Billboard have predicted that 'Closer To The Truth' will debut at #3 on next week's Billboard 200 chart; "Believe it or not, Cher is on course for her highest-charting solo album ever. The diva's new effort, Closer To The Truth, is aiming for a No. 3 debut with around 65,000. She has never gone higher than No. 4 with her solo albums - reaching that peak with both Believe in 19999 and The Very Best of Cher in 2003. (As one half of Sonny & Cher, she only went higher once - with 1965's No. 2-peaking Look At Us. It was stuck in the runner-up slot for eight weeks behind the Beatles' Help!)
