Just like the misreported prediction surrounding its lead single ‘High by the Beach,’ Lana Del Rey‘s ‘Honeymoon’ has suffered a similar fate as its first week’s forecast has been recalculated.
While not as drastic as that of ‘Beach,’ which saw over a 70% drop after new reports surfaced, it’s certainly enough to stir up a frenzy among the diva’s devoted fans. Indeed, once considered the frontrunner for the top spot on next week’s Billboard 200, the trap pop queen has been dethroned by Drake and Future‘s hotly selling mixtape ‘What A Time To Be Alive.’
Curious to know Del Rey’s new numbers? We thought you’d be. Tuck in below for the original projections and see where she is expected to fall next week:
Initial First Week Projection: 125,000
Updated Projection: 110,000-115,000
With the new numbers Del Rey is likely to land at #2 on next week’s Billboard 200.
The reports certainly come as a blow to the singer’s track record which, as of 2014’s ‘Ultraviolence,’ was on the up-and-up. While 2012’s ‘Born To Die’ premiered at the #2 spot on the Billboard 200 with 77,000 sold its first week, ‘Ultraviolence’ crashed at the #1 spot with over 2x’s its sales (182,000 sold).
