Glee star Lea Michele has just released her first solo album, Louder, and the release is aiming for a spot in the top ten on the Billboard charts.
Billboard reported that in the first week of sales, the album is likely to sell 50,000 to 60,000 copies, which could place Louder in the top five for album sales on the Billboard charts.
Michele has been on the Billboard charts before as part of the Glee cast and on the soundtrack for the Broadway musical Spring Awakening.
The Glee cast has had 22 albums on the Billboard charts, with three of them going all the way to the No. 1 spot.
Louder is a very personal album for Lea Michele and the singer even opens up about the loss of her co-star and real life boyfriend, Cory Monteith, on the track "If You Say So."
Looking to take the No. 1 spot this week on the chart is rapper Rick Ross with his new album Mastermind, which is likely to sell between 150,000 to 160,000 copies in its first week released.
The Philly reported that Mastermind features a variety of collaborations include Jay-Z, Kanye West and Pharrell Williams.
