"Paramore," the group's fourth album, could fend off Justin Timberlake and Brad Paisley for the top spot.
Rock band Paramore is aiming for its first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, as its new self-titled release should bow atop the list next week. Industry sources project that the album, the group's first since 2009, may sell around 110,000 copies by the end of the tracking week on Sunday, April 14.
The trio's last release, "Brand New Eyes," debuted and peaked at No. 2 with 175,000 sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
If Paramore hits No. 1, it will mark the second chart-topper for its label, Fueled by Ramen. The company earlier hit the top with Fall Out Boy's "Infinity On High" on Feb. 24, 2007.
