Sugarland Vs. Miley Cyrus: Anyone’s Guess

Dan Gibson | July 25, 2008 11:30 am

The Great Miley Cyrus/Sugarland Battle of ’08 continues with today’s chart projections from Hits. Little did we know that Miley had a trick up her sleeve (on those days that she actually wears sleeves, anyway).

The TV premiere of her concert film, which chronicles a show on the Best of Both Worlds Tour, is this Saturday. The movie was shot in 3-D, and the glasses needed to view Hannah/Miley in her illusory glory are exclusively available at Wal-Mart, where they’re likely stocked somewhat near copies of her new album. Top that, Sugarland!

In other news, Nas’ untitled album looks to make the now-standard second-week slide down the charts, while the improbable run of that ABBA covers album featuring Colin Firth continues. Speaking of improbable runs, thanks largely to people in my neighborhood, I believe, Kid Rock looks to grab a somewhat distant fourth place. Of course, as last week showed, these numbers can change rather quickly between now and the week’s official close on Sunday, so place your chart-related wagers wisely.

The current projections:

1. Miley Cyrus (Hollywood) 360-380k 2. Sugarland (Mercury Nashville) 340-360k 3. Mamma Mia (Decca) 130-140k 4. Kid Rock (Atlantic) 85-90k 5. Coldplay (Capitol) 75-80k 6. Lil Wayne (Cash Money/Universal Motown) 75-80k 7. Nas (Def Jam/Columbia) 60-65k 8. Camp Rock (Walt Disney) 60-65k 9. Taylor Swift, Beautiful Eyes (Big Machine) 40-45k (Wal-Mart exclusive) 10. Now 28 (Capitol) 35-40k
