The Predictions Are In! Pink Set To Open Big With ‘Beautiful Trauma’

Published: Saturday 14th Oct 2017 by Sam

Yesterday saw Pink unleash her seventh studio album ‘Beautiful Trauma.’

And with a full day’s worth of sales tallied, it’s become clear that the project’s opening numbers will be far from traumatic.

Full story below…

According to Hits Daily Double, the set (led by single ‘What About Us’) will comfortably open at #1 on the Billboard 200. It is on-course to premiere with:

300,000-375,000
[Sales-Plus-Streaming]

***********
290,000-340,000
[Pure Sales]

Should the set land within this region, it’ll serve as the fourth-largest debut of the year thus far. ‘Trauma ‘will also snatch 2017’s largest opening week for a female act. Additionally, it’ll be the star’s highest debut ever and her second Billboard album #1.

Some may wonder how the numbers are so high given the lack of preceding smash in the US [see: the #25 peak of ‘What About Us’]. Well, the LP is smartly being bundled with tickets for Pink’s recently announced tour.

Now, before the shade brigade rain on her parade, ticket holders still have to manually redeem their download. Hence, from where we’re standing, their desire to consume the music is on-par with those who bought the album standalone. Put simply, it’s a masterstroke move in a climate where sales are on the wane. Only a few power players can pull it off – and it’s apparent Pink is one of them.

  2. Music lover October 14, 2017

    • EBookbook October 14, 2017

      They didnt its still gets radio spins on the regular

  3. NT October 14, 2017

    She deserves it.

  4. Jerry October 14, 2017

    I think it all comes down to artist personalities too. P!nks personality is so on point, she’s funny, nice, and incredibly blunt. She brings life to interviews and always has kick ass live performances.

  5. Fancy BISH October 14, 2017

    Are you serious?!! Damn P!nk! Anything opening at 300,000 or more in this climate is absolutely amazing

  6. JOHNVIDAL October 14, 2017

    Around 300k real copies is very surprising. We´ll see the final numbers. But with no hits I expected way less this go around.

    • Fancy BISH October 14, 2017

      Yep, I forgot to say 300,000 pure sales

  7. Bam October 14, 2017

    Continuing to prove shes on that boss status. That said the album should’ve been much better, I was a bit let down.

  8. Boytoy1814 October 14, 2017

    LOVE Pink!!! Girl can sing & do acrobats @ the same time!
    When Beyonce gonna do it??!!

    • Yes October 14, 2017

      The fact that you mentioned Beyonce, means she is, and will always be that QUEEN. Stay pressed you dolt.

  9. Ari October 14, 2017

    That speech she made at the VMAs will forever be imprinted in my memory. She deserves all the success she’s getting.

  10. eric October 14, 2017

    I think the “free” album is for tickets purchased through Ticket Master’s verified fan process. I bought tickets the normal way and received no link to download the album. Of course it really isn’t free when you consider tickets are more than twice the cost of Pink’s tour only 4 years ago. Lots of fans are upset.

  11. DanYiel Iman October 14, 2017

    That’s awesome 👏🏽

  12. Chad Fourie October 14, 2017

    The fact that P!nk is achieving these numbers / her highest first week sales – 17 years into her career! In a streaming / piracy era proves she had the right formula from day one!!! Her sound is consistent and as her fans grew, she did. Because she kept her core fan base and gained new ones over the years.

  13. Whoops October 14, 2017

    This is good. This is why streaming or “people don’t buy music” is not an excuse for an artist not selling.

    • Belladonna October 15, 2017

      Oh it is but pinks fans are so old they don’t stream. But I do agree if you make people have to have it they will come out. But I say if your a pop act don’t put your sh*t on Streaming platforms until after 4months.

  14. Karamel October 14, 2017

    Congratulations P

  15. Karamel October 14, 2017

    Congratulations P!nk!!!!! Well deserved. I have always loved her music.

  16. Crookly October 14, 2017

    It will go no where just like her previous records.

    • XYZ October 15, 2017

      The ones that sold millions?

  17. Fashion Icon October 14, 2017

    She’s white …

  18. steve October 15, 2017

    She’s smart.

  19. Theman October 15, 2017

    She would have still sold around or near 200k without the bundles. This is huge! She is incredible, her personality is incredible, she is a great singer, performer, entertainer and ect.. She is just all around great…. And her song is almost a top ten hit on pop radio.. Also, most of her fans are getting the hard copy of her album..

  20. Gee October 15, 2017

    Congratulations to Pink her continued formula for her success is she stays consistent with her sound and her fans continue to come along for the journey with her. As the old saying goes if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.

  21. mr.m October 15, 2017

    Hmmmm thats really wired .. I expected her to flop hard tbh
    I don’t see her having a hard US fan base AT ALL …..
    I think the FREE album for tickets purchased for her tour helped
    anyhow .. lets see how many copies she’ll sell next week ,, bye bish

    • XYZ October 15, 2017

      What on the other hand still means that people buy her tour tickets…

      • mr.m October 15, 2017

        yeah! that’s another story
        seein’ a performer live is so different from buyin’ his/her album
        I can go to watch lady gaga live, but did I bought Joanne? … nope
        that same thing with many many many artists
        I know they can give me a good show
        We go there to have fun and escape from reality ………

  22. Datredd23 October 15, 2017

    Isn’t this the same person who shaded rihanna so hard for giving away 1.4 million copies of Anti for free? Fans had the choice to download the album THEIR choice ! Doesn’t that sound like massive consumption by the general public ? Hypocrite

  23. Fact Checker October 16, 2017

    I see nothing wrong with Smart Business Move! The Music Industry is changing and Artists have to change with it. This proves her Stage Presence is still what brings the crowd so this is a well deserved win.
