HITS Daily Double

Your Weakend Chart Preview

As we head into the big holiday weekend, all four (soon to become three) major distributors are represented in the Top 5. Michael Buble holds on to the #1 spot for a fifth week and moves up to the #2 best-selling album of 2011, unseating Lady Gaga's Born This Way. Adele scores her best-ever sales week at #2. And, unless something very unexpected happens next week, the Britpop thrush should reclaim the #1 spot for the final chart of 2011. Due to the holiday weekend, please expect a greater than usual margin of error.
