Frozen expected to top out chart again…
Billboard reports that classical crossover artist Lindsey Stirling will likely have the highest debut on next week's Billboard 200 chart. Her new album, Shatter Me, is estimated to sell between 50,000 to 70,000 copies by the end of the tracking week on Sunday, May 4.
The album was independently distributed and follows her self-titled debut set, which was released in 2012 and has sold 321,000 copies. If the album sells over 50,000 copies, it would give Stirling her biggest sales week yet.
The soundtrack for Disney's Frozen is expected to nail the No. 1 spot again next week. Industry forecasters believe Frozen will mark a higher sales tally for this week than Shatter Me.
Ray LaMontagne's new album Supernova is also expected to make a high debut with around 40,000 copies sold.
