The impressive debut for Zimmy comes on the heels of #1 sales at iTunes, a TV campaign for Apple’s music monster, the debut of his XM Satellite Radio show on AOL and some of the strongest reviews of his fabled career.

DYLAN’S NEWEST RIGHT ON TIMES

Legendary Rocker’s Columbia Album Headed for Top After #1 iTunes, Media Flurry, Young Dro, Jessica Simpson Up Next
To the prophet go the spoils.

Bob Dylan may be old enough to be your grandfather, but he also looks like he’s going to have the #1 album in the country next week, based on one-day reports from our cracked staff of retailers.

The critically acclaimed Modern Times, the third of a comeback trilogy which included 2001’s Love & Theft and 1997’s Grammy-winning Time Out of Mind, looks headed for the top slot on next Tuesday’s album sales chart with a total that could surpass 150k... a certain #1 successor to this week's champ, Danity Kane, thanks to strong sales at Starbucks and a #1 at iTunes.

The impressive debut for Zimmy comes on the heels of #1 sales at iTunes, a TV campaign for Apple’s music monster featuring him singing "Someday Baby" from the new album interspersed with the ubiquitous iPod dancer, the debut of his XM Satellite Radio show on AOL and some of the strongest reviews of his fabled career.

Grand Hustle/Atlantic rapper Young Dro, a protégé of fellow Atlanta hip-hop star T.I., is up next with a total that seems headed towards, if not past, 100k.  

Jessica Simpson’s Epic bow, A Public Affair, is headed for between 85-95k, followed by Def Jam/IDJ’s Method Man and The Roots’ IDJ debut (45-50k) with veteran Jive/ZLG Oaktown rapper Too Short next at 35k.

Next Tuesday, Epic/Interscope’s Audioslave and Columbia’s Beyonce top the list of new releases.

The market was off by less than one percent vs. last week, down slightly over 1% vs. same week last year and now down over 5% year-to-date.
