YOUR TOP 15

The chart is not a pretty sight this week, as sales for the #1 album hit a record low. Disney’s The Descendants TV-movie ST will debut at #1 with about 30k—although it’s comforting to see Led Zeppelin in the #2-4 slots. That’s 10k less than the previous record holder, Amos Lee, whose 2011 release Mission Bell debuted on top with 40.5k. The SPS chart doesn’t look any better with Taylor Swift and Future battling it out for relative supremacy. Both are on track for about 40k, with Swift having a very slight lead. This will also mark the lowest SPS total to date—by nearly 20k--and quite possibly could be under the previous sales-only low. Here’s how the Top 15 looks at midweek. Due to limited info this week, please expect a greater than usual margin of error.

* The Descendants (Walt Disney) 28-33k sales, 30-35k SPS

* Led Zeppelin, Presence (Rhino) 22-25k, 23-26k

* Led Zeppelin, Coda (Rhino) 22-25k, 23-26k
