WEEK IN PREVIEW: IDOL WORSHIP!

Kelly Clarkson Bests Rap’s Hottest in Easter Weekend Sell-A-Thon
On a day in which Monica Lewinsky co-hosts The View and debuts as host of her very own Fox reality series, Mr. Personality, we have something far less scandalous but every bit as titillating to report:

It now appears American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson is a winner twice, as her debut release, Thankful (RCA), heads toward #1 on this week’s Album Chart. Indeed, the TV-bred starlet’s album looks like it will have sold around 300k when the counting’s done, thanks to a huge Easter weekend for the parent-friendly pop collection.

That’s enough to top hot rapper 50 Cent, whose The New Breed DVD-plus-CD package (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope), released just two months after his debut, Get Rich or Die Tryin’, should come in at over 250k.

Other titles hitting the chart include Fleetwood Mac’s Say You Will (WB) and country star/patriot Darryl Worley’s Have You Forgotten (DreamWorks), each of which appears on track to pass the 150k mark. Jimmy Buffet’s Meet Me in Margaritaville hits collection (UTV), meanwhile, will easily come in at over 125k, while Pete Yorn’s aggressively priced Day I Forgot looks like it’ll do 70k or better.

As for radio, here’s how the probable Most-Added tracks will likely break down at your favorite formats this week:

Top 40: It’s all about T.A.T.U.’s "Not Gonna Get Us" (Interscope) and The Troys’ "What Do You Do" (Elektra), with clean up on the aforementioned Clarkson’s "Miss Independent" (RCA), Jewel’s "Intuition" (Atlantic) and Third Eye Blind’s "Blinded (When I See You)" (Elektra).

Crossover: Watch out for Latif’s "I Don’t Want to Hurt You" (Motown/Universal) and Smilez & Southstar’s "Now That You’re Gone" (ArtistDirect). Also expect movement on Solange’s "Crush" (Columbia) and possibly early action on R. Kelly’s "Snake" (Jive), and Kiley Dean’s "Make Me a Song" (Beat Club/Interscope), as there’s much love in evidence for both right now.

PoMo: The Deftones’ "Minerva" (Maverick/Reprise) will probably best Radiohead’s "There There" (Capitol).
