Due to the July 4th holiday on Monday, we didn’t get any HDD predictions for Monday. The final predictions should arrive today. Many people are eagerly waiting to see where Cook and the new S10 EPs land on the charts this week. On Thursday, HDD predicted that David Cook and Scotty will be hovering around the top 10 with 38-43K in sales, but their sales seem rather mercurial with several adjustments having been made on the estimates. Beyonce is predicted to have the top album and top debut this week with 290-310k in sales.
HDD predicts the top 50 albums each week (while the weekend updates typically cover only the top 15-20 albums).
