The Ariana Grande-produced ‘Charlie’s Angels’ soundtrack may be lauded for assembling some of the music industry’s most recognizable voices aboard its star-studded tracklist, but its content has been subjected to mixed reviews from critics and fans alike. And, if its predicted first week sales are to judge by, that disapproval is being reflected commercially.
After failing to fly to the top of charts as anticipated with its highly anticipated lead single, ‘Don’t Call Me Angel’ (featuring Grande, Lana Del Rey, and Miley Cyrus), the project followed with the even worse performing Kash Doll-led ‘How It’s Done.’
Despite the nonperformance of its singles suggesting an absence of buzz (a surprising feat for an effort of this caliber), the soundtrack soared onto shelves and into chart battle on November 1. After two days of tracked streams and digital downloads, industry analysts have issued a prediction of how well they suspect the set will sell.
‘Charlie’s Angels’ Soundtrack
Predicted First Week Sales (SPS): 13-17k
Predicted First Week Sales (Pure): 4-6k
If the prediction above rings true it will come as the lowest first week sales of any project with Grande attached as a leader.
The soundtrack precedes the Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska-led film’s arrival into theaters by two weeks (November 15).
