Quantcast
Columbia’s Bruce Springsteen tribute to the songs of Pete Seeger is now eyeing a debut in excess of 100k, thanks to plenty of action at non-traditional retail like iTunes and Starbucks.
FLATTS WHERE IT’S AT
Lyric Street Country Stars Log Third Week on Top, Followed by Now 21, High School Musical, Toby Keith
Call it a hat trick, even if Lyric Street’s Rascal Flatts are one Country act that goes bare-headed, even as they don the top spot on the HITS album chart for the third consecutive week with 140k in sales.

UTV’s Now 21 lands at #2 with 130k in sales, followed by Walt Disney RecordsHigh School Musical at #3 and Show Dog Nashville/Universal’s Toby Keith, who lives up to the name of his White Trash With Money album at #4.

Rounding out the Top 10 are Grand Hustle/Atlantic’s T.I. (#5), Curb’s Tim McGraw (#6), Custard/Atlantic’s James Blunt (#7), Epic’s Shakira (#8), WB’s Daniel Powter (#9) and LaFace/ZLG’s Pink (#10).

In an off week for new releases, New West’s Drive-By Truckers earn the top debut slot at #25, with Roadrunner’s The Dresden Dolls bowing at #43 and Fat Wreck Chord’s NOFX (#50). Virgin’s K.T. Tunstall (#45), Universal’s Blue October (#47) and Jive/ZLG’s Chris Brown (#48) all re-enter the chart.

Several acts are showing impressive upward movement, including Fueled by Ramen’s Panic! at the Disco (#28-16), VP/Atlantic’s Sean Paul (#26-17), Universal’s Chamillionaire (#31-18), Island/IDJ’s Johnny Cash compilation (#29-19), Epic’s The Fray (#50-28), Universal’s Prince (#37-29) and A&M/Interscope’s Keyshia Cole (#42-35).

Next week, Universal Republic’s Godsmack will be looking at a chart-topping debut, garnering more than 200k in first-week sales, with WB’s Taking Back Sunday not resting as they eye an estimated 140-160k and the #2 spot. Columbia’s Bruce Springsteen tribute to the songs of Pete Seeger is now eyeing a debut in excess of 100k, thanks to plenty of action at non-traditional retail like iTunes and Starbucks. Geffen’s Avant should also top the six-figure mark.
