'Frozen' and Luke Bryan face off for top album in the country next week
As Spring nears, “Frozen” will spread one more cool blast over the Billboard 200 as the soundtrack is poised to return to the top spot one more time. In its 16th week, the set will likely bounce up from No. 3 with projected sales of up to 80,000.
That would be enough to narrowly beat Luke Bryan’s “Spring Break 6: Like We Ain’t Never” EP, which looks like it will more up to 75,000 units, according to Hits Daily Double, to make it the highest new entry.
In a low sales week, it looks like four other new titles will bow in the top 10: Aloe Blacc’s “Lift Your Spirit” at No. 5 (40,000), 311’s “Stereolithic” at No. 6 (35,000-40,000), Young Money compilation, “Young Money: Rise of an Empire” at No. 7 (27,000-30,000) and country singer Sara Evans’ “Slow Me Down” at No. 8 (27,000-30,000).
Lorde’s “Pure Heroine” will be at No. 9 (24,000-27,000) and Eric Church’s “The Outsiders” at No. 10 (22,000-25,000).
The official chart will bow on Wednesday, March 19.
