With 69.42% of reports in, Rapper Lecrae is set to have the number one album of the week. This would be his first album to top the BB200 chart. He’s predicted to sell in the 75-80K range. Last week, HDD and BB were predicting that R&B artist Jhene Aiko would finish second, but right now Maroon 5 has the slot with “V”. Maroon 5 features Voice Judge Adam Levine and had the number one album last week. The album sold 164K last week according to BB, so (mixing reporters which we really shouldn’t do) with 58K in sales already reported, they are going to have a nice hold-over (64% drop in sales right now, but there are likely more sales to be reported so the drop will be less than that in an era when second week drops are in the 70% range).
Lee Brice (Country) and Ryan Adams (Rock, Alt-Country) are debuting in 5th and 6th. [Young] Jeezy (Rap) is 6th, Dustin Lynch (Country) 7th, Ariana Grande (Pop) is 8th, Banks (Alt-Pop) is 9th and Interpol (Indie Rock) is 10th.
Now 51 features a track featuring X-Factorer Cher Lloyd. The compilation album is at 12th. Meghan Trainor has flown up the single charts (with jaw-dropping increases on Pop and topped the Hot 100 last week) and just dropped an EP at 13th (I just like mentioning her). Nashville Star’s Miranda Lambert is 31st and she has a song on her album that is a duet with Idol’s Carrie Underwood. X-Factor’s One Direction has a track on Now 50 at 32nd.
Judges appear at 31st (Brad Paisley) and 41st (Blake Shelton).
