And the Predictions Are In…: Lana Del Rey’s ‘Honeymoon’ Sales Prediction Lowered

Published: Tuesday 22nd Sep 2015 by Rashad


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).

  2. Mo September 22, 2015

    Thats pretty good Go Lana

  3. Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) September 22, 2015

    Is that bad in this current climate? Still way more than a lot of artists recently releases.

    I don’t particularly care, but these numbers seem pretty decent to me..

  4. Rihyeezy September 22, 2015

    KI where is this b**** @rosie. Lana is a flop!

    • Jamie September 22, 2015

      Rosie fav is actually slaying

    • Rosie September 22, 2015

      At least Lana isn’t scared to release.
      Meanwhile both of the artists in your username remain SHOOK.

      • King Mark111 /.\ September 22, 2015

        Dissing Rihanna isn’t going to prevent this flopage.

  5. Dalia September 22, 2015

    Decent but if this was Ciara yall would call her a flop.

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) September 22, 2015

      Not true. We would praise her sales after copious performances, interviews, magazines covers, and runway shows.

      I haven’t seen or heard anything from Lana and she sells like this!!

      Ciara is in our face all the time! And wasn’t there a tour? And can’t push but half of these numbers?

      Please…Just stop…

  6. Jamie September 22, 2015

    Lana isn’t mainstream selling 100k is great Ciara and Tinashe should be selling like this.

    • Kween Ebony September 22, 2015

      Lana is mainstream what are you talking about? Lana songs go top 10 iTunes upon debut, which is mainstream! Not to mention Born to Die has sold well over 5M copies WW! These numbers are horrible if this was Nicki or Rihanna everyone on here would be dragging them

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) September 22, 2015

        I agree Nicki and Rih would be dragged for these numbers, but I think they are on a higher star level than Lana.

        Those women are bigger household names and have higher sales levels that reflect that.

        So there would be more of a judgment about these kind of sales for them.

      • Rosie September 22, 2015

        Literally everyone goes #1 on iTunes. Vine “stars” do it everytime they attempt a music career.
        All this time you same twinks have been claiming that Lana was “irrelevant” and would do 50K first week (yes, some Gravatar-less troll actually said that), UV ended her, etc. and she’s still doing over 100K first week with NO hit and with maybe two uptempo songs on the album. This is on par with most other artists in the “alternative” spectrum. Vampire Weekend/Arcade Fire’s next albums will probably do these same #s next year if they release. And of course Onika should be doing over 110K while performing at literally every awards show and promo spot possible.

  7. StrawberryMuffin24 September 22, 2015

    Well you have to give Tinashe time she’s still young and it takes time to build yourself up but so far she’s Doing a great job with her music and performances and keeping her name out there!


    • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) September 22, 2015

      I agree Tinashe is relatively new artists. She hasn’t been around for the better part of 10 years like Ciara..

  8. Citi September 22, 2015

    All three of Lana’s albums sound like one long ass song !

  9. Rosie September 22, 2015

    Screaming at y’all waiting until I came back to post this.
    That’s actually not bad at all considering her only promo was a BBC Live Lounge and a few store signings (London and an Urban Outfitters in NYC). Her entire fanbase was predicting below 95K. This would’ve been a guaranteed #1 this week (or almost every other week in 2015) if it wasn’t for that mediocre Drake/Future tape. And besides the album has grown on me a lot this past weekend, I’m actually starting to think it’s her second best album. The second half>>
    And it has excellent reviews too. 79 on Metacritic????

    • King Mark111 /.\ September 22, 2015

      Like the pest, cling to whatever you can. It’s ok, how your new fad, I mean fave doing?

      • Rosie September 22, 2015

        Why do you Navi twinks stay trying to “drag” me for bandwagoning while letting the biggest c**-licking d***-rider on this site come right into open arms every damn day????? Mess.
        By the way, Halsey is MTV’s Artist To Watch for next month, is starting to get radio play on major stations like Z100, and is also about to embark on her tour which sold out in less than 10 minutes.

    • Black power September 22, 2015

      And here she goes with the excuses kiiiiii! Seethe BITCHH

      • Rosie September 22, 2015

        I don’t see the seethe in my comment.
        The only thing seething here is the Rosie Fan Club waiting for their faves release dates while Lana barely promotes and literally does not care.

