Hits Magazine has posted their weekly “One-day sales” forecast and here’s what they had to say about this week’s releases and how they see them finishing on the charts next week.

It’s the fourth quarter, and apparently everyone’s expecting Michael Jackson to save the day.

And while we have to wait until next Monday for the “companion” to the superstar’s much-anticipated This Is It concert documentary, Chop Shop/Atlantic’s The Twilight Saga: New Moon appears to be the front-runner to land at #1 in its first full week on the HITS Album sales chart.

Meanwhile, Curb country superstar Tim McGraw’s latest, Southern Voice, appears headed for a first-week debut in the 95-105k range, based on one-day sales reports from those few retailers who haven’t flown away in a balloon yet, certainly a lock for Top 3, depending on how this week’s chart-topping Reprise album from Michael Buble does in its second full week in stores.

Virgin/EMI soul chanteuse Joss Stone’s latest, Colour Me Free, which will come out as a Target/iTunes exclusive after her well-publicized wrangling with her label, looks to be in the 25-30k range.
