YOUR DEBUT-STUDDED WEAKEND CHART PREVIEW

Lady Antebellum returns to the top next week, as the two-month streak of #1 albums over 100k continues, miraculously enough. As many as eight of the Top 15 will be new releases, with Blake Shelton and Almost Alice leading the way. Shelton's aggressive pricing and the opening of Alice in Wonderland this weekend could make it a tight race for the top debut. An exceptionally strong weekend for Shelton could put it in a position to challenge Sade for the #2 spot. Here's how it looks headed into the weekend:
Lady Antebellum (Capitol Nashville/EMI) 115-120k
Sade (Epic) 75-80k
* Blake Shelton (Warner Bros.) 70-75k
* Almost Alice (Buena Vista) 60-65k
* Danny Gokey (19/RCA Nashville) 45-50k
* Lifehouse (Geffen) 45-50k
* Jason Derulo (Beluga Heights/Warner Bros.) 45-50k
Lady Gaga, The Fame (Interscope) 45-50k
Black Eyed Peas (Interscope) 40-45k
* Easton Corbin (Mercury) 40-45k
* Raheem Devaughn (Jive/JLG) 40-45k
