Happy New Year Everyone!
And welcome to 2014. Let’s be honest, we aren’t likely to see many numbers today. HDD did release some estimates late last night and Beyonce is the clear leader. Decent week for sales with Christmas albums taking a noticeable plunge. Next week should be scary. One Direction and Kelly Clarkson in the top 15.
1 Beyoncé (Columbia) 275-290k
2 One Direction (SYCO/Columbia) 130-145k
3 Eminem (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope) 125-140k
4 Frozen (Walt Disney) 120-135k
5 Katy Perry (Capitol) 90-100k
6 Garth Brooks (Pearl) 90-100k
7 Lorde (Lava/Republic) 75-85k
8 Imagine Dragons (KidinaKorner/Interscope) 65-75k
9 Now 48 (UMe) 55-65k
10 The Robertsons (EMI Nashville) 50-60k
