After his new "Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" album easily racked up the number one spot on the charts during its debut week, the second week of sales could be a problem for the hit rapper slash producer. Not only will Kanye have to fight off urban competition with new albums by the Black Eyed Peas, Jazmine Sullivan and even Chrisette Michelle, but he could lose his number one spot to singer Susan Boyle and her "Gift."
Based on one-day sales, it's looking like the two main albums Kanye will have to face is The Black Eyed Peas' new "The Beginning" album, along with the tv-related "Glee Cast Volume 4." Both albums are currently on track to sell around 110-125k, but that won't be enough to bother the number one album, which as of now seems to be Ms. Boyle. For 2nd place on the charts next week, it will be a simple battle between Kanye and Nicki Minaj.
