Beyonce's '4' Will Go For 2 Weeks at No. 1
It looks like Beyonce's "4" album is going to hold at No. 1 for a second week on the Billboard 200, as a serious lack of high-powered new releases won't post a threat to the diva's station atop the list.
The biggest new album that dropped yesterday (July 5) was Lloyd's "King of Hearts" set, which, according to industry prognosticators, may sell around 20,000 copies by week's end on Sunday, July 10. That figure might garner it a debut somewhere in the top 15.
Beyonce's "4" bowed at No. 1 this past week with 310,000 according to Nielsen SoundScan -- marking the leading lady's fourth solo No. 1 album.
Other new albums that are going to take a bow on next week's Billboard 200 include We the Kings' "Sunshine State of Mind," Pop Evil's "War of Angels," Unearth's "Darkness in the Light" and Old 97's "The Grand Theatre Vol. 2."
