Pearl Jam to Top Next Week's American Charts; McCartney Could Be as High as Number 3

The assault of the veteran artists on the U.S. Album chart will continue next week with Pearl Jam's Lightning Bolt a lock for the top of the charts.

Experts are predicting that the new album would sell between 170,000 and 180,000 copies by the end of Sunday, outselling Miley Cyrus by around 100,000. It will be the band's sixth number 1 to go along with four additional albums that peaked at number 2. 2002's Riot Act is the only album by the band that did not reach the top two, peaking at number 5.

It is also looking like Paul McCartney will open at number 3 with New, selling in the area of 70 to 75,000 copies.  It would equal his 2012 set Kisses on the Bottom.

Also looking strong is Willie Nelson who is predicted to sell between 35,000 and 40,000 copies of To All the Girls, placing him at or just below number 10.

Final charts will be released on Thursday.
