Poor Kiss. More than 30 years into their career, the glam rockers have never landed a No. 1 album. They looked like they were coming thisclose with “Sonic Boom,” their first album in 11 years.
But what looked like a fairly sure thing at the end of last week, got shot through with holes after a little lady named Oprah got hold of Michael Buble. The crooner appeared on her royal highness’ show on Friday, causing Warner Bros.’ to rush release Buble’s “Crazy Love” for a Friday release instead of its originally scheduled Oct. 13 release. In doing so, it looks like ”Crazy Love” will beat Kiss to the top of the charts with only three days of sales.
Hits Daily Double projects that Buble will sell around 130,000, while Kiss, after a strong start last Tuesday, will move about 105,000 copies in its Wal-Mart exclusive.
