Weakend Chart Preview

YOUR LABOR-INTENSIVE WEAKEND CHART PREVIEW
Reprise Midwest marauders Disturbed grab their fourth straight #1 album this week, with Asylum looking at between 150-160k in sales, as a total of six titles are set to debut in next week's Top 10. Katy Perry will fight it out with Eminem for the #3 spot and may benefit from the holiday weekend as Wal-Mart and Target shoppers stock up on BBQ essentials and sunscreen. A #2 bow for Now 35 would give EMI two of the top three. Here's a look at the scoreboard as we head toward Labor Day 2010:

* Disturbed (Reprise) 150-160k
* Now 35 (Capitol/EMI) 95-105k
Katy Perry (Capitol/EMI) 85-95k
Eminem (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope) 80-85k
