John Mayer is on course for a No. 2 debut on the Billboard 200 next week with his sixth studio album, "Paradise Valley." Industry sources suggest the set could sell around 150,000 copies by the end of the tracking week on Aug. 25.
The new Billboard 200 chart's top 10 will be revealed on the morning of Aug. 28.
Mayer will likely be blocked from the top slot by reigning chart champ Luke Bryan's "Crash My Party." The album debuted at No. 1 this week with 528,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
