Rihanna On Pace To Outsell Nelly

Posted By on November 18, 2010

      Rihanna's new "Loud" album is reportedly on track to outsell rapper Nelly's new "5.0" record by anywhere up to 130,000 units. Based on one-day sales estimates, both albums should debut in the top 10 next week.

Rihanna's fifth Def Jam/IDJ album, Loud, will debut with between 180-190k, followed by Rascal Flatts' Big Machine debut, Nothing Like This, is earmarked for between 170-180k. Atlantic's Kid Rock returns with Born Free, his follow-up to the triple-platinum Rock N Roll Jesus, which is just behind that trio in the 160-170k range. Universal Motown's Nelly album, 5.0, should be in the 55-60k range. (HITS Daily Double)
