top 15

YOUR TOP 15: Lord have mercy! It's looking like Christian Contemporary artist (not contemporary Christian, as previously reported) Chris Tomlin will debut at #1 on next week's chart, as the Top 3 albums are all new releases. We're hoping that our coverage of Chris' chart success will help keep us from getting struck by lightning, at least for another week. Here's how it looks headed into the weekend:

* Chris Tomlin (sixsteps/Sparrow) 70-75k
* Hollywood Undead (A&M/Octone) 50-55k
* Black Veil Brides (Republic) 45-50k
Les Misérables (Republic) 45-50k
Taylor Swift (Big Machine) 45-50k
Bruno Mars (Atlantic) 35-40k
Pitch Perfect (UMe) 35-40k
Lumineers (Dualtone) 30-35k
* Dropkick Murphys (Dropkick Murphys) 30-35k

In a related story, we're pitching a script about a faith-based girl who goes to Wal-Mart to buy Chris Tomlin's record and meets a boy who's there for the Hollywood Undead record and, you know, sparks fly, but their families don't understand, yada yada. (1/10p)
