The Predictions Are In! The Weeknd’s ‘After Hours’ Album Set To Sell…

Published: Saturday 21st Mar 2020 by Sam

While the globe’s current predicament has seen acts hit the pause button on their bops, The Weeknd pressed on with the release of his fourth album ‘After Hours.’

Preceded by singles ‘Heartless’ and ‘Blinding Lights’ (both of which topped charts worldwide)the set has been hotly tipped for big things.

With the project now in the marketplace, is it delivering? The first week predictions are in and hold the answer.

Join us after the jump…

According to Hits Daily Double, ‘After Hours’ will easily premiere at #1 on the Billboard 200 with:

400,000
[Sales Plus Streaming]
*******
200,000
[Pure Sales]

Of the total figure, streaming accounted for 160,000-200k. Elsewhere, an album/tour-ticket bundle helped generously – drumming up numbers to the tune of 200,000.

 

The feat sees Abel amass sales in the neighbourhood of the 411k tallied by 2015’s ‘Beauty Behind The Madness,’ while easily besting the 348,000 achieved by 2016’s ‘Starboy.’

Perhaps most notable is that the fact that the numbers put him in contention for biggest opening of 2020. No small feat given the panic over the present pandemic.

Deserved? Let us know what you think…

    Not a fan of the album as a whole, but the singles are bops! Congrats Abel!

  3. Nicky March 21, 2020

    No multiple videos, big budget, payola, etc

    Camicky 81K SPS ???. Imagine if Seniorita wasn’t included. It wasn’t the lead single. It was added when they realized her lead singles were flopping

    ??????

    • Shayla Queen ? March 21, 2020

      “Camicky! SQUAWK SQUAWK! Camicky!” ?

      You OBSESSED with Camila! Tf this post gots to do with Camila?! FREAK! Get help FAST!

      • Haterz Gon‘ Hate March 21, 2020

        Actually – Clarkson: we know it’s you. Why are you hiding behind multiple accounts? Are you suggesting Nicky get help because you are actually the one making a cry for help? Your behaviour definitely reflects someone with deep psychological issues. Maybe give the blogs a rest for a while if the whole Corona situation is amplifying your anxiety. ??

      • Normani The Flop Whisperer March 21, 2020

        Thanks for making Camila and Clarkson rule your life? the obsession is working

      • Shayla Queen ? March 21, 2020

        @Haterz

        What is it with you hoës saying I’m Clarkson because we both like one artist? Fools.

      • Clarks0o0ñ March 21, 2020

        @shayla
        They are so dumb.
        Very poor way of thinking.

        They are also obsessed
        This post has nothing to do with Camila but they are bringing up her name.

      • Onika The R***** Whisperer March 22, 2020

        Cüümila is a dirty flop whöre. That’s all I have to say.

  4. MikeJohn090 March 21, 2020

    Now is actually a good time to release music, ONLY if ur a big artist and can sell on ur name (hype) alone. I.e. Beyonce, Rihanna, Taylor, Gaga, Cardi… People have time to at least stream it tons of time or even if it’s once to check it out verses putting it off or not even listening.

    • Haterz Gon‘ Hate March 21, 2020

      Very True ✅

      Everyone should release this year apart from Adele though.

      That bish will have us all throwing ourselves through closed windows with her ish. Ain’t nobody got time for that. No mam’.

  5. Quanny March 21, 2020

    • Shayla Queen ? March 21, 2020

      You’re a c****.

  10. SMH March 21, 2020

    No its not deserved. Hes not real artist. His whole aesthetic is a cheap version of Bruno Mars. Itll probably disappear like justin beiber’s album did. Plus he had a album/ticket bundle. Thats the only thing that saved it.

    • ??‍♀️Jazzy Da Bi Asian ??‍♀️Not ? TROLLmine ??‍♀️Nor ? TRASHmine March 21, 2020

      Him and Bruno are nothing alike.

  11. fufu March 21, 2020

    while I wouldnt say he makes the best music in the world, he is one cool ass n****. I love the theme and vibe of his songs, very cerebral . he is in his own lane and has his swag on lock

  12. Clarks0o0ñ March 21, 2020

  14. Theman March 22, 2020

    Great numbers. He would have still did great without the bundle.

  15. Johnell Hill March 22, 2020

    The Weeknd is the test tube baby of Michael Jackson Prince and Maxwell! Thats a compliment because The After Hours LP is Incredible. Hes on word Amazing!

    • Kevon March 23, 2020
