The musical “Merry Go ‘Round” keeps swinging this summer, as two lovely ladies of different genres and a band of heavy hitters sit at the top of the stack this week. Here are the albums and singles that are new in stores for the week of June 23:
- Though her leadoff release “Biscuits” struggled into the 40’s on the Country radio chart, fans of singer/songwriter Kacey Musgraves will make sure that her latest album will go much higher than that on the Billboard 200. The title of the set is Pageant Material, and it’s bound to be a good seller, especially at digital outlets. We’ll see if #1 is in reach soon. (iTunes)
- Currently climbing the pop radio chart with her second single, “Should’ve Been Us”, 22-year-old Tori Kelly is out with a debut album this week, Unbreakable Smile. It also features the recent hit and iHeartMedia On The Verge choice “Nobody Love”. It’ll likely debut in the top ten and possibly the top five next week. (iTunes)
- With their first studio album in nearly six years, Pennsylvania rockers Breaking Benjamin are searching for their third top ten album in a row with Dark Before Dawn, featuring the recent Active Rock radio chart-topper “Failure”. Catch them on the road beginning next week. (iTunes)
