The Predictions Are In! Celine Dion’s ‘Courage’ Album Set To Sell…

Published: Sunday 17th Nov 2019 by Sam

Celine Dion soars to the highest heights on new album ‘Courage’ – her first English-language project in six years.

It also serves as the seasoned songbird’s first worldwide body of work since the passing of her longtime manager and husband Rene Angelil.

With critics showering the set with praise, eyes are now turning to its commercial performance.

Is the project set to deliver? The first week forecast is in. Details below…

According to Hits Daily Double, Dion looks poised to premiere at #1 with the following figures…

122,000-127,000
[Sales Plus Streaming]
**********
120,000-124,000
[Pure Sales]

**********

Congrats!

Suffice to say, pure sales make up the lion-share of Dion’s digits. And, given her audience composition, it’s not surprising.

She also wisely offered an album/tour bundle, which we’re sure helped too.

Streaming may rule the roost, but every so often there are acts who buck the trend. Dion being one of them.

      Ummmm 127,000 is actually great for a 30 year plus veteran so if these new artist last half as long they should be so lucky sit yo uninformed ass down

        Celine is a legendary artist. She is like Barbara Streisand coming through with a new release and charting top 5. The only difference is Barbara is a jew and she aint giving away free albums through a your bundle to chart high! You have to buy Barbara Streisand albums with money for the sale to count whereas Celine is giving her album away to concert attendees.

      Umm Barbara did with her last album that’s how she outsold Britney because she did a bundle sis

      • 🍇 Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇🍷 November 17, 2019

        Barbara never did that with a studio album! She gave away a live concert album as a present to her fans that bought concert tickets but she would never do that with new material.

    • HeartWarmer November 18, 2019

      You’re so positive. No wonder you comment. You’re opinion is so worthy. Keep on doing what you’re doing. And WAIT for those blessings to kick in.

    • Caleb November 18, 2019

      These are not flop numbers.

    • AJ November 18, 2019

      Name another artist from Celine’s era or of her age who I selling over 100k copies today?

      Soooooo….

    Tour bundle sales should not count for any of these artists because the album is sold at zero dollars in a bundle. Yet, mostly all artists use tour bundles now to inflate their “sales” except for my man Drake. He just bundles merchandise but you still have to buy his albums separately .

    Celine’s San Antonio, TX show is selling as low as 53 dollars per concert ticket and that also includes a free Courage album per ticket. Seems to me tour bundle sales should not count because people really bought a concert ticket and the album is just given to them whether or not they want the album.

    • Carlitos November 17, 2019

      Your man Drake? You’re a nobody. Have several mf seats, loser.

      • 🍇 Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇 🍷 November 17, 2019

        This is an urban blog not a prude blog. If you do not know the urban slang phrases ‘my man’ or ‘my girl’ get off MY blog or learn the phrases are terms of endearment!

        You are the loser speaking to me like that. You need to Bow Down 🙇🏾‍♂️ and BEG for my foregiveness!

      • CUMila November 17, 2019

        Shut up Jazztroll you and CumClarkson (who are the same people) are always spaming the comment section here…can’t stand you quirks anymore!
        You two are LOSERS who spend all your days commenting this blog.
        Go get a freakin’ life SIS and this isn’t your blog it’s everybody’s blog…you are like that old racist aunt we all got and have to sometimes put up with them but in the end nobody really likes them.

      • 🍇 Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇🍷 November 17, 2019

        This is NOT ‘everybody’s blog’ and I am NOT Clarkson Troll! This is Jasmine’s Grape Juice and if you do not want to sip on some Jasmine Champagne chased with Remy Martin Cognac take your wack ass on somewhere! I am not a Loser! I am a Winner! You are the loser speaking to me like that. You need to Bow Down 🙇🏾‍♂️ and BEG for my forgiveness!

    • Jason November 18, 2019

      If you’ve been to the concert you understand that she’s not giving it away because she’s desperate to sell. This woman sings her face off to FULL arenas every night. If she wants to bundle, she can. That takes nothing away from her brilliant voice/show, and Iconic career. She’s not worried about you or the talentless people you Stan!

      • 🍇 Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇 🍷 November 18, 2019

        I never said any of that sh|t u stated. U are reading too much into what I said. My comments are literal not figurative!

  3. Only facts November 17, 2019

    A queen!

    • Fancy BISH November 17, 2019

      Yaaas! 🤳🏽

  4. 👋🏼 November 17, 2019

    Mariah was named the most successful female artist of all time this week by billboard!

    🦋🦋🦋

    • 🍇 Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇 🍷 November 17, 2019

      Yea indeed. Mariah deserves it. She has worked hard and still has an incredible voice.

    • Gworl Bye November 18, 2019

      Oh please, billboard has been irrelevant for years, mariah is not more successful than Barbara Streisand or Madonna, i dont care how many times she recycles that christmas bullshyt.

