It's a big week for Selena Gomez, who turned 21 on Monday and now will likely see her first No. 1 album in the days to come.

Billboard reports that industry insiders predict "Stars Dance," the singer's fourth album, will sell between between 90,000 and 100,000 copies in its first week. That figure will place it atop next week's Billboard 200 chart.

If these expectations hold true, "Stars Dance" will by far rank as Gomez's most successful album to date. Her previous effort, 2011's "When the Sun Goes Down," debuted at No. 4 after selling 78,000.

Gomez faces a relatively low-key competition slate that includes Marc Anthony's "3.0," The Winery Dogs' self-titled debut album and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros' self-titled third release. The new record's potential is catapulted by lead single "Come & Get It," which peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 and currently sits at No. 15.