  10. King Mark111 /.\ September 22, 2015

    The white kids bought a mixtape instead. Hahahaha
    I noticed a trend on this site, when your fave flops, diss Rihanna. You don’t see the Katy or Taylor fans dissing her. Maybe because their fave is winning… ????

    • Molly September 22, 2015

      No ones worried about rih tf stop f*******.

      • King Mark111 /.\ September 22, 2015

        Yo sad @ss kissing self is the main one that set the “Hop to a new fan base like a game of hopscotch” trend. You mad cause Wackie sold 100k… WORLDWIDE!

      • Molly September 22, 2015

        Dude stfu…. Switching stan base because I joined the hive I’m a member of both the squad and hive. You act like you don’t stan for more than 1 person.

  11. Molly September 22, 2015

    Congrats Lana cute numbers….. Hey T.i.t.s I see we’ve been having issues lately. Idk why I adore you welcome back though.

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) September 22, 2015

      My only issue with you is all that slick talk about The QUEEN who your ‘kween’ is obsessed with and tributes her life to.

      So like I said if you go in on mine, I will go in on your fave. That simple.

      Thanks for the welcome back. Lol.

      By the way Molly, what do you think about Russell’s fans blaming Cici for him playing less than?

      Also about his fans raising funds to revive cici’s career, so she has something to keep her busy and away from Russell?

      I screamed when I saw that on the news tonight! LMAO!

      His fans have jokes! Kii!

      • Molly September 22, 2015

        Well it’s all love between us sis… Kiii I’ll play nice for now.

        Lmao and I didn’t hear about that smh funny AF tho

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) September 22, 2015

        @Molly I saw it tonight on Fox 5 news in NYC.

        The players are also pissed because they love some of Future’s songs and want them played at the games but, feel some type of way because Ciara is there and they can’t.

        What kinda phuckery? I was like is this really news? LOL.

      • Molly September 22, 2015

        Lmao girl wtf the news outlets wanna be like TMZ so bad. Kiii it ain’t that damn serious.

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) September 22, 2015

      Love you too bish, but you be trying it!! Xoxo. 🙂

  12. Molly September 22, 2015

    @Rosie freak is slaying me queen

    • Rosie September 22, 2015

      Hi bb!
      I agree, Freak should be the next single. That is, if Lana isn’t lazy enough to release one.
      The MTWBT video looks like its giving BTD teas though.

      • Molly September 22, 2015

        Lana ass better start promoting people love her and freak can totally go top 20. Btw Mark and LB are so ignorant boo pay those power bottoms no mind. Your queen slays there’s.

      • Rosie September 23, 2015

        Like!!! I actually played it in the car the other day and it slayed omg. The bass>
        I’ll SCREAM if Abel releases Prisoner as a single though. Already 10.5 million streams on Spotify (and it’s like the second to last song on the album) and it was the highest album track to debut on the Hot 100 on its release week.

  13. B**** I Can’t Even Spell Welfare September 22, 2015

    You don’t release albums like “Ultraviolence” and “Honeymoon” if you are remotely interested in commercial success.

    Lana is not for everybody. Either you get it or you don’t.

    “Ultraviolence” is a masterpiece. Point blank. “Honeymoon” is simply not in its league in my opinion but I still like it a lot. Both albums will outlive a lot of albums that have bigger sales.

    Seriously, NO ONE cares about Lana’s sales. Her albums are, now, events.

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) September 22, 2015

      Hey luv! Making sense as usual I see..That avi, tho!! I LIVE!! 🙂

      • B**** I Can’t Even Spell Welfare September 22, 2015

        Hey baby!!!!

        They do too much on Lana sometimes. lol!

        You know I’m feeling your JJ avi too! You ready for this tour?! 😀

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) September 22, 2015

        Bish, You know I am!! I can’t wait!! I will see her once in Jersey and once at the Barclays center in BK!!

        February can’t come to soon! What about u? Will you make it this go round? Did u c Janet already?! What’s good baby luv? 🙂

  14. LB September 22, 2015

    Did they just predict this back down? LMAO FLOP

    This one will struggle for Rust harder than UltraFLOPence struggled for platinum.

  15. Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) September 22, 2015

    @Rosie and @Markus please get a room! Y’all fight like y’all wanna f***! LMAO!

