A huge fourth quarter.

Looks like Taylor Swift will get to enjoy being No. 1 for one week.

It’s going to be a HUGE fourth quarter. Sam Smith will release The Thrill Of It All on Nov. 3. The following week belongs to Taylor Swift. She’ll unleash Reputation on Nov. 10, which was poised to top the charts for the rest of the year. That will no longer happen.

Word on the street is that Eminem is planning to release his forthcoming ninth studio album, a followup to 2013’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2, on Nov. 17. That’s some serious competition for Swifty. Eminem typically debuts with MASSIVE numbers, so expect him to block the pop star from a Billboard 200 reign.

It appears we won’t have to wait long for new tunes from Em. Pink’s collaboration with the rapper on a track called “Revenge” off her forthcoming album, Beautiful Trauma, is thought to debut this Friday (October 13).

Get your credit cards out, ladies. It’s going to be a pricey couple of months.
