NEW RELEASES: KATY, METALLICA, MORE

Katy Perry's Smile (Capitol) and Metallica's S&M2 (Blackened) will land the top debuts on next week's HITS Top 50. Internet Money and Lil Wayne enter as well. 

With none of the new releases competing for #1, it looks like the top spot will once again go to Republic, in another tight race between Taylor Swift and Pop Smoke.

New Release projections:
Katy Perry (Capitol) 50-60k total activity, 40-45k albums
Metallica (Blackened) 50-55k, 45-50k
Internet Money (Internet Money/10K Projects) 27-32k, <1k
Lil Wayne (Cash Money/Republic) 24-27k, 2-3k
