HDD – Album Sales Prediction : Jan 7-13

Ah, these are the kind of numbers we usually expect in January. Crappy. Actually, the top album of the week, a debut from Christian Contemporary artist Chris Tomlin is predicted to sell around 70-75K which isn’t as bad as it can get in January. And the albums inside the top 10 might sell as much as 30K. Woo?

With 69.42% of reports in, Chris Tomlin’s “Burning Lights” is out to a commanding lead with a total more than twice Taylor Swift’s “RED”. Hollywood Undead are third, followed by the “Les Miz” soundtrack (last week’s number one). P!NK is telling us the truth about love at 5th, the Lumineers are 6th with their self-titld album, unorthodox Bruno Mars is 7th and wretched & divine Black Veil Brides are 8th.

Kelly Clarkson currently leads up the reality show contestants with her Greatest Hits album at 9th while One Direction is at 10th with “Take Me Home”. Their first album, “Up All Night” also continues in the top 50 at 38. Our latest American Idol, Phil Phillips slides out of the top 10 with his “World from the Other Side of the Moon” at 14th (time for a second single?). Finally, Carrie Underwood’s “Blown Away” is at 32.

The Voice judges are represented by first season winner Adam Levine and his band Maroon 5 at 19th while Christina’s who has never one is at 44.
