Rock band Vampire Weekend is winging its way to a second No. 1 album next week. Its new Modern Vampires of the City album, released yesterday (May 14), may sell around 120,000 copies by the end of the tracking week on Sunday (19), according to industry forecasters.
It could mark the act's second No. 1, following its last release, 2010's Contra. It opened in the penthouse with 124,000 according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Aiming for the No. 2 slot next week is either Demi Lovato's fourth album Demi, or George Strait's latest, Love Is Everything. Both albums might sell between 100,000 to 110,000 copies.
