Bruno Mars could notch his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 next week, thanks to Amazon MP3.
On Feb. 26, the digital retailer offered a bevy of albums for just $1.99, including Bruno Mars' latest, "Unorthodox Jukebox." Sources say that the title could jump to No. 1 on next week's Billboard 200 chart, thanks to robust sales from Amazon MP3.
It's a bit early to say exactly how much " Unorthodox Jukebox" could sell in the week ending March 3. But don't rule out a figure in the range of 70,000 to 80,000, which should be enough to fend off the rest of the chart competition. (Discounted sales of "Unorthodox Jukebox" count toward its weekly total because the album has been out for more than four weeks; Billboard doesn't count sales of albums priced below $3.49 in their first four weeks of release.)
