YOUR WEAKEND TOP 15 CHART PREVIEW

The good news is that another relative newcomer is rolling toward a #1 debut, while an emerging rock band is neck and neck with the mighty Lady A for #2. But unless B.o.B. has himself a Lakers-like breakout performance over the weekend, it looks like he’ll fall short of six figures. Still, for a record that was expected to do closer to 50k on Tuesday, this dude is coming on strong. So let’s go for the glass-half-full approach on the B.o.B.ster. Not only that, but IDJ has five records in our projected Top 15, followed by surging Columbia with three. Here’s the story heading into the weekend:
* B.o.B. (Atlantic) 80-85k
* Bullet for My Valentine (Jive/RED) 65-70k
Lady Antebellum (Capitol Nashville/EMI) 65-70k
Justin Bieber, My World 2.0 (Island/IDJ) 60-65k
Usher (LaFace/JLG) 40-45k
AC/DC, Iron Man 2 (Columbia) 40-45k
* Melissa Etheridge (Island/IDJ) 40-45k
Glee Cast, Power of Madonna (Columbia) 28-32k
* Miranda Cosgrove (Columbia) 28-32k
Now 33 (Capitol/EMI) 28-32k
Lady Gaga, The Fame (Interscope) 24-27k
Justin Bieber, My World (Island/IDJ) 24-27k
Zac Brown Band (Atlantic) 21-24k
* Hole (Mercury/IDJ) 21-24k
Ke$ha (RCA/RMG) 19-21k