      • 🍇 Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇 🍷 November 18, 2019

        I agree with that

    • sTEVE November 20, 2019

      THE WORLD DOES REVOLVE AROUND THE USA. IT REFERS TO USA ONLY. BUT GLOBALLY CELINE AND MADONNA KICKS HER ASS

  5. ERIC November 17, 2019

    Bundled CDs are never free. You better believe the cost is rolled into the price of the ticket.

    • 🍇 Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇🍷 November 17, 2019

      Not really. When I look at some of the shows the tickets are as low as 53 bucks a ticket. A CD costs 12 to 15 bucks. A legendary performer like Celine should not be giving away her new album with 53 dollar concert tickets. Ticketmaster says ALL tickets include the free album, regardless of the concert ticket price, as long as you buy the concert ticket on ticketmaster and not through a reseller.

      “ Included with every online ticket order for Celine Dion’s North American tour is one CD copy of her new English album, scheduled to be released this fall. Offer is valid for US and Canadian residents. Not valid for tickets purchased via resale. Offer expires 03/27/2020.” – Ticketmaster

      • Deliscious1984 November 18, 2019

        First of all its per order not per ti ket so if you order 4 tickets its still 1 album you get. Second not everybody redeems their album cause you dont just get it you have to redeem it otherwise she would have sold more than 700000 in first week… she is a legend so treat her with respect cause she works as hard as mariah and kept her voice even better..btw she is 4 days going 1 album in the world on itunes charts so no bundles there sit down have a seat and learn several lessons

      • 🍇 Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇🍷 November 18, 2019

        I do respect Celine and I did not say anything that was disrespectful! I am a realist though not a fake so I call it like I see it! If Drake or Adele did this I would call them out on it too.

      • Gworl Bye November 18, 2019

        Stay mad. Celine sells albums, and you will stay mad about it.

      • 🍇 Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇 🍷 November 18, 2019

        Im not mad about anything. Im having a blessed day

  6. Stop the pettiness November 18, 2019

    Who cares if an artist gives away a CD when your purchase a concert ticket? We all know the worth and power that Celine’s name holds. “Concert bundles shouldn’t count for actual sales” blah blah blah. Amounts of streams shouldn’t count as a sale but here we are. You have to adapt with the changes in the music industry or you’ll flop. Younger artists today wish they could sell that many pure copies of their albums in a week. Let’s just celebrate the quality of this album as it is her best English material since A New Day Has Come and the positive critiques it’s receiving.

    • 🍇 Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇🍷 November 18, 2019

      “Younger artists today wish they could sell that many pure copies of their albums in a week.” – Practice what you preach! Your user names says “Stop the pettiness” yet you are being super petty, defensive, and outright lying!

      Adele, Drake, and Beyonce don’t give away studio albums with their tours and they are younger artists than Celine. Most older artists Celine’s age don’t give away studio albums with their tours either (Mariah, Barbra Streisand, Shania Twain, etc). I understand giving away a concert t-shirt or hat but to give away a studio album and then count the giveaway as a “sale” is cheating the system because people who want to see a concert will buy the ticket regardless of a new album so that is definitely inflating your sales!

      What is petty? People that make excuses for these shenanigans aka fake sales NOT realists like me. I call it like I see it! Don’t take the ish personal. I like Celine’s voice. She is a legendary singer.

      • Gworl Bye November 18, 2019

        Girl shut up and stop with your seething essays lol. Celine still sells albums, your fave does not. Period.

      • 🍇 Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇 🍷 November 18, 2019

        Celine is one of my favs so make your comment make sense.

  7. Caleb November 18, 2019

    She has a really strong fan base.

  8. Sweetnothings78 November 18, 2019

    I’ve never seen here live and wasn’t interested. Now after all these years she literally has me mesmerised by her charm class and that voice.
    So I bought two incredibly expensive tickets so I can hear that voice myself.

    Amazing woman and she is a legend so congrats and good luck to her why courage. I’m a new fan and thinks she’s amazing.

  9. JOHNVIDAL November 18, 2019

    Wow way higher than what I expected. Way more than most young artists in the current climate. I EXPECTED 70k at most like most artists who still sell copies.
    She is amazing. And her body and the shape she is in and her style is fabulous at 55 years old.

  10. Gworl Bye November 18, 2019

    Celine is a Legend that still SELL UNITS, not streams like these mediocre pop stars of this time who can barely do these numbers even with streaming.

  11. Jason November 18, 2019

    Her tour is INCREDIBLE! Real talent will always be successful. She’s a true Icon, and they don’t really come along anymore. Especially now!

    • eric November 18, 2019

      I agree. I would gladly have paid to see her twice if she had done two shows here.

  12. Mitchell cobb November 18, 2019
