Jack White Poised to Take No. 1 Spot From Lionel Richie on Hot 200


The former frontman of The White Stripes is predicted to rule the chart by selling 100,000 to 120,000 copies of 'Blunderbuss'.

Jack White is bound to enter high at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 200 next week. The former lead singer of The White Stripes is predicted to knock Lionel Richie off the top spot, and to block Lee Brice and The Wanted from ruling the chart.

He's expected to make the big debut with his solo debut album "Blunderbuss". The CD is estimated to sell around 100,000 to 120,000 copies in its first week on sale. If the final result meets the expectation, the effort will mark White's first-ever chart topper.

Throughout his career as a member of The White Stripes, The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather, White scored a total of seven top 10 albums. His highest peak on the chart was posted through The White Stripes' 2007 album "Icky Thump", which bowed at No. 2.

On Hot 200 this week, meanwhile, Richie rules for two weeks in a row with his star-studded country crossover album "Tuskegee". The Motown artist holds off his strong rival Jason Mraz from topping the list by shifting another 114,000 copies.

Aside from Jack White's "Blunderbuss", other new releases which are predicted to make a notable entry on Hot 200 next week include "Hard 2 Love" (Lee Brice), "The Wanted" (The Wanted) and "Up All Night" (Kip Moore).
