HDD – Album Sales Prediction : Oct 8-14

With 54.98% of the market reporting in, Mumford & Sons are headed for their third week atop the BB200 album chart. Something like this hasn’t happened since Adele ruled the charts (and she’s still there just outside the top 10). The top debut this week is from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, a duo of rappers from Seattle.

Gene Simmons may be an a$$ and his turns on reality shows tend to make my skin crawl, but KISS is still putting out albums and they are destined for third on the chart. P!NK is 4th and Barbara’s collection of never before released tracks (aptly named “Release Me”) is 5th.

Little Big Town represents Country in the top 10, rapper MGK is 7th, R&B artist Miguel is 8th and prog rockers Coheed and Cambria are currently debuting in 10th.

The highest charting reality show contestant on the chart this week is Jackie Evancho from America’s Got Talent. This is Jackie’s 4th album/EP and she’s only 12. What had you accomplished by age 12? The album, in it’s second week, is 9th. Idol’s Carrie Underwood is in 17th and Carly Rae Jepsen is 28th. Right behind her is X-Factor’s Cher Lloyd at 28th. Her season-mates, One Direction, are at 20th.

Kelly Clarkson appears on Jason Aldean’s album which at 46th while Now 43 at 13th features Carly Rae Jepsen, One Direction, Cher Lloyd, XF US judge Demi Lovato and Voice judge Adam Levine. Adam Levine’s band Maroon 5 is at 19th.
