Capitol/EMI's Now 43 will debut at #1 next week, the first time a Now compilation has debuted on top since Now 37 hit the summit in February, 2011, with 151k.  Of course, there will likely be a surprise or two, thanks to Amazon MP3's 99-cent Daily Deals, starting with a probable #3 finish for Frank Sinatra's Nothing but the Best.
