HDD – Album Sales Prediction : Jan 21-27

With 72.31% reports in, Country artist Gary Allan is out to a decisive lead. “Set You Free” is his 9th studio album (plus 2 compilation albums) and is predicted to sell 90-100K. Behind them are the Lumineers and their self-titled album riding a boost from an SNL appearance.

The Grammy Nominees album was released this week, but its best selling week tends to be Grammy week. This year, the album contains American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger” and Canadian Idol contestant Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe”. Voice judge Adam Levine’s band Maroon 5 also has “Payphone” on the album. The album is currently in 3rd and expected to sell 35-40K.

Soundtrack album “Pitch Perfect” is 4th, Kids are bopping to 5th, Taylor is swifting up the competition at 6th, Bruno is being unorthodox at 7th, Randy Houser is debuting in 8th, A$AP Rocky is bringing in the $ at 9th (last week’s number 1) and Little Big Town is rounding out the top 10.

Our first Idol album appears at 14 and it is Phil Phillips “World From the Other Side of the Moon”. Carrie Underwood’s “Blown Away” is at 27th and Kelly Clarkson’s Greatest Hits album is at 31st. X-Factor’s One Direction has their latest album “Take Me Home” at 18th and their first album “Up all Night” at 39th. Voice Judge Adam Levine’s Maroon 5 makes an appearance at 28th with Overexposed. Now 44 features judges and contestants.
