Taylor Swift's 'Red' Going for Third Week at No. 1, Sells 344,000 Second Week

After breaking record sales last week, Taylor Swift's newest album "Red" still stays atop the Billboard 200 chart in its second week as it pulls in sales of 344,000 more copies. The number adds to the album's already impressive selling number of 1.208 million copies, which is the largest sales for an album in its debut week since 2002.

Industry forecasters suggest that the album will spend a third straight week atop the Billboard 200 chart next week, fending off new releases from Aerosmith and Ne-Yo, as well as the new "Now 44" compilation.

The new Billboard 200 chart's top 10 will be revealed on the morning of Wednesday, Nov. 14.

"Now 44" looks to be the biggest of this week's new releases -- it's on course for a start around 100,000. While it's too early to tell exactly how many copies of "Red" Swift will sell this week, it should be enough to block "Now 44" from the top.

The last "Now" album, "Now 43," debuted at No. 1 in August with 111,000 sold according to Nielsen SoundScan.

After the "Now 44" set, we're looking towards returning rock band Aerosmith to lock up the second-largest debut. The veteran act's "Music From Another Dimension" should launch with around 75,000. It's the first album from the group since 2004's blues covers effort "Honkin' On Bobo" debuted and peaked at No. 5 in 2004 with a 161,000 start. Thus, the new album is Aerosmith's first set of original material since way back in 2001, when "Just Push Play" bowed (and peaked) at No. 2 (240,000).

Elsewhere next week, watch for R&B/pop singer/songwriter Ne-Yo to paint the chart "R.E.D." with his newest. It should secure the artist his fifth consecutive top 10 set (his entire output of material) with a bow in the 50,000 to 55,000 range.

I know, it's just for very specific anxiety attacks as I didn't want to take anything daily, but still I have them a couple of times a week. I've been really reluctant to go on medication and have tried to work it out through other means, so maybe she's just being careful. I got to a breaking point though and was just like fuck it I want drugs for this but I don't want to take something everyday can you give me something I can take in the moment?

I have horrible insomnia too, have my whole life, so I just took 1/4 of one and I'm about to pass out. It's very nice.
