Idol Sales News – Week Ending 11/17/13

Lady Gaga will have the number one album of the week, but with numbers much reduced from her last album. Kelly Clarkson remains in the top 10 with her Christmas album and Kellie Pickler is estimated to debut in the top 25. Susan Boyle and Scotty McCreery make the top 50.

One Direction is tearing up the sales chart with their new single “Diana”, but we won’t get those numbers until next week. We should see predictions for Daughtry’s album today from HDD.
