Half the numbers are in at HitsDailyDouble.com, and Beyonce Knowles of Destiny’s Child will easily take the #1 spot on next week’s Billboard album chart. So far, over 200,000 copies of her debut album ‘Dangerously in Love’ have been sold and accounted for. Once the rest of the numbers come in tomorrow, the album could claim as much as 400,000 copies sold. Meanwhile, Michelle Branch will likely settle for the #2 spot. Her new album ‘Hotel Paper’ has moved 100,000 copies so far and may reach 200,000. The ‘Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle’ soundtrack just may crack the top 10. And newcomer Lumidee is getting major help from the Streetsweeper remix to her song ‘Never Leave,’ which is helping her album ‘Almost Famous’ to move about 50,000 copies and possibly debut in the top 25. The Black Eyed Peas latest effort ‘Elephunk’ will barely debut in the top 30, moving about 40,000 copies for the week. Three Six Mafia and Gang Starr will also have healthy debuts.
