AC/DC and High School Musical 3 Will Battle it Out for 1-2

AC/DC’s Wal-Mart exclusive Black Ice and the third installment of Disney’s lucrative High School Musical franchise will vie for the top spot on next week’s HITS Album sales chart, though it’s still too soon to actually tell in what order.


The week’s top debut will be P!nk’s Funhouse album on LaFace/ZLG, which offers love/hate valentines about ex-husband, motocross rider Carey Hart, including her first-ever #1 single, “So What.”  With projected sales of 160-170k, the resurgent diva appears headed for a #3 bow, just ahead of Grammy-winning G.O.O.D. Music/Columbia soul crooner John Legend’s Evolver, which projects to between 140-150k.


Show Dog Nashville
country star Toby Keith’s That Don’t Make Me a Bad Guy looks to be in the 90-100k range, with Lyric Street’s Rascal Flatts greatest hits album just behind with a total of 80-90k.


Other chart newcomers include Lost Highway’s Ryan Adams and the Cardinals, Columbia’s Celine Dion hits compilation and Interscope’s Snow Patrol, all trending between 40-50k.


Stream Line/Kon Live/Interscope
disco queen Lady GaGa and Suretone/Geffen’s goth-emo progenitors The Cure are both looking at between 20-25k in first-week sales.


The market was up 8% vs. last week, down 15% vs. same week last year. still down 12% year to date, and not even close to doing as well as Sarah Palin’s stylist.
