After a nearly 15 year absence from the top of the Billboard 200, Shania Twain is proving after all this time she’s still the one.
Thanks to a host of physical pre-orders and some handsome digital download early reads, industry analysts are predicting her fifth studio album, ‘Now,’ will be bowing at #1 when the album charts refresh week after next. The set – despite not seeing any of its singles impact the Billboard Hot 100 – is on track to sell DOUBLE the amount of its nearest competitors’, Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato‘s, new album inaugural figures.
This, even though both of the young singers’ albums had top 20 singles to precede them…
‘Now’ First Week Sales: 121-132k SPS, 120-130k pure album sales
Predicted Chart Placement: #1
Elsewhere on the prediction tally, Lovato’s ‘Tell Me You Love Me’ expected to move anywhere between 68-78k SPS while Cyrus’ ‘Younger Now’ is set to land somewhere between the 40-55k SPS mark.
Tamar Braxton’s final album, ‘Bluebird of Happiness,‘ is projected soar onto the Billboard 200 with less than 12k SPS.
Keep in mind the figures above are only projections and can be revised at any point before the final tally arrives on Friday, October 6th. Best of luck to all the ladies!
