Alicia Keys Up For Strongest R&B Debut of 2009 ?

Alicia Keys may not be able to top reining Billboard 200 chart-topper Susan Boyle, but the “Doesn’t Mean Anything” singer could make the year’s top R&B debut on next week’s charts. According to sales projections revealed late Wednesday, Keys’ latest effort “The Element of Freedom” is on tap to sell upwards of 350,00 copies! While the year has been filled with releases from award-winning artists including Whitney Houston, Keri Hilson, and Mariah Carey, Keys’ first week totals could put her on top of, if nothing else, the R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart next week. While Keys’ success is great news, sources say Susan Boyle will likely end up being certified double Platinum next week, garnering the no.1 spot and another 500,000 copies sold of her debut “I Dreamed A Dream.”
