Demi Lovato is set to make a splash on next week’s album charts…
The 20-year-old part-Mexican American singer/actress and returning The X Factor judge released her fourth studio effort, Demi, last week, with the album expected to debut at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Lovato’s album is projected to sell about 110,000 copies by the end of the tracking week on Sunday, May 19, according to industry sources. Should the numbers hold up, it would be the best sales week of her career.
Lovato’s last album, 2011’s Unbroken, debuted at No. 4 with 96,000. She previously opened at No. 1 with her sophomore set, Here We Go Again, in 2009 (108,000 in its debut). Her first album, 2008’s Don’t Forget, debuted and peaked at No. 2 off an 89,000 launch.
The No. 1 position next week will likely be owned by Vampire Weekend‘s Modern Vampires of the City, with perhaps 130,000 copies sold. The No. 2 stop is expected to go to George Strait’s latest album with sales of 120,000.
The new Billboard 200 chart will be revealed on Wednesday, May 22.
