After Michael Buble's "Christmas" album squeaked past Nickelback's "Here and Now" to claim the No. 1 slot on the Billboard 200 this past week, it would see Mr. Buble isn't going anywhere soon.

His "Christmas" set should easily hold down the top slot on the chart next week, suggest industry sources -- and perhaps for the rest of the year. While it's too early to tell what the album may sell in the tracking week that ends on Sunday, Dec. 4, it's expected to get bigger. This past week, the album moved 227,000 according to Nielsen SoundScan.

No titles are forecasted to debut in the top 10 next week, with seemingly only Trey Songz's "Inevitable" EP and Hot Chelle Rae's "Whatever" on course for top 30 arrivals. Most of the biggest albums of 2011 have already taken a bow, hence why there is little threat to Buble's reign at No. 1.
