Report: Ariana Grande’s ‘My Everything’ To Move 200,000 Units First Week

Published: Tuesday 26th Aug 2014 by David


And it keeps on getting better for Ariana Grande!

Just under a ear after the arrival of her debut set ‘Yours Truly’, the Pop princess is now on course to welcome a commercial winner with its follow up ‘My Everything’ this week!

How the singer now joins an elite group of acts who can sell singles and albums?

Good news below…

Hits Daily Double reveal:

When the album streets on 8/25—the day after she gets some very big VMA looks—it will unquestionably be her second #1 bow, with forecasts in the 150-200k range.

If said projections prove to be accurate, Grande’s ‘Everything’ sales will see her outperform the 138,000 units she moved with ‘Truly’, which has now been certified Gold in Japan.

    “How the singer now joins an elite group of acts who can sell singles and albums?”

    150k-200k though??? She’s still in the same range with her 1st album, which isn’t a bad deal…But given her promo schedule, shouldn’t this be higher? Given the success of her singles as well?

    But boy, if Rihanna debuted with those numbers, that quoted statement above wouldn’t be on her post…She’s just still a singles artist, right Sam?

    I like the album. I’m expecting 200k, I think if she gets much lower we may need to start using the f word.

  3. nicko August 26, 2014

    :O i thought it was gonna sell much more first week. Damn albums dont sell anymore.

    • whoiam August 28, 2014

      You can’t judge album sales on her, when the real big music acts released their albums from October onwards. That is Tayor Swift & One Direction.If Taylor sells under a million copies or if One Direction sells under 500,000 in 1st week sales that’s when you know album sales are down. This just proofs Ariana has not got a big fanbase, just a lot of hype. Put it this way Ariana Grande could not do a stadium tour she has a long way to go to be consider a big music act

  4. Realest August 26, 2014

    Lol congrats? Gold in japan??? Congrats again? Idk I like her and I will stream the album first but for all this promo and these hit singles, her sales as a whole are that of a flop. So idk. Def not a next Mariah. But cute, none-the-less

  5. Kim Kardashian Stan August 26, 2014

    This album will struggle for gold just like the last one….

    Kiii at her outselling Me I am flopriah.

    • Realest August 26, 2014

      She’s in her prime doing every piece of promo, Mariah’s almost 50 going through marriage issues and did basically ZERO promo. Are you really surprised or just an idiot? Oh ok

    • Rosie August 26, 2014

      I see the true Kardashian/Jenner queens Kendall and Kylie are quickly replacing K**.

    • AmbeRussell August 26, 2014

      Mariah is doing similar numbers her PEERS are doing which are the grown artists in their 40+ who already had albums go gold and plat. With in 8 weeks of its release. Mariah is also on album number like 12 now while Ariana is only on her 2nd…only a troll hater would compared the 2 album sales.

  6. mrtruth August 26, 2014

    It’s not that albums don’t sell anymore. Ariana may be talented and have a hell of a voice, her music isn’t really consistent. Problem is a sure fire winner but it’s no indication of what the rest of her album sounds like. Best Mistake is a horrible song and Break Free is just another euro trash dance song. The album isn’t cohesive nor is it consistent.

    • FAF August 26, 2014

      I agree . Love her tho but I can tell she was chasing commercial success like nickis sophomore album

    • country & rap sells in U.S August 26, 2014

      Exactly. Rappers, Rihanna, Bey, and country artists still sell albums so I am tired of people saying albums don’t sell.

      Drake & Nicki, and Taylor will sell so much more so Universal Republic needs to step their promo game up for Drake.

      • AmbeRussell August 26, 2014

        But drake has a solid fan base. Has already has crossed over just from being a make rapper. Everyone who wants a drake album owns a drake album. More promo really isn’t going to change his album sales. But Ariana does not have a fan base. She couldn’t do a tour and sell out arenas. She is still being discovered by music buyers n she is still discovering herself. Pop n rnb singers are the musicians that trully need promo bc they can cross over to different audiences that didnt know them, where as a big name rapper can’t go on anywhere n hope it will sell his album. Rap n rock is that as universal as pop n rnb

    • Rosie August 26, 2014

      Exactly, it was nothing like her old album, which deserved any sales it could get and was universally acclaimed. Reminds me of how Nicki sold out with PF:RR, right down to the critical panning My Everything is currently getting compared to Yours Truly.

