After quite the campaign, Camila Cabello‘s sophomore album ‘Romance’ was unwrapped last Friday.
The set, which was preceded by a slew of singles, was greeted with mixed reviews.
Indeed, some took to the clearly carved for radio cuts such as the chart-topping Shawn Mendes collab ‘Senorita’ and ‘My Oh My’ featuring Da Baby. Yet others bemoaned the otherwise lack of clear hits on the largely mid-tempo/ballad-heavy set.
Now, as Cabello aims to elevate from solo hopeful to bonafide Pop darling, all eyes are on what the project’s commercial debut is on course to deliver.
Well, wonder no more because the first week predictions for ‘Romance’ await below…
According to Hits Daily Double, here’s how Cabello’s numbers are stacking up in the forecast:

The numbers, which are helped in earnest by an album/tour ticket bundle, do not guarantee a #1 on the Billboard 200.
Instead, they put Cabello at the lesser end of a three-way race with the week’s other new releases – all of which are projected similar debuts:
The Who (Polydor) 75-85k [SPS], 75-85k [Pure]
Roddy Ricch (Atlantic) 75-85k [SPS], 1-3k [Pure]
Suffice to say, it’ll be intriguing to see who comes out on top.
