The Final Numbers Are In! Dua Lipa’s ‘Future Nostalgia’ Sold…

Published: Sunday 5th Apr 2020 by Sam

Dua Lipa‘s ‘Future Nostalgia’ has made its debut on the Billboard 200.

Touted as one of the year’s most anticipated releases, the LP arrives on the heels of a double GRAMMY win for the Brit in 2019 and was preceded by a number of singles – including smash hit ‘Don’t Start Now,’ which has thus far peaked at #2 on the Hot 100.

It hasn’t all been plain-sailing, though.

For, Lipa has had to weather the storm of an early leak (which, in turn, forced, an earlier than planned release) and limited promotional options as the world comes to grips with the global health crisis.

How did all impact the project’s commercial performance? Find out below…

With the numbers counted and verified, ‘Future’ premieres at #4 on the tally with sales of:

66,000
[Sales Plus Streaming]
*****
18,000
[Pure Sales]

*********

The widely praised project was bested by The Weeknd, whose ‘After Hours’ reigns for a second week, as well as 5 Seconds Of Summer, and Lil Uzi Vert.

Suffice to say, it’ll be interesting to see where ‘Nostalgia’ makes its most pronounced mark moving forward.

Will it prove a consistent seller? Or perhaps continue to deliver on the singles chart?

In the here and now, though, what are…

Your thoughts?

    Congrats Dua Lipa ??? selling 18knonly but thanks to your streaming numbers, you went all the way to 66k.

    She sold less than CamilaCabello’s “Romance ” but Dua’s singles are Poppin. I like her two songs. I actually like Dua.

    • Normani The Flop Whisperer April 5, 2020

      Blah blah blah. With all that yapping, she still flopped and debut on not #1, not #2, not #3 but #4. Take that patti labelle humble pie.

    • Patti Labelle’s Diabetes Pies April 5, 2020

      Normanly neither have Grammys nomination s nor #1s ?

    • James April 5, 2020

      Congrats to Dua, on her Top 5 debut she is a 2019 double Grammy award winner for Best New Artist and Best Dance Recording. She will have longevity and continued success. “Don’t Start Now“ hit number 2 and could possibly hit number 1. Overall she still did good during this Global Pandemic and with a leaked album. Hopefully she will get to promote more in the future the deluxe version will be out later this year.

        She has a unique voice.

  8. Ughhh April 5, 2020

    Yikes. Those aren’t good numbers.

    With Apple Music and Spotify, no one has to actually purchase records anymore. They are primarily at fault for record sales plummeting.

    Also, I’ve noticed artist putting their whole damn album on YouTube as soon as it releases. Why would I go purchase it, if it’s already so accessible?

    Dua, sweetie just do what ever artist is going to do this year if their records flop, blame Ms. Corona hahaha

    • Theman April 6, 2020

      But it’s more impressive when people actually purchase your albums.

  9. Beylover April 5, 2020

    I don’t know who this girl is or any of her songs, but they way TGJ promotes and hypes her you would have thought she was going to sell atleast 100K!

    Clarkson STFU! You’re PAINED at the fact Dua’s sophomore album is about to DEMOLISH Canolas. And Dua is doing it WITHOUT any features, without 5 different album covers, and tour bundles. I cannot breathe We love to see it!!! Most acclaimed pop album of 2020

      I don’t care for your girl, normani or Dua but you keep saying “they” but only post the receipts of one other person ahaha

      And you post multiple times of the same receipt over and over again.

      If your girl is actually winning, why are you working so hard to prove it?

      I hope you have this much confidence and self worth for yourself as much you have for a girl that don’t give a damn about your black gay àss
