Perhaps because of their proximity to the TRL studios, where the kids have been belting out “No One” pretty regularly, MTV News seems to be under the impression that Alicia Keys’ out-today As I Am will top next week’s album charts. But that seems curious to me, given that a certain hypnotic French-Canadian diva with a big Vegas show is releasing her first English-language album in four years today. Further confusing the issue: both albums feature Linda Perry-penned songs, although sadly, Celine Dion’s album does not feature her chest-pounding take on “What’s Up.” (Maybe next time!) Anyway, it’s not 50 Cent-Kanye, but this skirmish has, at the very least, provided fodder for a good old-fashioned “which album will be No. 1 next week” poll:
