Fans can’t stop getting “Hooked on a Feeling”…
It looks like music fans cannot stop getting "Hooked on a Feeling" by the Guardians of the Galaxy movie soundtrack. Billboard reports that the official soundtrack is poised to hit the No. 1 slot for its second week next week.
The album topped the sales chart for the week ending August 10 with about 109,000 copies sold. It is still too early for industry forecasters to estimate how many copies the soundtrack could sell for the week ending August 17. However, the Guardians soundtrack is expected to sell more than any of the new albums due out this week. The new top 10 will be announced on Wednesday (August 20).
Other new releases due out this week for significant debuts include Troye Sivan's TRXYE EP and Gaslight Anthem's Get Hurt. Both albums are estimated to sell in the range of 30,000 to 35,000 copies.
