YOUR TOP 15: ADELE HITS #1... AGAIN

Following the Grammys, there's a lot of speculation as to how the numbers may play out at retail. Keep your eyes peeled for an update tomorrow, once we’ve seen a full day of sales. It's safe to say, though, with a performance on the big show under her belt and the power of Valentine's Day-driven purchasing, XL/Columbia's Adele will be #1.

Joey+Rory—a respected country duo (and spouses), who were just nominated for Best Duo/Group Country Vocal Performance—look like they'll have the highest-charting debut this week. The couple's well-documented personal struggles have elicited a strong response from their fans and community.
