Breaking Benjamin Set for #1 Bow; Kelly, Musgraves, Bridges Set for Strong Debuts

Rockers Breaking Benjamin will score a #1 debut next week on both our sales and SPS charts, prompting label chief Ken Bunt to play some wicked air guitar. Thus far, signs point to the new set (now #1 at iTunes) surpassing the band’s 2009 release, Dear Agony, which bowed with 134k.

We'll also see impressive bows from Pop siren Tori Kelly, acclaimed Nashville singer/songwriter Kacey Musgraves and buzzing soul revivalist Leon Bridges, among others. Here are this week’s key debuts. 

Breaking Benjamin (Hollywood) 135-145k sakes, 145-155k SPS
Tori Kelly (Capitol) 60-65k, 70-75k
Kacey Musgraves (Mercury Nashville) 50-55k, 55-60k
Leon Bridges (Columbia) 28-33k, 30-35k
Teen Beach 2 (Walt Disney) 21-24k, 24-27k 

The Teen Beach ST may well kick up a lot more sand once the movie airs this weekend on the Disney Channel, in which case Ken will supplement his air guitar with some frugging.