  7. Dirty Laundry August 26, 2014

    Are these numbers supposed to be impressive?

    • FutureCIARA August 26, 2014

      Is Shittty Laundry Gold yet?

  8. Bubbles the chimp August 26, 2014

    In this decade when will Mariah? baby Mariah is taking over

    • Realest August 26, 2014

      Mariah’s 1st cd alone sold 9million copies though… At the rate “yours truly” sold Ariana would have to release like 6-12 albums before she can achieve that of Mariah’s 1 album. You can’t be “baby mariah” and can’t even go gold. LOLLLLLLLLL

    • Beysus August 26, 2014

      LOL What Mariah achieved in the 90’s, Ariana could only dream of!!! Mariah has the most #1 singles and the most singles to debut at #1 in the US. If Ariana becomes the best selling artist of the 2010’s, THEN we can start comparing

    • Bubbles the chimp August 26, 2014

      I said this decade you fools, Mariah can’t even get a gold album this decade. but continue to cling to the past because it’s all you have…

      • Beysus August 26, 2014

        Um she doesn’t need to. She has 2 US diamond albums and soon to be another one… Ariana will never in this day and age…

      • Rosie August 26, 2014

        At least Mariah was somewhat global. Problem only sold 200-300K outside of the US.

  9. Absolved August 26, 2014

    “joins an elite group of acts who can sell singles and albums?”

    On what planet? 150-200k isn’t impressive. Considering how her name, face and music pretty much dominated this summer, she should have done 300k – minimum. These numbers are paltry and in the end I predict this album will only sell marginally better than her first one.

    • AmbeRussell August 26, 2014

      The problem is the album came out too late after problems. They relied too heavily to get the the single number 1 but not the over all project sold. But Ariana isn’t that big of an artist. She is a casual musician with casual fans if you saw her trl special, u saw no one outside the window compared to how ppl used to stand outside the trl window when their favorite singer came.

  10. Beysus August 26, 2014

    Well it ain’t no BEYONCE…

    • Yonce August 26, 2014

      Beyonce doesn’t have to promote a damn thing and she still slaughters these lessers.

      • Beysus August 26, 2014


  11. #TeamTinashe Stan (“Pretend” ft. ASAP Rocky Now On iTunes) August 26, 2014

    I bought this album!!!
    I love it! My favorite is “Break Free,” “Be My Baby,” “My Everything,” “Only One,” “Too Close,” and “My baby loves me, my baby loves me” – Break Your Heart Right Back.

    Her bonus songs are hints that she is going full R&B on the next album.
    The only thing that needs to be worked on is her enunciation and the production on some songs.Love the album! 🙂

  12. Britney Stan August 26, 2014

    This chick has 3 songs in the hot 100 top 10 & this is the best she can do? lol

    • Bubbles the chimp August 26, 2014

      Did better then flopney jean tho

  13. Yonce August 26, 2014

    She gonna sell less than Artpop yet people called that album a flop.

  14. CherylSoldierr August 26, 2014

    All that promo tho!

  15. Proctor August 26, 2014

    These are lackluster numbers that in no way match the hype. Targeting that ADHD 14 year old girl and gay boy demographic that only know Tumblr/Twitter/VEVO/iTunes singles is clearly doing her no favors.

    • CherylSoldierr August 26, 2014

      Usually they buy tho, one direction, 5 secs of summer, etc

  16. iBobbyDeluxe August 26, 2014

    Can we PLEASE let this girl be great for once sheesh I am tired of seeing post of everyone comparing her to Mariah we know she isn’t Mariah but that doesn’t take away that the girl does have talent. Compared to her debut album her first week sales are still impressive if she actually hits 200k she will be gold before November. Her team needs to keep fueling her promo I will be rooting for her.

