Taylor Swift's 1989 should easily lock up a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart next week. Industry sources suggest the album could sell more than 350,000 copies in the week ending Nov. 9.
The Big Machine Records release blasted in at No. 1, selling 1.287 million copies in the week ending Nov. 2, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
If 1989 sells more than 350,000 copies in its second frame, it will mark the third-biggest week of the year (behind 1989's debut, and Coldplay's arrival with Ghost Stories: 383,000).
Swift's last album, Red, debuted with 1.208 million and held at No. 1 for a second week with 344,000.
The new Billboard 200's top 10 will be revealed on Wednesday, Nov. 12.
No other album will likely threaten 1989's second week at No. 1. The biggest debut of the week will likely be Calvin Harris' new album Motion, which might sell 35,000 copies.
