YOUR HANDY DANDY WEAKEND CHART PREVIEW

Everyone in the biz has been fixating on Katy Perry's first-week tally, as our own I.B. Bad describes in detail in his latest column, and after some initial anxiety, the projections are hovering around the respectable but not earthshaking 200k range.  That will be more than enough to push Eminem off the perch he's occupied for most of the summer, and to fend off an unexpected challenge from Fantasia. Thanks to this threesome, we could have three albums in six figures next week. 

*Katy Perry (Capitol/EMI) 200k 
*Fantasia (J/RMG) 120-130k
Eminem (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope) 95-100k
*Usher Versus (LaFace/JLG) 40-45k
*Little Big Town (Capitol Nashville/EMI) 40-45k
Kem (Universal Motown) 30-35k
Trace Adkins (Show Dog) 27-30k
*Never Shout Never (Sire) 25-28k
*Randy Rogers Band (MCA Nashville) 24-27k
Justin Bieber (Island/IDJ) 24-27k
Kidz Bop 18 (Razor & Tie) 21-24k
Lady Antebellum (Capitol Nashville/EMI) 21-24k
Ray Lamontagne (RCA/RMG) 21-24k
*The Devil Wears Prada (Ferret) 21-24k
Rick Ross (Def Jam/IDJ) 18-21k
Drake (Young Money/Cash Money/Universal Motown) 18-21k
* Debuts (8/27a)
