Michael Jackson & Black Keys Fighting For #1 Album Next Week

They're in a dead heat...
Michael Jackson and the Black Keys are both aiming for the top spot on the Billboard charts. Billboard reports that Jackson's Xscape and the Keys' Turn Blue are both aiming to see between 150,000 and 155,000 copies by week's end, putting them both in contention for the #1 position on the Billboard 200. Those numbers have been adjusted up from early projections of 140,000 for Xscape and 150,000 for Turn Blue.
This would be the first #1 album for the Keys (Camino bowed at #2 in 2011) and the seventh for Jackson. The results will be revealed on Wednesday.