  17. Lindsay Lohan August 26, 2014

    If it were Rihanna, Lady Gaga or Katy Perry pulling off these numbers, everyone starts calling them flops. And here we are with Ariana, with three songs in the top BB top 10, full on promotions, top billing VMA performances and hype that can last til Christmas, getting just 200k, and we call her a single AND album seller? Well, okay then as long as she’s certified gold… in Japan

    • AmbeRussell August 26, 2014

      Katy sold 189k with teenage dreams 4 yrs ago around this same time…just saying. Anyways, Ariana is still growing as an artist. She doesn’t have a large fan base. She just has casual listeners that get drawn into her. And those 3 women u mentioned have been making music for yrs and all seen huge successes, while Ariana only had a hand full if singles that charted well compared to rihanna or Katy or gaga. But ARTPOP is considered a flip bc btw sold a mill in 1 week, she had a large fan base and did heavy promotion n always speak of her music as larger than life art when it is just pop music. Rihanna says her reign won’t let up but releases albums in the busiest shopping time of the yr n only had 2 albums sell over 200 in their 1st week?! With massive singles to be released prior to the album n still have sales that low?

  18. Royalkev August 26, 2014

    Great first week numbers for her! Ariana’s just getting started and building her fan base. This album is quite good and it will definitely go platinum at least. She has no less than 5 hits on her hands.

  19. StarXavi August 26, 2014

    I don’t really think it’s her fault if she doesn’t sell like crazy. She’s making all the right moves and the album is solid. I wouldn’t be surprised if she does better than 200k…remember these are just projections. I’ve been streaming the album all morning…no bangerz but its a solid piece of work and I’m definitely starting to hear her own style. I wish her luck.

  20. Proud-Arianator August 26, 2014

    It would be projected to shift more if it was a pure pop album well thats what i think but then again she delivered another album thats getting rave reviews.
    Its always good to start your career on a low then work your way up to the top as opposed to shooting straight to the top and come crashing down.
    I don’t care much about her first week sales I’m just glad she delivered another top notch album 🙂

  21. lolhart August 26, 2014

    Actual having a gold record in Japan is not something to be sniffed at. There aren’t many non-Japanese artists whose albums end up getting certified.

    • country & rap sells in U.S August 26, 2014

      She can make a lot of money touring Japan too b/c their tickets are more expensive b.c of cost of living.
      She better go do some TV over there and work that market.

      Mariah still makes money over there. Whitney made money over there too.

      They love big voices.

  22. FutureCIARA August 26, 2014

    But they come for Ciara’s 58k calling it a flop, when it had way less promo than Ariana, and still sold more than “Me. I Am A Flopping Chanteuse”……..

    Cut the BS and just recognize, these artist aren’t flopping, The industry is FLOPPING!!

    • SG August 26, 2014

      iDied at “Me I Am A Flopping Chanteuse.” It truly is the album title that keeps on giving.

    • CzarM August 27, 2014

      “But they come for Ciara’s 58k calling it a flop,”

      It is…

      “when it had way less promo than Ariana,”

      Because Ciara isn’t good for it. Any record label that gives Ariana-level promo to Ciara frankly deserves to fold because she’s not going to return that investment. If Ariana can’t make good on it, then Ciara for sure won’t. That being said, Ciara had extremely good promo for someone who had two flop albums before, was expected to fail again…and did.

      “and still sold more than “Me. I Am A Flopping Chanteuse””

      Is that supposed to mean something? Mariah is in her middle 40s, 25 years into her career and has had earth-shattering, record-breaking success during her commercial run that lasted decades and is now in the music history books. Ciara can’t say the same.

      “Cut the BS and just recognize, these artist aren’t flopping, The industry is FLOPPING!!”

      Cut the BS and recognize that Ciara is played out and very few are interested anymore, which is why she only had one semi-big album 10 years ago and has been on a rapid downward spiral ever since. I’ll admit that she must have friends in high places to keep on getting these reprieves that ultimately fail, but in general she has no brand recognition or star power. The general public doesn’t anticipate her. She lives and dies by her latest single. Don’t try to use this as some kind of an example of hypocrisy. Ariana isn’t living up to her hype, but Ciara has been given more chances than Jesus to resurrect and blows every one.

  23. Metzo August 26, 2014

    Thats not bad, considering that nobody does over 300k first week amymore unless you’re a Boy band, or you’re Beyonce, Adele or Taylor Swift.

    I congratulate her for actually out doing herself. Kudos.

