Despite a series of false starts and lukewarm received singles, Gwen Stefani‘s celebrity (see:  highly publicized romance with country singer Blake Shelton, stints on ‘The Voice,’ divorce, and more) is proving itself fuel enough to launch her third album ‘This Is What the Truth Feels Like.’

Yet, while early predictions had it the pop/ska-soaked set would lend Gwen her lowest first week sales to date, they also reported she’d lead next week’s Billboard 200 with album equivalent sales of 68,000-73,000.  Ousting ‘Work’ wailer Rihanna from the top spot, refreshed reports indicate Stefani will steal the #1 position with an amount even higher than previously projected.

Find out her new predicted sum below:

New 1st Week Prediction:  81,000 – 88,000 SPS

Via Billboard:

Gwen Stefani is aiming for her first solo No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart with her latest release, This Is What the Truth Feels Like. Industry forecasters suggest the set could earn around 80,000 equivalent album units in the week ending March 24. That should be enough for the title to debut atop the chart dated April 9…

        They can never bite the hand that feeds them. If you think it’s bad now, wait for Beyoncé’s new album to drop. The unnecessary comparisons between it and Anti are going to be sickening.

      • rosy3 March 25, 2016

        Good for you gwen she deserves a win this woman has been through a lot Sam kick rocks while you at it kick one in David throat

      • HailBeysus March 25, 2016

        Damn bitxh why you always posting negative shít. Your first post is always in regards to what is happening in the comments and not the actual post. There was nothing negative in this post about Cheatanna. They just stated the obvious that she would snatch the top spot from fRihanna.

      • rosy3 March 25, 2016

        I have nothing against Beyonce but the hives make people dislike Beyonce for no reason they bully rih and this blog is pathetic they use rih to start a stan war I think Sam and David create fake emails and names with be hives and navy to diss each other make it look like both fighting against one another I also think hailbeysus is Sam or divid

      • HailBeysus March 25, 2016

        The reason why streaming is winning is because no one has time to sit,at home and listen to music who has a cd player anymore consumer’s find it easier to download an album on your phones and Ipad so billboard needs to get with the program times are changing you get a cd for the car and people are plugging their music in the car

    Ok Gwen I see ya boo. I haven’t listened to her album yet, but I know it’s good.

  3. ???Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??? March 25, 2016

    Really? Just about 5,000+ more copies expected? Anyway, congrats to her. The music IS generic regurgitated crap, though. Let her serve up another “Sweet Escape” and watch those sales sky rocket.

    • F March 26, 2016

      How about another Love.Angel.Music.Baby? That album is amazing and her best body of work

      • ???Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??? March 27, 2016

        “Harajuku Girls” still slays me ’til this day. It’s so weird, unique, quirky, and just different. It fits well in the album, somehow, though. I can tell she worked really hard on making sure the tracklist was absolute perfection. Such a diversified, classic gem on pop culture.

    Damn… Streaming has truly taken over the industry. I never thought the day would come when multiple albums are scanning below 75K in physical sales. Then again, I’m old – I’m 31 and used to buying CDs but this is the times. The digital/streaming age has commenced!

    Good for Gwen though.

    • ???Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??? March 25, 2016

      Are you familiar with the “Impossible Princess” album?

  5. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 25, 2016

    She did 88k

  6. Tran anti no honey love time but it okay girl March 25, 2016

    Wow awesome

  7. theman March 26, 2016

    People listen to music in various ways. Streaming is only doing what it is because its cheap and free. Also, its not tangible. You cant hold or own it, something that you can do with a physical copy. Some of these artists just cant sale and streaming is the excuse. You dont need to walk around with a cd player there are cars and home systems. Also the cd version is far more superior in sound.

  8. brazio March 26, 2016

    Go Gwen!

  9. Cinnamon Girl March 26, 2016

    You know the music industry has gone to s#### when folks celebrate measly sales like this and streaming is counted as sales. Michael Jackson sold 80 million copies of Thriller in pure sales, making it the best selling album of all time. That’s what you celebrate. The only person in the music industry right now that I tip my hat off to is Adele. She has talent and she is selling huge amounts of pure physical sales

  10. Liam March 26, 2016

    Congrats….the album is a solid piece of work

  11. Yan March 27, 2016

    The fact she’s doing those numbers without Spotify (For some reason her album wasn’t released there).
