Quantcast
J/RMG's Marsha Ambrosius, one-half of the U.K. neo-soul/R&B duo Floetry, emerges with her major label debut, Late Nights & Early Mornings, to score a surprising first-week total of 85-90k that should land her a #2 bow behind fellow Brit diva Adele.
FLOETRY IN MOTION
Adele Repeats, Marsha Ambrosius Debuts, Dropkick Murphys Rule
The year's top seller so far, Adele will repeat at #1 next week, but there are a flurry of new releases coming this week that should freshen up the top of the chart.

That's based on first-day sales reports from those music retailers who haven't boarded up their stores and gone to live in Charlie Sheen's mansion.

J/RMG's Marsha Ambrosius, one-half of the U.K. neo-soul/R&B duo Floetry, emerges with her major label debut, Late Nights & Early Mornings, to score a surprising first-week total of 85-90k that should land her a #2 bow behind fellow Brit diva Adele. She has penned songs for Michael Jackson ("Butterflies") and appeared on tracks from a variety of artists, from Nas to Jamie Foxx.
 
Boston-based Irish punk-rockers Dropkick Murphys, a favorite of Martin Scorsese (who put one of their songs in his Oscar-winning The Departed) should do around 35-40k for their Born & Bred/ILG album, Going Out in Style, their seventh studio effort and first since 2007's The Meanest of Times. It includes a guest vocal by Bruce Springsteen on the early 20th century standard, "Peg o' My Heart."
 
Staind front man Aaron Lewis returns with his solo debut, Town Line, a country effort on Stroudavarious, the label founded by producer and former Giant Records and DreamWorks Nashville head James Stroud, which appears headed for a first-week total of between 28-32k

Veteran Americana roots singer-songwriter Lucinda Williams' latest Lost Highway album, Blessed, her 11th in an impressive, critically acclaimed career, should do in the 21-24k range.
 
Dangerbird's Beady Eye, the group including former Oasis members Liam Gallagher, Gem Archer and Andy Bell, emerge on their own self-titled label with Different Gear, Still Speeding, which is looking at first-week sales between 12-15k

Universal Motown Texas punk-rockers Forever the Sickest Kids' self-titled second full-length album is also projected to be in the 12-15k range.
 
Finally, Capitol Nashville/EMI's Luke Bryan is looking at that same 12-15k total for his third album, Spring Break 3...It's a Shore Thing.

The market was down 10% vs. last week, up 8% vs. the same week last year and now down 9% year to date.
