We will know more next wednesday...usually hitsdaily will give an indication about the US album chart...

Blake Shelton and Lady Antebellum are tough competitors...especially Blake...

But Prince had some high profile tv appearances, too.....Unfortunately in the last months or years

( Kimmel, Fallon, Billboard awards, new girl)... wink

I have to admit i am a bit surprised about the lack of promotion right now...

No radio single, no video, no tv appearances....

But to say this will be all for the album from Warner and Prince would be a bit to early...

At least Top 3 in the US is possible and number one in the UK smile for AOA....

Amazon.com, for the release on September, 30 :

#16 : Lucinda Williams (previous album on billboard: #15 )

#35 : Blake Shelton (previous album : # 1 )

#36 : Lady Antebellum (previous album #1)

#40 : AOA (previous album #2)

#70 : Melissa Etheridge (previous album #18)

#76 : PE (previous album on another name : RAVE, at #18 )

So, my take is the following for the future charts on 1st week stay unchanged :

#1 Lady Antebellum

#2 Blake Shelton

#3 AOA

#4 Lucinda Williams

#5 melissa Etheridge

#6 PE

And PR and the Very best of in the top 200.

Amazon.com, for the release on September, 30 :

#11 (+5) : Lucinda Williams (previous album on billboard: #15 )

#28 (+12) : AOA (previous album #2)

#33 (+2): Blake Shelton (previous album : # 1 )

#34 (+2) : Lady Antebellum (previous album #1)

#48 (+28) : PE (previous album on another name : RAVE, at #18 )

#57 (-13) : Melissa Etheridge (previous album #18)

So, until tomorrow and unless the Prince's progession continues, my take is the following for the future charts on 1st week :

#1 Lady Antebellum

#2 Blake Shelton

#3 AOA

#4 Lucinda Williams

#5 PE

Goodbye Melissa Etheridge

And PR and the Very best of in the top 200.

PE may not be top 5, as Kenny Chesney's new album might sell more in its second week than PE does in its first (although his last album underperformed, so who knows). Since LF was trumped in '09 by Keith Urban, Prince needs to avoid big release weeks for country artists!

I didn't take into account the Gaga/Benett release this week too, currently at #2 on amazon. If it's a surprise success, AOA and PE might chart even lower.

I dont think PE is gonna debut in the Top 5, Top 10 most likely but again its gonna depend on how the other albums already out perform week 2 etc...so saying AOA will come in 2 or 3 might be off too, though most likely will

Plectrumelectrum: 110 (6th in R&B and Soul)

.

Why are they putting Plectrumelectrum in the R&B and soul genre? Surely that should be Art Official Age.

A lot of record shops classify Purple Rain as Soul/R'n'B. It's not easy with prince albums, they're a mixed bag of styles.

[Edited 8/29/14 10:57am]

Like Ludwig said, Prince is not an easy artist to catagorize when it comes to stocking his catalogue in a record store. I think they go with the Soul/R&B tag because as a general rule, I guess most people consider Prince to be Soul/R&B more than any of the other genres, as is other black artists such as Stevie Wonder and Lenny Kravitz. Kravitz suffers a similar fate to a lesser degree of Prince. Both artist fluctuate between R&B, Rock, Funk, Soul and in the case of Prince, occasionally Jazz. But I think in most cases, people would consider Prince a Soul/R&B artist.

I'm still blown away that WB didn't push to get some air play. AOA is full of some mainstream material, with Prince delivering it as only he can. What kinda deal did they sign, that virtually no promotional work was done for this album?

This is gonna be another Gold Experience. Great album, with no proper WB push. I know they werent seeing eye to eye Prince at that time, but it was a HUGE mistake to disregard The Gold Experience. Appears they're dropping the ball once again.

Warners wanted to promote TGE aggressively,but it was Prince who was playing games.He shot a video for the first single "I Hate U",but refused to give it to Warners.I don't know what's going on with the promotion of the new albums,but I'm willing to bet that Prince,for whatever reason,is the one who's refusing to cooperate again.
