HITS Daily Double


Ashlee Won’t Quit as 213, Ryan Cabrera, Saliva Hit the Streets
Looks like Ashlee Simpson is headed for a fourth week at #1, her fifth on the chart.

The younger Simpson sister is on track to log another week at over 200k, which will be plenty to assure that Autobiography (Geffen) continues its run at the top, according to early reports from national accounts. UTV’s Now 16 pop collection, while still up there, is not expected to challenge Simpson further.

The top chart debuts next week will include 213, the Snoop Dogg, Warren G and Nate Dogg G-Funk cooperative, whose The Hard Way (TVT) appears headed for first-week sales of about 80k

Also debuting will be Ashlee’s ex-boyfriend (and Joe Simpson management client) Ryan Cabrera, whose Take It All Away (Atlantic) is already having a nice first week, with projections after one day on sale pointing to a seven-day total of 60-70k.

And Island’s Saliva weighs in with their latest, Survival of the Sickest is on track for a first-week total of under 50k.
