Weakend Chart Preview

With the Grammy Awards on Sunday night and the last weekend before Valentine's Day upon us, there is a lot more conjecture than usual in this week's midweek projections. The show’s performers typically see substantial increases after appearing, as evidenced by the remarkable spike seen last year by Mumford & Sons. Can Adele, who is performing and favored to win Album, Record and Song of the Year, see a big enough lift to keep Van Halen from scoring next week's #1 record? Here's how it looks headed into Grammy weekend:

*Van Halen (Interscope) 180-195k
Adele 21 (XL/Columbia) 175-190k
*Now 41 (Capitol/EMI) 130-140k
*The Fray (Epic) 85-95k
*Paul McCartney (Hear Music/Concord) 65-70k
*Dierks Bentley (Capitol Nashville/EMI) 55-60k
2012 Grammy Nominees (Universal Republic) 55-60k
LMFAO (Interscope) 30-35k
Drake (YM/CM/Universal Republic) 30-35k
Lana Del Rey (Interscope) 28-32k
Kidz Bop Kids (Razor & Tie) 27-30k
Rihanna (Def Jam/IDJ) 25-28k
Adele 19 (XL/Columbia) 24-27k
Tim McGraw (Curb) 24-27k
Mary J. Blige (Geffen) 24-27k
