will likely land at #1. Interscope has shipped over a million units—if you haven’t read up on this project already, find out all about it here.

As for radio, those with the best chances for garnering the most adds, according to our crack(ed) staff of format specific observers, include:

Top 40: Kelly Clarkson’s "Miss Independent" (RCA), Simple Plan’s "Addicted" (Lava) and Third Eye Blind’s "Blinded" (Elektra) are expected to be strongest out of the gate, while both Jewel’s "Intuition" (Atlantic) and J.Lo’s "I’m Glad" (Epic) should continue to put up big numbers. Also look for more cleanup on Bust Rhymes f/Mariah Carey’s "I Know What You Want" (J Records) and Jason Mraz’s "The Remedy" (Elektra).

Crossover: Keep eyes peeled for action on Field Mob’s "All I Have" (MCA), Foxy Brown’s "I Need a Man" (Def Jam), and Chingy’s "Right Thurr" (Priority/Capitol), as well as Playa’s "Never Too Late" (Blackground/Universal).

Post Modern/Rock: It’s all about P.O.D.’s "Sleeping Awake" from the Matrix 2 soundtrack (Maverick/Reprise).
