1 Days: Lady Sov To Fizzle, Birdman & Lil’ Wayne To Soar

Lady Sovereign 'Public Warning' album cover

According to HitsDailyDouble.com, Def Jam/IDJ’s highly touted U.K. rapper Lady Sovereign, signed by Jay-Z himself, is set to barely make it into the Top 50 on her debut effort ‘Public Warning’ with between 15-20k sales. At the other end of the chart will be Birdman & Lil’ Wayne with ‘Like Father, Like Son’, set to sell 175-190k, good enough to compete with Barry Manilow and ‘Hannah Montana’ for the top slot. No word about Kevin Federline’s ‘Playing with Fire’ from Hits, though Billboard’s Geoff Mayfield suggests he’ll be in the Lady Sov range of 20,000 units.
