- Arcade Fire's "The Suburbs" is set to debut atop the Billboard charts, selling 156,000 copies in its opening week and narrowly edging out Eminem for the No. 1 spot. The big number was no doubt helped by the $3.99 download price offered all week by Amazon.com, an increasingly common tactic these days. It is the first chart-topping album for indie stalwart Merge Records in its 20+ years, and the news was broken last night on Twitter by label and tourmates Spoon

- Young Jeezy is denying claims that a song from his upcoming mixtape is a swipe at Rick Ross. "Death Before Dishonor" is featured on "1000 Grams, Vol. 1," which will be released Thursday afternoon. Still no word on his full-length, "Thug Motivation 103."

- "American Idol" season three winner Fantasia Barrino is recovering in a North Carolina hospital after a possible suicide attempt.
