Weezer is on track to earn its ninth Top 10 album on the Billboard 200 album chart next week, following the release of its latest self-titled LP, also known as the “Teal Album.” The surprise collection of covers, which was issued unexpectedly by the band last week, is predicted to land in the Top 10 on next week’s chart with sales of around 35,000 equivalent album units. The number will represent tracking of the LP’s first full week of sales activity, since it came out on a Wednesday (January 23rd) and debuted at Number 47 on this week’s chart after just one day of sales. The 10-song collection includes renditions of Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This),” Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean,” Black Sabbath’s “Paranoid,” Tears For Fears’ “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” and of course, Toto’s “Africa.” Weezer’s cover of “Africa” became a huge hit last year, their biggest in years, and even inspired Toto to record its own take on Weezer’s 2001 hit “Hash Pipe.” Most of the covers on the “Teal Album” have been posted to Weezer’s YouTube channel. The next set of original Weezer music, the long-awaited “Black Album,” will be released on March 1st, 2019. The quartet’s 13th studio effort will follow up 2017’s Pacific Daydream, which was recently nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rock Album.
