If [Susan Boyle's] Gift keeps on giving in the 225k-250k range, [it] should be enough to beat the likes of Kanye West and Nicki Minaj in their second week.

PEAS, GLEE HAVE "THE TIME”
FOR TOP DEBUT

Two New Releases Are Only Six-Figure Bows

It’ll be a week to mind your Peas and Glees.

Although it’s beginning to feel a lot like a Black Friday hangover.

The Black Eyed PeasInterscope album, The Beginning and Columbia’s Glee Cast Vol. 4 appear to be the top debuts on next week’s chart, based on one-day sales figures from those retailers who haven’t sold out their supply of $198 42” LG flat-screen TVs. Both appear set to bow in the 110-125k range, which won’t be enough to unseat whoever sits at #1 next week.

That could be Miss Kris Kringle herself, Susan Boyle, if her Gift keeps on giving in the 225k-250k range, which should be enough to beat the likes of Kanye West and Nicki Minaj in their second week.

Other Top 50 debuts should be registered by J/RMG’s Jazmine Sullivan (55-60k), Def Jam/IDJ’s Chrisette Michele (40-45k) and Reprise’s AC stalwart Eric Benet (30-35k).

Curb Country veteran Tim McGraw’s Number One Hits, Geffen’s El DeBarge comeback and Def Jam’s Ron Isley are all expected to sell in the 18-22k area.

The market was up 26% vs. last week, down 5% vs. same week last year and still down 13% year to date. You may now return to getting full-body scanned by the TSA.
