HDD – Album Sales Prediction : Mar 4-10

With 46.22% of reports in, this week’s number one is a compilation album from Country artist Luke Bryan. Spring Break has become an annual tradition with Luke with “Spring Break…Here to Party” following up EP releases for the last 4 years during the same week in March (“Spring Break with all My Friends”, “Spring Break 2…Hangover Edition”, “Spring Break 3…It’s a Shore Thing” and “Spring Break 4…Suntan City”). He is expected to sell 120-130K.

Next up is a posthumous album from Jimi Henrix. While it would be easy to assume that this too is a compilation album, “People Hell and Angels” is actually a studio album consisting of songs he was working on before he died. This is the twelfth album released since his death – all consisting of unreleased or live tracks.

Bruno Mars slides from 1st to 3rd this week followed by Rihanna, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Image Dragons, Florida Georgia Line, P!nk, fun. and Mumford & Sons.

Reality show contestants make appearances in the 30s. Phil’s “World from the Side of the Moon” is 32nd, Kellie’s Greatest Hits is 35th, Carrie’s “Blown Away” is 38th and One Direction’s “Take me Home” is 39th.

They are also featured on compilation albums. Now 45 (Kelly, P^2 and One Direction) is at 20th, Grammy Nominations (Kelly and Carly Rae) is right behind at 21st and Now 44 (Kelly and Carly Rae) is at 46th
