X will be a big #1...
Ed Sheeran is expected to dominate the Billboard Charts next week. Billboard reports that Sheeran is expected to top the Billboard 200 album chart with his new LP X, which is on par to sell over 200,000 copies by Sunday. That would give Sheeran the largest pop album debut of the year and fourth-highest total opening week of 2014 behind Coldplay's Ghost Stories (383,000), Eric Church's The Outsiders (288,000) and Brantley Gilbert's Just As I Am (211,000).
Also set for a top ten debut is G-Eazy with his debut These Things Happen, which should sell around 45,000 for the #3 spot. Mastodon is looking to see around 25,000 for One More 'Round the Sun and Phish's Fuego should do about the same.
