The teen pop singer and the country duo are head to head for a battle to take the top spot on the U.S. albums chart next week, with the pop star is currently leading the way with a slight margin.
Teen pop star, Miley Cyrus' new album "Breakout" is on its way to top the album chart next week after its sale leads the way with 110,000 units sold. But to take the Billboard Hot 200 chart won't be an easy task for Miley, as another contender Sugarland is sneaking just behind her.
According to Nielsen SoundScan, the country duo's deluxe edition of "Love on the Inside" has already sold about 108,000 copies. Moreover, the group's label through their executive VP of sales, marketing and new media, Ben Kline believes that Sugarland's new outing will sell about 300,000 units on its first week.
Meanwhile, speaking about Miley's new album, the singer's label GM, Abbey Konowitch also hopes that the pop star's new LP, will keep increasing in these next few days. Abbey added that the teen idol has been preparing a pack of promotion schedule to ensure the new record's success. One of the promos that the singer will be doing is performing at the "Today" show on Friday (July 25).
Not only commenting about his artist, Abbey also said his support to his competitor's new record saying, "It's really exciting to see two albums at the top of the chart selling multiple hundreds of thousands of units with all of the talk of the shrinking market."
