Thanks to their epic win at the Grammy Awards last weekend, it appears that Mumford & Sons ’ Babel will once again top the Billboard 200 albums chart next week.

Babel , which picked up the Album of the Year trophy, could sell 150,000 copies by Sunday securing it the #1 spot on the list, Billboard is reporting.  Topping the Billboard 200 albums chart is nothing new for the band as Babel dominated the tally for three weeks straight after it was released last year.

Mumford had already gotten a boost from their performance on Grammy telecast earlier this week after they moved up from #7 to #4 on the Billboard 200, selling 54,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. 

But Mumford isn’t the only rock act expected to get a significant bump in sales next week: fun. ’s Some Nights and The Lumineers ’ self-titled album are both projected to move 70,000 copies each.
