Kenny Chesney, Barbra Streisand and Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga are battling for No. 1
Two days ago, on Sept. 24, it seemed like Kenny Chesney's new The Big Revival album was likely heading for No. 1 on next week's Billboard 200 chart. But now, he's in a dead heat with Barbra Streisand's current No. 1 champ, Partners. And not too far behind both of them: Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga with their duets album, Cheek to Cheek.
Industry forecasters suggest Chesney and Streisand's new albums may sell around 125,000 each in the week ending Sept. 28, while Bennett and Gaga are aiming for 120,000. Any one of the three albums may come out on top.
