As for the last batch of major debuts of 2008, Geffen diva Keyshia Cole’s A Different Me looks to be the biggest, with a projected first-week total of 275-300k, good enough for a #2 bow.

J/RMG actor-turned-R&B crooner Jamie Foxx’s Intuition should have a high debut, possibly even #3, with estimates in the 210-230k range.

Island/IDJ emo-rockers Fall Out Boy’s delayed Folie a Deux is up next at 125-135k, with Amazon launching a $3.99 MP3 Deal of the Day yesterday and today that should boost sales figures.

Grammy-nominated LaFace/ZLG soul man Anthony Hamilton is looking at 120-130k for his new album, The Point of it All.

Atlantic rapper Plies, an alum of the Florida-based Slip N’ Slide label, is on target for 95-105k for his new album, DA REAList.

DGC/Interscope Oklahoma rockers All-American Rejects are trending at 60-65k for their apocalyptic-sounding third album, When the World Comes Down.

Interscope kid rapper Soulja BoyTell'Em returns with his sophomore album after a successful debut and is eyeing 30-35k in first-week sales.

The market was up 14% vs. last week, down 28% vs. same week last year and still down 14% year to date.
