NEW RELEASES: MACCA, SHADY AND 'MORE

Taylor Swift gets the edge for a second week at #1, but she's got some competition from Sir Paul McCartney. Swift seems certain to hit 100k+ this week as evermore (Republic) CDs hit stores just in time for Christmas. Can McCartney, who's currently projecting a little under 100k, close the gap? Stay tuned. Eminem’s deluxe Music to Be Murdered By–Side B is headed for #3.

Paul McCartney (Capitol) 85-95k total activity, 80-90k albums
Eminem (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope) 70-80k, 25-30k

Rumor has it UMG has a major release dropping on New Year's Day. With Justin Bieber livestreaming his first show since 2017 on New Year's Eve, wonderers are wondering if this signals a new album to start off 2021.
