The top of next week’s Billboard 200 will have little movement, as there is only one new album heading for a possible top 10 debut: Ne-Yo‘s Non-Fiction.

The R&B singer’s latest effort, released Jan. 27 on Motown
Records, has a chance of starting in the lower half of the top 10, with
perhaps 35,000-40,000 units earned in the week ending Feb. 1 (according
to industry forecasters). It would mark the entertainer’s sixth
consecutive top 10 album (his entirety of releases).

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the week’s most popular albums based on their overall consumption. That overall unit figure combines pure album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).

It’s expected that Taylor Swift’s 1989 will return to No. 1 for a 10th nonconsecutive week, making it just the 12th album in the Nielsen era (1991-present) to spend at least 10 weeks at No. 1.

The new Billboard 200’s top 10 will be revealed on Wednesday, Feb. 4.

Other albums heading for a high debut on next week’s chart (just not in the top 10) include Bethel Music‘s We Will Not Be Shaken, Papa Roach‘s F.E.A.R., George Ezra‘s Wanted on Voyage and Charlie Wilson‘s Forever Charlie.
