Death Cab Bounced Aside By 3 Doors Down

Death Cab For Cutie’s reign at the top of the album charts was fun while it lasted, but Alabama natives and Hinder/Staind touring buddies 3 Doors Down are projected to take the No. 1 spot on Wednesday by a landslide, with around 150,000 projected sales of their new, self-titled album. Bun B’s post-UGK solo album trails in the No. 2 spot, with sales likely falling just short of the six-digit mark, and squeaky clean, yet scantily clad dancer turned country star Julianne Hough grabbing No. 3 with 60,000 sales. Last week’s chart slides down with Frank Sinatra at No. 4, Death Cab as the likely No. 5, and the deathless Leona Lewis at No. 6. Duffy, Mariah Carey, Toby Keith, and Madonna are the likely picks for the rest of the top 10, with all those albums projected to sell in the 40,000-copy range. [HITS Daily Double]
