With 54.02% of reports in, Mumford and Sons are showing us why we cannot extrapolate from early numbers. The band is predicted to have the highest debut so far of 2012 with sales in the 600K range, but they are currently sitting at 93,292 in sales. In any event, they are leading the chart and are predicted to stay leading the chart. No Doubt is currently way behind in second, but are predicted to finish third in the 120-125K range (so their half-way total is much closer to half of what they are predicted to sell). Green Day, despite a temper tantrum that got them a lot of press, is predicted to finish second with about 150K in sales, but they are currently sitting in third (I guess the remaining 45.98% of reports like their British rock bands better than the first 54.02%).
P!nk in her second week is fourth (she debuted at the top of the chart), Lupe Fiasco is debuting in 5th, Little Big Town is 6th, G.O.O.D (a Kanye compilation effort) is 7th, Now 43 must be on sale somewhere because it is in 8th (features Carly Rae Jepsen, One Direction, Cher Lloyd, XF US judge Demi Lovato and Voice judge Adam Levine), Adele is 9th and the Killers complete the current top 10.
Sitting at 14th, 16th, 18th and 20th respectively are Canadian Idol’s Carly Rae Jepsen, American Idol’s Carrie Underwood, the X-Factor’s One Direction, and (just so the Voice doesn’t feel left out, we’ll represent that show with a Judge) The Voice’s Adam Levine’s Maroon 5. Kelly Clarkson duets with Jason Aldean on his album which is currently at 42nd.
