Whitney Houston Expected to Top Billboard Charts

Whitney Houston's "I Look To You" is expected to top the pop charts this week, according to Billboard analysts.

The diva is on pace to sell over 200,000 copies this week of her new album… her first in seven years.

She's competing with a new EP from Miley Cyrus, "The Time Of Our Lives" – a Wal-Mart exclusive initially set for release this week, but that dropped last Friday instead, selling 62,000 copies to enter the Billboard 200 at No. 3 on the current chart. Although early sales may hurt Miley's numbers for this week.

Whitney's last album, 2002's "Just Whitney," entered the charts at No. 9 with 205,000 copies sold, on par with her expected numbers for "I Look To You."
