After a nearly five-year wait, devoted fans of Justin Bieber – affectionately called ‘Beliebers’ – finally got their hands on a new body of work from the former teen heartthrob.
Christened ‘Changes,’ the effort – which follows 2015’s chart-topping ‘Purpose’ – comes as his fifth studio album and has been promoted by the release of two singles (‘Yummy’ and the Quavo-assisted ‘Intentions’), a Youtube documentary, and a number of live performances on late night TV.
Released Valentine’s Day 2020, the project hopped to the top of the iTunes sales tally just hours after its debut – a feat mirrored on real-time Spotify and Amazon charts. With two days of commercial performance tracking in its rear view, industry analysts have unveiled their first week sales prediction for the February 14th-released set.
Find out what it is below:
Justin Bieber’s ‘Changes’
First Week Sales Prediction (SPS): 270k-320k
First Week Sales Prediction (Pure): 185k-210k
First Week Chart Prediction: #1
If the prediction above rings true, ‘Changes’ will open to the biggest first week sales of 2020.
And, while its numbers will pale in comparison to the blockbuster first week sales of its predecessor, ‘Purpose’ (649,000 units shifted its first 7 days), the ‘Yummy’-led effort’s figures are fairly in line with the first week sales performances of Bieber’s other 3 studio efforts.
