Mid-Weeks

YOUR TOP 15: As expected, Justin Timberlake will remain at #1 for a third week, leading a Top 15 that reads like a who's who of the music industry with almost as many individual labels represented. The 20/20 Experience, already the year's best selling album in just three weeks, extends its lead over 2013's #2 best seller, Mumford & Sons, by nearly double, approximately 1.42m to 717k. Here's how it looks headed into the weekend:

Justin Timberlake (RCA) 140-150k
*The Band Perry (Republic Nashville) 110-120k
*Tyler The Creator (Columbia) 85-95k
Blake Shelton (Warner Bros. Nashville) 75-80k