    Rosie says:

    Excuses, excuses. I doubt Target only is going to push predictions up to 200K+. The delusion.

    December 16, 2014 at 4:01 pm
    bye says:

    is Ultraflop gold yet?
    December 16, 2014 at 4:04 pm
    Rosie says:

    Will the Pinkshit even come close to gold? If it’s doing less than “Ultraflop” it’s first week with 20x more promo, well…

  17. LB September 22, 2015

    “NOT MY FAV AT THE MOMENT” hahahahahaha now we know why hahahaha, the kids want to buy a mixtape over an album LMAO

    • King Mark111 /.\ September 22, 2015

      *drops dead*

  18. LB September 22, 2015

    “For ‘Cheek To Cheek’, her collaborative album with the legendary Tony Bennett has rocketed straight to #1 on the Billboard 200 tally.

    Details below…

    The LP, which is comprised of classic standards (covers) sold an impressive 131,000 copies in its opening week according to Nielsen SoundScan. Intriguingly, the set sold just one thousand copies more to beat out its nearest competitor Kevin Chesney, whose project ‘The Big Revival’ shifted 130,000 units.

    Less than a boring as$ Jazz Album

  19. Molly September 22, 2015

    Rosies impact is REAL. Queen got all these fartherless DL faggoots in their feelings.

    • King Mark111 /.\ September 22, 2015

      Your immunity to e.coli is simply amazing from all the @ss you kiss. ????

  20. LB September 22, 2015

    Did Rosie’s tug boat make it to the hive? I really want to know LMAO

  21. King Mark111 /.\ September 22, 2015

    How can you just ditch your fave like that? Mine been in the gound for over a decade and I still go hard for her. These kids have no sense of loyalty. Stanning for charts and sales and not the art. Sad. Hahahaha

    • Molly September 22, 2015

      Rihanna and Aaliyah are art now? Lol please both are overrated thots with the most basic discographies

      • LB September 22, 2015

        Girl Rihanna has got 6 platinum albums, how many does Ciara have?

      • Molly September 22, 2015

        Good for Rihanna but sales don’t equal art. Rihanna is a puppet who has no control over her career. P.s. Keep dissing ciara boo it doesn’t phase me bitchhh I’m in da H.I.V.E!!!!!

      • King Mark111 /.\ September 22, 2015

        And Ciara is the lessor of both. Thot? When you fave’s last hit was a b****** baby making music. Overrated, yet yor fave is always jacking her style. Ok… and Rihanna wasn’t basic when she let Ciara open for her on that GGGB tour. #oops

    • Rosie September 22, 2015

      A R****** stan talking about artistry????
      Sweetie, if you haven’t realized by the struggle to get a release date after 8 months after three “underperforming” (by IT’s standards) singles, your fave is the definition of a label puppet. The fact that it will never release an album as non-mainstream as Honeymoon, let alone Ultraviolence, and it’s label still won’t let because it has no control over its career after a damn decade is frankly gotdamn hilarious. A f****** joke. And y’all can bring up Grammys or whatever all you want when it had to cling to Jay-Z/Kanye/whatever rapper for all of them except one.

  22. LB September 22, 2015

    Don’t worry Rosie, you won’t have to jump to the hive or whoever your knew fad, I mean fav is. I’ll start a GoFundMe page to save Lana’s album, or career, whichever is more important.

    • Rosie September 23, 2015

      But weren’t you stanning Katy during Applause vs Roar? Yet here you are hiding behind Ass To Mouth sales today lmaoo
      You’re so f****** obsessed with me. Still bookmarking my comments on your dusty ass Dell Windows XP laptop???? I bet you have an entire bookmarks folder on Internet Explorer or whatever dry ass browser you use dedicated to me and Lana.

  23. B**** I Can’t Even Spell Welfare September 22, 2015

    I’m ready too!!!!

    I’ll see her in Kansas City in October & in Tulsa in January. I’m SOOOOO excited! 😀

    • B**** I Can’t Even Spell Welfare September 22, 2015

      Ooops! This was for @Anastasia Beaverhousen ^^^^^^^^^^^^^ I messed that up.

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) September 23, 2015

        No worries luv! You are so lucky you get to see her this year! Tell me all about it when u go to the shows!


