Your Weakend Chart Preview


Adele's XL/Columbia sophomore release, 21, will explode onto the chart next week with a total that will go between 325-350k, thanks to a spate of high-visibility TV performances. The rest of the Top 15 is made up of the usual suspects from the last few weeks, only with a lot lower numbers as the post-Grammy/Valentine's Day hangover begins. Of note this week, Mumford & Sons and Rihanna are both expected to cross the 1m mark.
