Quantcast
Weakend Chart Preview

In one of the closest races we've seen for #1, Bruce Springsteen gets a slight edge over Adele in the battle for the top of next week's chart. Complicating the projections this week are the 25-cent albums being featured this week at Google Play, which are being price-matched at Amazon MP3. While we know about Now 41, Lil Wayne's Tha Carter IV and Lady Antebellum's Own the Night being offered at such a ridiculously low price, there are still several days left in the week to see what other titles get discounted. Because of this, please expect a greater than usual margin of error and expect to see at least a few more titles come in with much larger sales. Here's how things look at midweek:

*Bruce Springsteen (Columbia) 210-220k
Adele 21 (XL/Columbia) 210-220k
Now 41 (Capitol/EMI) 90-100k
Whitney Houston Greatest Hits (RCA) 80-85k
Lady Antebellum (Capitol Nashville/EMI) 65-70k
Lil Wayne (YM/Cash Money/Universal Republic) 60-65k
Adele 19 (XL/Columbia) 25-28k
*Luke Bryan EP (Capitol Nashville/EMI) 24-27k
Tyga (YM/Cash Money/Universal Republic) 21-24k
The Bodyguard soundtrack (RCA) 21-24k
Drake (YM/Cash Money/Universal Republic) 21-24k
Rihanna (Def Jam/IDJ) 18-21k
fun. (Fueled By Ramen) 17-20k
Gotye (Fairfax/Universal Republic) 17-20k
Kelly Clarkson (19/RCA) 15-18k
Luke Bryan (Capitol Nashville/EMI) 15-18k
