Hits Daily Double’s 1 day sales prediction has Carrie Underwood, Adele and Adam Lambert battling it out for the #1 spot on the Billboard 200:
While it’s still early in the week, a three-way battle is shaping up for #1 between Adele and Carrie Underwood, both of which will have substantial post-Mother’s Day drops, and Adam Lambert, who appears to be trending to the high end of expectations.
The former American Idol runner-up and 19/RCA recording artist’s sophomore album, Trespassing, looks set to debut with between 70-80k, which will at least put him in the running for a chart-topping bow.
Expect a sales prediction update from hits on Thursday afternoon.
UPDATE: Billboard cites industry sources who say Carrie Underwood’s current champ, Blown Away, or Adele’s 21 could both sell 65,000 to 75,000.
