Sure, Lil Wayne Is Going To Sell A Boatload Of Albums. But What About Plies?

At this point, we’ve all heard that Lil Wayne is going to dominate the charts next week, approaching the long-forgotten one week/one million sold mark last achieved by 50 Cent in 2005. However, Plies (who, to me, is sullying the once proud Slip-N-Slide name) is also having a pretty good week, as he’s on track to sell around 225,000 copies of Definition of Real. Chris Molanphy favorite Now 28 likely will jump past last week’s chart-topper Disturbed into third (140-150,000), with the bald guy and his anonymous band fighting it out with Usher for fourth (95-100,000). N.E.R.D. will likely debut in sixth with around 90,000 sold; Wal-Mart keeps the Journey wheel rolling, selling around 80,000 copies of their likely No. 7 Revelation; and 55,000 suckers will soon regret purchasing the new Alanis Morissette. My Morning Jacket, Weezer, and the unkillable Sex And The City soundtrack are battling for the last two spots in the top ten. Next week, some British dudes and the delightful Katy Perry hit stores.
