YOUR HANDY-DANDY WEAKEND CHART PREVIEW

YOUR HANDY-DANDY WEAKEND CHART PREVIEW

This year's streak of #1 albums over 100k will continue through the last chart in February, as Sade books another week at the top. Through the first two months in 2009, only two titles sold over 100k: Bruce Springsteen (224k) and The Fray (179k). Hey, it may not be 1999-esque, but it ain’t chopped liver either, not here in the early 21st century. For the record, the other six weeks last year all belonged to Taylor Swift, who, we should point out, is still rockin' the charts a year later. Here's how the Top 15 shapes up headed into the weekend:
Sade (Epic) 125-130k
Lady Antebellum (Capitol Nashville/EMI) 110-115k
Black Eyed Peas (Interscope) 50-55k
Lady Gaga, The Fame (Interscope) 45-50k
* Johnny Cash (American/Lost Highway) 40-45k
Lil Wayne (Cash Money/Universal Motown) 35-40k
Ke$ha (RCA/RMG) 27-30k
* Alkaline Trio (Epitaph) 25-28k
Taylor Swift (Big Machine) 24-27k
Rihanna (Def Jam/IDJ) 24-27k
Jaheim (Atlantic) 24-27k
Susan Boyle (Columbia) 24-27k
Alicia Keys (J/RMG) 23-25k