  24. Rosie September 22, 2015

    The Fagvy PERCHED in here like their slave fave perched at the Roc Nation studios waiting for a release date. Little Cutter teas.
    Not them clinging to Cheek To Cheek as their fave remains f****** a biting-ass cokehead/r***** and selling socks.

  25. King Mark111 /.\ September 23, 2015

    “These are good numbers in this climate” Umm, a mixtape is about to do 500K in the same week (Minus two days mind you), So that’s not going to cut it in this battle. Where have you seen Drake and Feature promoting? So lack of promoting isn’t going to gut it as well. Nosie is losing it, hahahaha.

    • Rosie September 23, 2015

      Literally two albums went platinum in 2015, and less than 10 total went GOLD this year so far. Why are you f*** so delusional? Acting like s*** still sells like its 2010 or whatever.
      And now the Salvation Army is clinging to Drake. Can’t wait for Slaverih to surprise release R8PE and sell around these same numbers so y’all can shut the f*** up.

      • What now September 23, 2015

        Save ur excuses! Lana iz a fad. 3 years n and struggling 2 c a gold plaque with her two f***** up crooked a** eyes. The gud thing iz that she can’t make a sad face wen they tell her a** the #s bc she froze & f***** her face with all that botox. KIIIIII

      • King Mark111 /.\ September 23, 2015

        Irrelevant, THIS WEEK, a MIXTAPE is going to sell 500K, no promo, two black rappers, 400K more than a White “international” pop singer. Don’t come with the “Music don’t sell like it used to” When you have Taylor seeling a milli a week 3 times in a row. When you have Drake doing 500K, when you have J.Cole doing 300K. The people are in to you or they’re not. Your fave is a flop. It was a nice run, but it’s over now. Period, done, goodbye.

      • Rosie September 23, 2015

        “Excuses” like the way Slaverih struggled for an entire interview to explain why C8KEHEAD still isn’t finished?

      • Rosie September 23, 2015

        The self drag when 300K is more than every release week for “black Madonna!! Biggest black female superstar of all time!!1” My god the Salvation Army literally does not see how f****** stupid they sound.
        With all this reaching I’m expecting AT LEAST 250K for SL8VE with all this “anticipation!1” and “GP thirst!!1″”

  26. King Mark111 /.\ September 23, 2015

    I heard Target is selling a SP edition with an extra song called “Fvck My Way to A Flop”.

  27. What now September 23, 2015

    Not ‘the fad’ Gaga’s jazz album outselling UV & now HoneydewSunSet! KIIII Drag that b**** 4 filth Mark & LB! Dis b**** stayed running her mouth wen her fav haz no ground 2 stand on. U made fun of Riri’s, Madonna’s, Beyoncè’s (b4 u “joined the Hive), Ciara’s, Mariah’s, Katy’s, and more. Receive dis a** whopping w/ no excuses. It’ll give u more time 2 put tears on ur pillowcase.

  28. Rosie September 23, 2015

    The way this post was going just fine until the pressed ass Navi ran in here. Literally more obsessed than a certain other fanbase at this point. Like I wouldn’t be talking s*** with the way Slave’s era is currently being the messiest era of all time.
    Almost ten months since FourFiveSTDs and still no release date in sight???? The album isn’t even finished. Obviously doesn’t give a f*** about its career or fans for it to be going around smoking and partying while letting a cokehead/r***** inside of it while it’s fans suffer.

    • King Mark111 /.\ September 23, 2015

      But the first comment was…
      – says:


  29. Rosie September 23, 2015

    Selling 25K first week >> letting Travi$ Scott inside
    Literally everyone has more self-respect than IT.

  30. What now September 23, 2015

    I rather R8 NEVER come out if it is going 2 “sell” like XRay & HoneycombMound. KIIIIIII. Stay mad.

    • Rosie September 23, 2015

      Good luck because it’ll be selling these numbers MAX.

  31. King Mark111 /.\ September 23, 2015

    If R8 does 80K, I’m going to be blasting it on Rihpeat looking like, “And What?”. I don’t care for sales, but clearly Nosie does.

  32. Rosie September 23, 2015

    All this time these same posters trying to drag were claiming Lana has BEEN a flop and BEEN irrelevant and NO ONE knew it since 2013 when I started posting (death at Mark using “international pop singer” now to make her look bad when it’s the same f** swearing up and down she was unknown). And it was even worse when she was “b0mbing!!!” with Ultraviolence so by your own words these numbers shouldn’t be surprising?
    Or better yet they SHOULD be surprising considering no other female solo artist is doing over 100K with no hits and an album full of ballads (Florence + the Machine is but that’s technically a band).

