Scotty McCreery HDD predicts 90-95K this week

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.

Michael Buble (Reprise) 425-450k
Adele 21 (XL/Columbia) 375-400k
*Young Jeezy (Def Jam/IDJ) 200-225
Justin Bieber (Island/IDJ) 175-200k
Lady Antebellum (Capitol Nashville/EMI) 115-125k
Drake (Young Money/Cash Money/Universal Republic) 100-110k
Nickelback (Roadrunner) 100-110k
Andrea Bocelli (Decca) 95-105k
Scotty McCreery (Mercury Nashville/19/Interscope) 90-95k
Rihanna (Def Jam/IDJ) 90-95k
The Black Keys (Nonesuch) 90-95k
Now 40 (Capitol/EMI) 90-95k
Coldplay (Capitol/EMI) 80-85k
Adele 19 (XL/Columbia) 75-80k
Jason Aldean (Broken Bow) 75-80k


  1. That would be a great #, it would get his total to around 843,000. Platinum is not far.

  2. Only two singles on the album have been released and when additional songs drop, Scotty is sure to go Platinum and beyond...for a first album that is more than fantastic.
