GUNFIGHT AT CHART CORRAL
Debuting Toby Keith, Kenny Chesney Duel for #1

A pair of cowboys will go head-to-head for chart supremacy next week.

 

BNA’s Kenny Chesney album, Hemingway’s Whiskey, has a good chance to repeat at #1 if his drop off is the accustomed 60% or less, with debuting Show Dog artist Toby Keith his biggest challenge at the 65-70k mark.

 

That’s based on one-day sales reports from those retailer praying to the Grilled Cheesus that business will pick up as Q4 gets underway.

 

Multi-talented performer/producer/writer Bruno Mars’ New Elektra debut, Doo-Wops & Hooligans, looks set for a debut between 45-50k. Among the smashes he’s either written or produced are Flo Rida’s “Right Round,” B.o.B’s “Nothin’ on You,” Travie McCoy’s “Billionaire” and Cee Lo Green’s red-hot “Fuck You.”

Asylum/WB Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame’s Flockaveli will debut with a total around 35-40k.

 

E1 Music’s Faith Evans, widow of the late Notorious B.I.G., returns with her sixth album, Something About Faith, her first since 2005’s A Faithful Christmas, looking at a likely 23-27k opening sales week. 

 

19/Jive/JLG former American Idol runner-up David Archuleta’s The Other Side of Down, the follow-up to his ’08 self-titled debut, should do between 22-25k, the same as Universal Republic indie-rock faves Guster’s Easy Wonderful.

Pimp C, the late member of rap duo UGK with partner Bun B, is represented by the posthumous Rap-a-Lot release, The Naked Soul of Sweet Jones, with sales estimates of 18-20k

 

The market was up 6% vs. last week, down 23% vs. same week last year and still down 13% year to date.
