TURN IT UP TUESDAY: What’s New In Stores This Week (July 23)

"Get it" together, girl.

A balloon ride to the top.

It’s a week that’s simply Selegendary in the eyes on some music fans. Here’s your releases report from the world of Disney and beyond for the week of July 23:

  • Stars Dance is the first solo album for Selena Gomez without her band The Scene. With a #1 pop radio hit in “Come & Get It” and an album chalk full of big singles, there’s no doubt that this will be big. Question is, will it be #1, or will Jay Z hold onto the top spot for a third week? Gomez could just edge him out. (iTunes)
  • Dancing his way into stores is Marc Anthony with 3.0, his first album in three years and his first salsa genre album in over a decade. The first single is “Vivir Mi Vida” (“To Live My Life”). (iTunes)
  • The soundtrack from the Smurfs 2 is in shops today. It features the recent single by Britney Spears, “Ooh La La”. (iTunes)
  • He’s known for songs like “Best Song Ever” and “Good 4 It”; now, the second full-length album for California’s Wallpaper., Ricky Reed Is Real, is out. (iTunes)
  • If you’re a fan of the Smashing Pumpkins, their 1996 box set, The Aeroplane Flies High, is being reissued this week. The original release had five discs; this has an added six album of live cuts and an additional DVD. (iTunes)
  • Other albums out this week include Creole Soul by Etienne Charles (iTunes), My Favorite Picture Of You by Guy Clark (iTunes) and a self-titled album by the Winery Dogs (iTunes).
