Quantcast
Weakend Chart Preview


The top of next week's chart will be dominated by Sony Music with as many as seven titles in the Top 10. Chris Brown will lead the way with debuts by Jennifer Hudson, The Strokes and Kirk Franklin also on tap. Adele, this week's chart topper, could possibly remain in the Top 5. However, the spoiler to an all-Sony Top 5 could come from Universal Music as they are slated to release a compilation album tomorrow (3/25) to benefit the earthquake- and tsunami-ravaged Japan. The album will be digital only, at least for now, and will feature dozens of tracks from all the major music groups. Rihanna, Justin Bieber and possibly Lady GaGa have all contributed tracks. Where this will land on the chart won't be known until Monday morning. Overall, eight of the Top 15 may be new entries. Here's how it looks headed into the weekend:

*Chris Brown (Jive/JLG) 270-280k
*Jennifer Hudson (Arista/RMG) 160-170k
*The Strokes (RCA/RMG) 90-95k
