Weezer’s “Embrace The Internet” Strategy Probably Won’t Lead It To The No. 1 Spot

Based on first-day sales, Hits is predicting that Weezer’s red self-titled album will move about 150,000 copies in the coming week, a total that’s good enough to give Rivers Cuomo and Co. the No. 2 spot on the coming week’s album chart. What’s the predicted No. 1, you might ask? Why, the posers in Disturbed, whose album Indestructible is predicted to sell between 230,000 and 250,000 copies. Other predicted debuts: Ashanti and the now-Pineda’d Journey will each sell within the 80,000-copy range, while Jewel’s attempt to cash in on the fact that country fans still buy albums may fool as many as 50,000 people.
