Weakend Chart Preview

Evanescence will score the #1 album next week. It's the #2 spot that may be up for grabs as Adele, in her 34th week, will face some competition from Scotty McCreery, down only 50-55% in his second week, and from Jeff Kwatinetz's Five Finger Death Punch, who will more than double their previous best chart week. Here's how it looks headed into the weekend:
