Eminem”s new album, “The Marshall Mathers LP 2,” will come in at No. 1 next week, handily outselling its nearest competitor 10 to 1.

The rapper”s seventh album to bow at No. 1 will sell up to 750,000 copies, according to Hits Daily Double. Coming in second will be Celine Dion”s “Loved Me Back To Life,” moving 80,000 units. Eminem’s tally will give him the second biggest opening week of 2013, behind Justin Timberlake’s “The 20/20 Experience,” which sold 958,000.

Also bowing in the Top 10 is Avril Lavigne”s self-titled set at No. 6 (45,000).

Katy Perry”s former No. 1, “Prism,”  is tied for No. 3, with sales of up to 65,000, with the Robertsons” “Duck The Halls.” The Robertsons are better known as the family behind “Duck Dynasty.” Another holiday title, Kelly Clarkson”s “Wrapped In Red” lands at No. 5.

Lorde”s “Pure Heroine,” Drake”s “Nothing Was the Same,” and this week”s chart topper, Arcade Fire”s “Reflektor” are too close to call for the No. 7 spot, with each targeted to sell between 30,000-35,000.

Rounding out the top 10 will be Miley Cyrus”s “Bangerz” (28,000-32,000).
