    if it is, its not because its a good album. its not that special and actually kind of bland. if it is ranked high it will be because it hit the streaming services 5 minutes after its release. i doubt anyone is actually buying it.

    Great talent, but I would be SHOCKED if it is even a ripple in the ocean of music that is out there these days.

    I seriously doubt it will be number 1, his target audience is greater than 60.

    I looked it up. Taylor has never had a number one album in his life. The highest his album has ever gotten to was #2 and that was in 1971. I seriously doubt this album will break the trend. His last few albums have gotten as high as #4 though. So it should be in the top 10.

    Billboard predicts it to be #1 next week. Not sure what else was released this week. These days you can sell 20.000 copies and be Number One if it's a slow week. If they're right, you know Howie will claim credit!

    No, it will be No. 1. A lot of older people buy instead of download so this is why you can get away w/ 60k in sales to take it to the top. Provided that Taylor Swift or a young
    poster doesn't have a release that wk. (Wow, she was named after him!) Anyway, it was enough if you heard the end of Mon. (or Tues?) show that Wiggy complained that he
    wanted to go to his concert that he was invited to, BUT HE HAD TO WORK THE FOLLOWING DAY AND SIRIUSXM WOULDN"T GIVE HIM THE NEXT DAY OFF since it would be
    a late night and he would need recovery time. Poor Blobbin and FaFaFlunky; they too couldn't do it either/same reason. (Exactly how many days does Wiggy get off instead of
    working a 5 day work wk?)

    maybe he has a track feat. Drake. A duet with Taylor swift. And some deadmau5 mix feat. Skrillex. All Howards' idea.

    I think if you sold 75,000 before Napster you didn't even make the Top 50. R.I.P The Music Industry.

    James Taylor Heading for His First No. 1 Album on Billboard 200

    Forty-five years after debuting on the Billboard 200 chart, James Taylor is set for his first No. 1 album. Industry forecasters suggest the singer/songwriter’s new studio effort, Before This World, could earn around 75,000 equivalent album units in the week ending June 21. The album is his first studio set since 2002’s October Road.

    The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based onmulti-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new Billboard 200’s top 10 will be revealed on Wednesday, June 24.

    Taylor has previously logged 11 top 10 albums, including seven top five efforts. His highest charting set thus far is 1971’s Mud Slide Slim and the Blue Horizon, which four weeks at No. 2 behind Carole King’s Tapestry album. (Taylor and King would later collaborate for the 2010 set Live at the Troubadour, which reached No. 4.)

    Other albums on course for significant debuts include Adam Lambert’s The Original High (which could do 35,000), Hilary Duff’s Breathe In. Breathe Out.(25,000) and Nate RuessGrand Romantic (25,000).

    Robin, James Tyler came on AGT, i never heard of him,old guy with a guitar.played nice sang well, however the guitar was in front of his penis so i couldnt see what he was measuring. I predict big things for him though.

    In the 70`s,75,000 copies would have entered top 200 around #25 or so.
