Not much competition for that #1 spot. That B.I.G. greatest hits album might move some units though. I'm guessing 70,000 units.

Dave Park

72,300

Phil B

72,349 EXACTLY!

Austin L. Ray

I don't know, apparently the Stooges' new album was moved up to be released today instead of the 20th, wasn't it? That might be competition.I'm going to say 58,000.

One dollar! Wait. Oops.The competition this week is shite. Except for the Air record. And if there was any justice in this world Consequence would triple the sales of the B.I.G. So if the Shins sold over 100,000 without Dave Park posting about them every day then they would have to sell more than them, right? And does the special edition and all of that **** count? I don't know but I will say:103,666 copies.And, of course, I am just playing with you Mr. Park. Kinda. Because I know you probably will buy the 666 copies for all of your friends and relatives. Bible jokes. Hill. Air. E. Us!

The Shins sold 118,000 copies their first week. I don't think AF can pull off those kinds of numbers though. Still, I say they'll hit 107,000 copies sold.

imitation is the highest form of compliment =)

89k is my prediction. I hope it exceeds that, though. Some industry "experts" are saying that their big competition for the week is actually Relient K's new album. I guess Christian poprock still has a large enough audience, because some are saying they'll hit 100k. I'll believe it when I see it.

Brett

I don't think they're ripping us off. It's just an album sales prediction contest

Dave Park

dave plays all coy, but he's already contacted johnnie cochrane.

Melissa

Dave, what was the answer?

China

p-fork is saying 92K.

Mike Krolak

According to Billboard it sold 92,000 copies and debuted at #2. Some long dead and way overrated hip-hop dude took the number one spot and sold 99,000 copies.

Josh H.

[...] for the band and all that, but I’m betting all most Prefix readers care about is who won our little contest. Well by my unofficial count, that would be Mike, who was only a scant 700 copies off. So, [...]
