Top 15

TOP 15 GETS UNIDIRECTIONAL: In what will be the third-largest debut of the year (behind Taylor Swift and Mumford & Sons), One Direction will lead a Top 15 next week that could contain as many as 10 new releases. Here's how it looks headed into the weekend (not to be confused with The Weeknd):

* One Direction (Syco/Columbia) 535-560k
Taylor Swift (Big Machine) 140-150k
* The Weeknd (XO/Republic) 90-95k
* Soundgarden (Seven Four/Republic) 80-85k
Rod Stewart (Verve) 80-85k
* Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 (Chop Shop/Atlantic) 80-85k
* Christina Aguilera (RCA) 75-80k
* Lana Del Rey Paradise EP (Interscope) 70-75k
Now 44 (Capitol) 65-70k
* Deftones (Reprise) 60-65k
* Green Day (Reprise) 60-65k
Jason Aldean (Broken Bow) 35-40k
Mumford & Sons (Glassnote) 35-40k
* Susan Boyle (Syco/Columbia) 35-40k
* Whitney Houston (RCA) 35-40k

* Debuts

We hope this finally puts to rest any doubt about whether or not we can count to 15. Now stare deeply into the Amazon widget and repeat after us: "There's no time like Q4. There's no time like Q4 ... " (11/15p)
