YOUR DRAB WEAKEND CHART PREVIEW

Lady Antebellum will regain the #1 spot on next week's chart with a total in the 90-95k range, marking the first time this year that the #1 album has sold less than 100k. By contrast, last year at this time, only four #1 albums had crossed that mark (Bruce Springsteen, 224k; The Fray, 179k; U2, 484k; Kelly Clarkson, 255k). Through the first 12 weeks of 2010, the #1 albums will have cumulatively sold 2.45m copies. Last year, for the same period, the #1 albums cumulatively sold 1.75m copies. Now if only the rest of the chart would catch up.
