Chart preview

YOUR PRESEASON WEAKEND CHART PREVIEW: It's a very safe bet to say that Eminem will return to the top of the chart next week. Fact is, he’ll be the only act to sell in six digits, as the dog days of summer appear in tandem with a belated SoCal heatwave. Eminem will cross the 2.1m mark next week and close the gap with Lady Antebellum in the race for 2010's top selling album (so far). Including next week's projection, Lady A has now sold just north of 2.5m units. Based on midweek sales reports, here’s how next week's Top 15 might look:

Eminem (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope) 130-140k
Arcade Fire (Merge) 40-50k
* Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam (Walt Disney) 40-45k
* Black Label Society (E1) 40-45k
* Mike Posner (J/RMG) 30-35k
Justin Bieber (Island/IDJ) 30-35k
* Blake Shelton (Warner Bros. Nashville) 30-35k
Kidz Bop Kids (Razor & Tie) 28-32k
Rick Ross (Def Jam/IDJ) 28-32k
Avenged Sevenfold (Warner Bros.) 25-28k
Lady Antebellum (Capitol Nashville/EMI) 22-25k
Drake (Young Money/Cash Money/Universal Motown) 22-25k
