YOUR SUPER BOWL WEAKEND CHART PREVIEW

Lady Antebellum will hold on to the #1 spot for a second week with a total that may approach 200k, while Grammy winners and performers (Lady A among them) will dominate the leader board next week, as the Grammy spike once again takes effect. Taylor Swift, whose Fearless won Album of the Year, should finish the week with an increase of 85-90%. While this is less than previous Album of the Year winners, it should be noted that Fearless has already sold 5.5m copies. The projected totals on Grammy-affected LPs are followed by percentage increases—but bear in mind that these are guesstimations and are likely to change as weekend sales get worked in.
