This holiday season, it appears Michael Bublé’s Christmas album is the gift that keeps on giving.
Based on one-day sales, Michael's year-end collection looks to be the big winner coming out of Black Friday, with an estimate of 250-275k, which would be enough to turn back all the Mega Monday debuts.
Still, given the big shopping weekend, please be aware that sales could go higher than what are predicted.
Roadrunner’s Nickelback win the battle of the newcomers, with their seventh studio album, Here and Now, which is looking to be in the 210-225k range.
Last week’s chartopper, Drake, drops to #3 with an estimated 190-215k, bringing its two-week total to around 860k.
Pop diva Rihanna’s Talk That Talk should enter at #4, with between 180-200k, which compares favorably to the 207k she debuted with for last year’s Loud.
Rocker Daughtry's third album, Break the Spell, will debut at #5 with between 140-150k, while his previous release, 2009's Leave This Town, bowed with 270k.
