Don Henley and George Strait in Close Fight For Top Selling Album of the Week

When the new Billboard Top 200 Albums are released next Tuesday, either Don Henley or George Strait will have the biggest selling album.

Of course, in this new era of individual digital tracks and streaming, that doesn't mean that they will have the number 1 album, but they will have the biggest sellers. According to mid-week projections by Hits Daily Double, both albums are tracking towards 75,000 to 80,000 in sales, more than any other artists. Their closest competitors include Fetty Wap, Thomas Rhett and Drake & Future.

The projected top selling albums for the week:
  1. Cass County - Don Henley (75,000 to 80,000)
  2. Cold Beer Conversation - George Strait (75,000 to 80,000)
  3. Fetty Wap - Fetty Wap (68,000 to 73,000)
  4. Tangled Up - Thomas Rhett (65,000 to 70,000)
  5. What a Time to Be Alive - Drake & Future (60,000 to 65,000)
  6. Beauty Behind the Madness - The Weeknd (30,000 to 35,000)
Of course, once you add streaming in, the list changes considerably:
  1. Fetty Wap - Fetty Wap (115,000 to 120,000)
  2. What a Time to Be Alive - Drake & Future (90,000 to 100,000)
  3. Cold Beer Conversation - George Strait (78,000 to 83,000)
  4. Cass County - Don Henley (77,000 to 82,000)
  5. Tangled Up - Thomas Rhett (75,000 to 80,000)
  6. Beauty Behind the Madness - The Weeknd (67,000 to 72,000)
Strait's album is selling exceptionally well despite it being available only at Wal-Mart and via Apple Music.

Final positions will be announced by Billboard on Monday with the charts being released on Tuesday.
