According to Billboard, “Thank Me Later,” is poised to be one of 2010’s top-selling albums.

By music industry prognosticators, Drake’s debut full-length studio album “Thank Me Later,” which was released on Tuesday (June 15), is projected to sell in the range of 425,000 to 475,000 — if not more — by week’s end on June 20. If it moves as much as sources think, it’ll mark one of the biggest sales weeks of the year for a single album.

Drake’s album release occurs two weeks after it was illegally leaked online, having gave fans a two week advantage to have it for free before it came out for purchase. For such a leak to occur, and still bring in such high numbers, is remarkable for a debut album.

It’s been discussed multiple times already, but it seems as though the Jonas brand is starting to fade even more. Besides a ‘failed’ television show, below expected movie turn-out, performing on an un-sold out tour, it seems as though now the decline is making it’s way to the Jonas Brothers album sales.

 The Examiner looks into the situation further, determining: ‘It could end up only selling 70,000 copies this week and that would be a steep decline from first week sales. The Jonas Brothers are in the middle of a successful tour. These days, concert ticket sales earn far more than album sales. The band isn’t going to go broke anytime soon. However, with the poor sales of this album, their brand may be fading.’

Do you think Jonas acceptance of losing their core fan base in search of an older audience is hurting them more than helping them?