  33. Queen Molly September 23, 2015

    Rosie youre better than these bitchees ignore them

  34. Rosie September 23, 2015

    “I don’t care for sales, but clearly Nosie does.”.
    Dumb f***, if I stanned for success, I wouldn’t be stanning Lana in the first place.

    • Molly September 23, 2015

      Lmao girl its a god dam idiot

  35. LB September 23, 2015

    “Lana is not my fav right now” says otherwise ????

    • Rosie September 23, 2015

      And my other fave sold 97K first week while her highest charting single is like #98. You f*** literally don’t try, don’t you?

    • King Mark111 /.\ September 23, 2015

      Death! LB, I freaking love you, lol

  36. LB September 23, 2015

    OK Rosie, you can help Lana out by carrying these Ls for her

  37. King Mark111 /.\ September 23, 2015

    But wasn’t Nosie bragging thay Born Yo Lie selling 5 million worldwide and rubbing it in the cutters and C Scrubs faces? I recall you saying she was going to win an oscar, bit thay didn’t happen as well. ????

    • Keri Qween September 23, 2015

      Yeah she was bragging about BTD sales all the time King Mark. The irony now that her faves boring new elevator music album won’t even go gold now she doesn’t Stan for sales kiiiiii

  38. LB September 23, 2015

    @Mark she needs to win a Grammy first

  39. LB September 23, 2015

    Putting Lana’s career on life support, hydrating with Rosie’s tears

  40. ANDREW September 23, 2015

    Lol at this post.
    @Rosie have you heard pagans in vegas yet? I swear this year hasn’t been a bad one for music

    • Rosie September 23, 2015

      I heard it was kinda mediocre but I’ll check it out. I really like the rest of Metric’s albums. They’re huge here.
      The new CHVRCHES album leaked btw.

      • ANDREW September 23, 2015

        I hated “Cascades” when I first heard it as a single but now I can’t get enough but Fantasies >>> everything they have released since then. Haven’t really been checking for CHVRCHES besides the mother we share and that one song they did for the hunger games sound track

  41. @JanetCIARA_ September 23, 2015

    Im not here for the double standard… These are FLOP numbers for her, IDGAF!!!
    Stop trying to save her, This is a mess, although better than some, Still A MESSY FLOP!

  42. Rosie September 23, 2015

    As expected, the Navi’s personal c**-eater Keri Kween comes in here like their REAL fave isn’t going to do 4K max first week. Stay in Your Lane, please.
    Since LB has all of Lana’s interviews bookmarked, why can’t it bring up the one just from last week where she literally says she doesn’t care about the charts? Or since it ran with that Complex interview last time, where in the SAME INTERVIEW she basically admits to being lazy and saying that Interscope needs to do all the promo for her? Hypocritical mess at it only using Lana quotes when it’s necessary for it. Guarantee you Lana is probably paying more attention to Metacritic than HDD.

  43. OMG Logic!!! September 23, 2015

    Not gonna lie, Lana Banana continues to impress with her sales power.

  44. Suicide Blonde September 23, 2015

    Like Rosie said I was expecting 95k or even less, for an artist like her, an artist that don’t make music for the masses, this is great, a testament of her power, she should be selling 15k first week, considering how underground her music is, on top of that, the woman does not promoted her albums, she could care less. I can’t believe people are comparing her to mainstrean artists these numbers would be disastrous for Janet, Madonna, Rihanna and the rest of Pop singers but not for Lana. Anyway, the album is brilliant, it’s on repeat non-stop. #MusicForSmartPeople

    That ^^^^^^ pretty much sums it up. Enough with the excuses.

  46. BEY>RIH September 23, 2015

    The Nazi will be very upset when the “Black Madonna” sells these exact same numbers. Lana isn’t a pop girl and she didn’t promote at all so these are pretty good numbers. I dont know why certain fans have the irony to “drag” when their fave highest first week sales are lower than Ciara’s highest.

  47. ??? September 23, 2015

    These comments are the funniest s*** ever!!!!

    Do you ppl have lives? Jobs even?
