HITS Daily Double

Chart preview


Stone Temple Pilots has the slight edge over the Glee Cast for #1 on next week's album chart, with projected sales between 60-65k, though the latest Columbia soundtrack to the hit Fox show is nipping at its heels, and could provide the spoiler with a stronger-than-expected weekend, which right now looks between 55-60k. Note, we’re under triple digits again, but never fear, Jack Johnson’s coming (make that strumming) to the rescue next Tuesday with industry estimates around 300k. The soundtrack to Sex and the City 2 may debut higher than projected if the movie has a strong opening. For now, though, here's the Top 15 headed into the holiday weekend:
