YOUR TOP 15: Taylor Swift will remain on top for at least one more week, after which she’ll be unseated, even if temporarily, by One Direction. We get the distinct impression, however, that this won’t be the last time our Tay is #1 this year. Here’s how it looks headed into the weekend.

Taylor Swift (Big Machine) 300-325k
*Foo Fighters (Roswell/RCA) 185-200k
*Pink Floyd (Columbia) 155-170k
*Garth Brooks (Pearl/RCA Nashville) 120-130k
*Big K.R.I.T. (Def Jam) 40-45k (HITS Daily Double)
