Quantcast
Meanwhile, a battle for #3 is also brewing, with 311’s debuting Evolver (Volcano) going head-to-head with Beyoncé’s Dangerously in Love (Columbia). Each appears likely to come in at around 120k.
WEEK IN PREVIEW: NOW 13,
BAD BOYS II DUKE IT OUT
Pop Comp, Soundtrack Lead Pack of Albums Debuting at 100k or Better
As the numbers continue to be tallied, it’s still unclear whether UTV’s debuting Now 13 pop compilation or Bad Boy/Universal’s returning Bad Boys II soundtrack will end up on top of this week’s album chart.

What is clear, however, is that both albums are tracking very close to predictions that each would sell close to 200k for the week.

Meanwhile, a battle for #3 is also brewing, with 311’s debuting Evolver (Volcano/Jive) going head-to-head with Beyoncé’s Dangerously in Love (Columbia). Each appears likely to come in at around 120k.

Two other debuts—the hotly anticipated new one from Jane’s Addiction, Strays (Capitol), and Mya’s Mood Ring (Interscope)—look like they’re headed for weeks north of 100k as well.

Meanwhile, Arista Nashville’s Brad Paisley should see his Mud on the Tires register sales just shy of 100k. As they say at RCA Label Group HQ, “Waugh a debut!”
