Early Projections Have Lana Del Rey’s Debut at No. 2

The numbers aren't definite quite yet, but two days after the release of Lana Del Rey's Born to Die, "industry prognosticators" say the album is tracking for a No. 2 debut on the Billboard 200. (Next week's No. 1? Adele. Again. Know it.) Billboard's projections have Del Rey selling between 60,000 and 70,000 copies, while HITS Daily Double is reporting a more conservative 55,000 to 60,000 albums. Meanwhile, it looks like Lana will actually hit No. 1 on the British charts — so if you're tired of the hating or the Adele-ing, we hear London is lovely this time of year.
