Quantcast
Weakend Chart Preview

This time last year, January was off to a strong start with Ke$ha's Animal set to debut at 151k. Not so this year as Taylor Swift may add an unwanted footnote to her career by setting a record for the lowest total ever for a #1 album. Currently the Dreamgirls soundtrack holds that undistinguished title with sales of 60k for the week ending 1/14/07. Should Swift not exceed next week's projected range, that title would then belong to her. Here's how it looks headed into the weekend:

Taylor Swift (Big Machine) 55-60k
Nicki Minaj (YM/Cash Money/Universal Motown) 40-45k
Daft Punk Tron: Legacy (Walt Disney) 35-40k
Lady Antebellum Merry Little Christmas (Capitol Nashville/EMI) 35-40k
Kanye West (Roc-a-Fella/IDJ) 35-40k
Rihanna (Def Jam/IDJ) 35-40k
Eminem (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope) 30-35k
Bruno Mars (New Elektra) 30-35k
Mumford & Sons (Glassnote) 30-35k
Jason Aldean (Broken Bow) 27-30k
Katy Perry (Capitol/EMI) 24-27k
R. Kelly (Jive/JLG) 24-27k
Black Eyed Peas (Interscope) 21-24k
Lady Antebellum Need You Now (Capitol Nashville/EMI) 21-24k
Kid Rock (Atlantic) 21-24k
T.I. (Grand Hustle/Atlantic) 21-24k
** No debuts this week (1/6p)