    • whoiam August 28, 2014

      Unless you’re a boyband, not any boyband sells over 300k. The biggest music act in the world which is One Direction sells over 300k & no other boyband sells that amount in recent years. One Direction is the biggest global album seller over the last 2 years. Not even Beyonce can compete with them globally. If you notice Billboard boxscore where the biggest music act in the world as hit $230 million gross with 50 stadium tour with still more shows to go, that’s within 6 months already passed Beyonce 1 year long tour gross figures

  24. Rosie August 26, 2014

    I’ll wait until later estimates but this album had more promo and Viacom/Clear Channel payola than Prism and ARTPOP combined and if it does less than 200K that’s really pathetic.

    • AmbeRussell August 26, 2014

      Prism and ARTPOP are the 3rd from 2 artist that have fans. Ariana doesn’t have a huge fan base. She is still being discovered where as teenage dreams was Katy’s discovery and gaga was this mega star by the end of fame monster. Ariana is a casual artist still to music listeners. Her tv show doesn’t promoter as a singer like victorious did so that is t free promo for her as a singer, n ppl are still learning who she and voice are.

      • Rosie August 26, 2014

        Have you see Problem/Break Free’s first week sales? Problem had the highest out of any artist this year until this week and debuted in the top 5; her fanbase is MASSIVE, you obviously haven’t seen them on Twitter. Even if she didn’t these is no excuse for her possible selling less than f****** Ultraviolence. THREE top 10 hits AT THE SAME TIME, promo on damn near every talk/awards show in the US, a commercial promoting her album airing every five minutes on MTV/VH1, etc. Even if she is local as f*** (Her last album sold less than 100K outside of the US/Japan), there’s still no excuse whatsoever for this. But again, I’ll wait until tomorrow for the real predictions.

  25. Stephy. August 26, 2014

    I hope she can achieve this for entire decade…

  26. JOHNVIDAL August 26, 2014

    What? Well I guess she´ll be able to go Gold this time 🙂 Now seriously they have supported 3 of her songs big time everywhere and she still can´t move more than this?

  27. Honeymoon Avenue August 26, 2014

    People are bashing 200k by comparing it to Rihanna, Katy, or Gaga but just last year Ariana was thrown in with Demi, Selena, and Miley. Regardless of what she sells people will hate. 3 top 10 hits doesn’t automatically place you in the same league as the biggest names of pop who have well established fan bases.

    • CherylSoldierr August 26, 2014

      But that’s the kii. Miley was at her level last year yet was able to outsell gaga and almost katy.

  28. Carmen August 26, 2014

    Shes doing the same numbers as people like Rihanna whos fans claim to the biggest thing since sliced bread. Can’t drag her. There are only a select number of artists who can pull over 300k these days

  29. CherylSoldierr August 26, 2014

    The difference between this and rihanna is that rihanna will consistently sell until her album is at least platinum. She may not be the biggest album seller but her albums always go platinum. Ariana has yet to go gold. Death if this doesn’t either.

  30. Theman August 26, 2014

    Mimi ain’t promote her album, and she only released one
    single.. Ciara ain’t had a certified album since forever.. All
    of Mimi’s albums are certied besides her recent one.. She’s
    been at it far longer than Ciara.. There’s no comparison.. Ciara
    also had a huge r&b hit.. But her album sales yeah lol !

    • FutureCIARA August 26, 2014

      I stopped reading when you lied through your teeth by saying Mariah only released ONE single……..


  31. Del Bey August 26, 2014

    I didn’t like her at first but she’s cute and doing her thing, atleast she has talent somewhat, not much originality and defiantly no new Mariah so let’s all leave that at the door those comparisons, there is and will never be a new Mariah

  32. SMH August 26, 2014

    This girl is just starting out, so these numbers are good for her. She’s not struggling. Struggling is doing a major televised event, going on a commercially successful worldwide tour, and barely pushing 3 million albums worldwide. Now that’s struggling.

  33. Theman August 26, 2014

    Clarification: Mimi released three singles, and a single video for one song way back in feb.. She has done literally no promotion. Meanwhile Cici has been flopping like its an occupation.. She promoted the heck out of that flop album.. U can’t be serious !!
