Meanwhile, Troye Sivan and The Gaslight Anthem are heading for high chart debuts.
After jumping to No. 1 on the most recent Billboard 200 chart, the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack seems set for a second week at the top, according to forecasts from industry sources. The album topped the list reflecting the sales week ending Aug. 10, selling 109,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
That said, it's too early to tell how many copies the album might sell in the week ending Aug. 17. What we do know is that Guardians of the Galaxy should sell more than any of the new albums heading for top 10 debuts.
