Who will rule next week’s chart? Is it a fabulous week for Fabolous?

07.31.09 8 years ago


Fabolous looks fabulous to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 next week with “Loso’s Way.”  The rapper’s latest CD and most personal effort should sell right around 100,000 predicts Hits Daily Double.

On Hits chart, which, unlike Billboard, allows catalog titles, Michael Jackson still reigns supreme. Hits estimates “Michael Jackson Number Ones” will remain at No. 1 with sales of up to 110,000 copies. A Jackson title has ruled the top of the inclusive Hits chart for four of the last five weeks.

The only other debut likely to make it into Billboard top 10 is Ashley Tisdale’s “Guilty Pleasure.” However, don’t look for her to match fellow Disney-ite Demi Lovato’s chart topping move (on the Billboard 200) from last week.  Tisdale’s moved on to Warner Bros. and it looks like her album will sell in the 25,000-30,000 range.

Daughtry’s “Leave This Town” continues selling well and should hang out at No. 2 on Billboard, while Maxwell, Black Eyed Peas and Kings of Leon’s latest all consider to sell well enough to be in the Top 10.
