Pre-Weakend Chart Preview

Rock is back, at least for a week. Nickelback will be the top post-Black Friday debut from today and will battle Michael Buble for the #1 album next Tuesday. Drake, in his second week, could be a spoiler, but seems a long shot as of today. Here's a bigger than a breadbox look at this week's key new releases. I'll update with more fine-tuned projections tomorrow. 

Nickelback (Roadrunner) 225-250k
Rihanna (Def Jam/IDJ) 180-200k
Daughtry (19/RCA) 140-160k
Mary J. Blige (Geffen) 120-140k
Big Time Rush (Nickelodeon/Columbia) 90-110k
Taylor Swift (Big Machine) 75-90k
Michael Jackson (Epic) 50-60k
Bob Seger, Ultimate Hits (Capitol) 50-55k
Yelawolf (Ghet-O-Vision/Shady/Interscope) 40-50k (11/22p)
