Quantcast

Top 15

YOUR TOP 15 (PLUS ONE): As expected, Eminem will debut at #1 on next week’s chart in exactly the same range as his previous album, Recovery, debuted in 2010. Following the CMAs, Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line remain flat or gain slightly vs. last week. Other CMA beneficiaries on next week’s chart will include Kacey Musgraves and Blake Shelton, although neither appear headed for the Top 15 at this point. Duck Dynasty clan The RobertsonsDuck the Halls holds remarkably strong in its second week, dipping only a few thousand units. Will it be the best-selling holiday album of 2013? Stay tuned. Here’s how it looks headed into the weekend:
