The Predictions Are In! Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘Good News’ Set To Sell…

Published: Wednesday 25th Nov 2020 by Sam

Megan Thee Stallion has unleashed ‘Good News’ – her debut album.

Arriving on the heels of chart-toppers such as ‘Savage (ft. Beyonce)’ and CardI B collab ‘WAP,’ the 17-song set continues the heat streak established by previously released projects ‘Tina Snow,’ ‘Fever,’ and ‘Suga.’

As reported, the album is off to a turbo-charged start on streaming platforms.

How does that translate into commercial performance on the charts?

With the first week figures in, the answer awaits below…

According to Hits Daily Double, ‘Good News’ is on-course to premiere on the Billboard 200 with:

92,000
[Sales Plus Streaming]
*****
10,000
[Pure Sales ]

Powered by bops such as ‘Body’ and ‘Shots Fired,’ it looks like Meg is eyeing a #2 debut behind K-Pop phenoms BTS.

    10k pure sales 💀

    Girl, what happened
    I was expecting more

    She literally has 2 of the biggest songs of 2020

      It’s getting old making fun of pure sales now sis. It’s different times pure sales are not really realistic anymore. When you don’t have to go out & buy an album because it’s right on the streaming service you pay for a month, pure sales figures are going to take a dip. The only artist who do decent pure sales is artist who have been established for a long time & that’s how they fans are used to doing it.

      • DC November 25, 2020

        Stfu her pure sales were low as well as her streaming numbers considering all the promo she has

      • Bravo!! November 25, 2020

        You’re correct!

      • Meme November 25, 2020

        You do release pure sales doesn’t mean going out to a store physically to buy a CD right, lol. You can purchase the album from your phone as well.

    • DC November 25, 2020

      People don’t support they just talk and make tik tok videos but from the looks of it didn’t really support album her second week sales gonna be terrible

    • XYZ November 25, 2020

      Pure Sales are dead. Hell, who buys CDs? I dont even have a cd player anymore and Megan’s target group ist younger than me.

      • DC November 25, 2020

        Paid album download from iTunes counts as a pure sale not steam try again she flopped

      • Theman November 25, 2020

        Quite a few people do, that vinyl, which is soaring, iTunes and physical sales. It’s a combination of all three.

    • OOPS November 26, 2020

      Megan’s fans don’t buy vinyl— to be expected

  2. Clarks0o0ñ November 25, 2020

    Either way it’s a win for megan cause she owns her masters.

  3. IAmKingBishhhh November 25, 2020

    Y’all have to remember she didn’t release a physical edition of the album which could factor in why Traditional TSA sales are so low.

    • Clarks0o0ñ November 25, 2020

      Nothing stop people from downloading an album

  4. Gee November 25, 2020

    Those numbers are not good considering she is everywhere as far as the music, and her personal life. Based on having two huge songs this year, and being all over the place I see her doing at 110-120K first week. In all seriousness her album is subpar. Compared to some of her rap sisters debut albums hers was a major disappointment. Being #2 is not such a bad thing in this case but I was expecting more.

  5. #WAP November 25, 2020

    I’m surprised and happy for Meg! I was expecting 60k max so this is great! Congrats Hot Girl Meg!!!

    • #WAP November 25, 2020

      Although I think the album for the most part is garbage. Fever and Tina snow were much better as bodies of work

  6. Ratedxxx November 25, 2020

    Hahaha…

    I thought beyondfake was the queen of all..

    You mean to tell me after all that axx kissing
    Was going to sell more albums

    Even cardi b fake ass was supposed to save her axx..

    Dead

    So all that crap about getting shot, didn’t help either

  7. 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) November 25, 2020

    Suck those asian d😂🤣😂😂 all the hype for Megan da t-r-a-n/n-y don’t mean 💩 not even half of Nicki or Cardi b debut album first Week sale 👎👎👎👎

  8. DC November 25, 2020

    All this shaking and promo and can’t even sell 100,000 first week i expected more she was bragging about having number 1 album in the world last week 😂😂😂😂

  9. Hellcat November 25, 2020

    I’m not surprised at these numbers. More than average but still a major underperformance. Meg has a lot of press and two #1 hits however she still hasn’t reached superstardom. I don’t think she ever will at this point. She appeals to a niche market. A more successful City Girls tea. Cardi sold 250k SPS, 100K pure sales.

    • Tix toc November 25, 2020

      The difference between Cardi and Meg is anticipation. 2-3 years ago the anticipation for Cardi’s album reached a feverish pitch. Meg nooooootttt so much. She became a meme and hot topic but judging by the sales and multiple flop singles the interest in her music isn’t there. One can only twerk and stick their tongue out so much…………..

  10. Updated November 25, 2020

    How the hell did she sells less in pure sales than Brandy of all people lmaoooooooo. Issa flop

    • Christopher Gomes November 25, 2020

      F*** u and your shade towards Brandy !! Disrespectful h**!!

      • Updated November 25, 2020

        Why you mad lmaoooo it’s a compliment

  11. DC November 25, 2020

    If you think about it her streaming numbers not all that wap took her to another level guess cardi free promo can’t help her album numbers

  12. Clarkson November 25, 2020

    All those bullet fragments and hype didn’t translate into sales 💀

    This. Is. Embarrassing.

    💀💀💀💀💀

  13. DKS November 25, 2020

    I don’t understand why Meg keeps coming up short. Why aren’t the Hotties actually supporting her where it counts? The sales. I thought it was “protect black women”. Empty twitter think pieces and protests just to not actually purchase or stream her art.

  14. Holliewuudd November 25, 2020

    I’m confused at why yall are so pressed when the FACT is that her album would be number 1 if BTS didn’t come out of nowhere…which is a huge improvement over her previous efforts. Its definitely a win! Congrats, Meg!

  15. Detruth November 25, 2020

    I would never call a top 5 debut a flop. That wouldn’t be considered a flop back in the day however those actual streaming numbers are not great considering how much press she’s had. She really has been the most visual female rapper this year and can’t do over 100k sps that’s not good.

  16. Pat November 25, 2020

    Jhené Aiko. One of the most elusive artist without hype or big budgetsold way more. This is underwhelming no matter how u spin it. Agreed that she’s appears to be a niche artist

  17. BradLitt November 25, 2020

    These aren’t good numbers for someone of her caliber no matter how you spin it. Her pure sales should be more and streaming numbers should be 150K minimum. Something isn’t adding up for me🤔

  18. GOOD NEWS November 25, 2020

    Let’s see…

    Two #1 hits
    Grammy nominated
    #2 debut album

    I say Meg is winning! B****** grouping her with the flop ghetto ass City Girls is delusional. She selling more than Queen did

    • BradLitt November 25, 2020

      You’re the delusional one. Meg sold less than Summer Walker and barely more than Kehlani. The numbers aren’t adding up to her hype.

    • Darling November 25, 2020

      What Queen???? I know not Nicki’s because that sold 185K first week. Lie again!!

  19. Darling November 25, 2020

    A flop but not surprising. That music is some trash. The Body song is cringey. She rode Beyonce and Cardi coattails for #1’s while all of her solo songs failed to make an impact. Better luck next time tr@Nny.

  20. Beam Me Up Scotty November 25, 2020

    Nicki did better on her 4th album, just sayin’

    • Swifter2020 November 25, 2020

      100🙌🏼 Fact!!

    • Updated November 25, 2020

      PERRRRRRR!!!

  21. Theman November 25, 2020

    These are actually very good numbers for a female rapper with streaming. Even with the sales climate her pure sales should be higher. Her not releasing a physical addition yet could have hindered her sales too. They should have the album available on all formats.

    • Updated November 25, 2020

      Good numbers where?????????

    • DC November 25, 2020

      Stfu these numbers are terrible for all that promo stop being in denial

  22. Swifter2020 November 25, 2020

    I was hoping she’ll be up in 200k, with all of the hype, promos, and some of the biggest records of the year. Megan is a dope artist, but people are not buying it for some reason. Pure sales are not what they’re use to be, however they’re still exist and artists are still pulling in numbers. So stop making excuse for Meg. The album itself is ok, it’s not as cohesive… hopefully she’ll be better next round.

  23. Bardii November 25, 2020

    INVASION OF PRIVACY sold 255K first week!!! I thought Meg was the reason for WAP’s success?? Cardi and Bey said your welcome Megan! 😂😂😂

    • DC November 25, 2020

      Meg hadn’t ever had a hit like wap cardi helped her and no song meg has had including savage has that many streams

  24. Hottie🔥 November 25, 2020

    Y’all haters do realize that these are only predictions right? The week isn’t over. Meg will crush all expectations and the seething will commence. Just wait on it… !

    • Updated November 25, 2020

      Omg the delusions lmaooo you don’t believe that s*** yourself. If hitsdailydouble predicted that s*** it’s true. Brace yourself for the breakdowns dummy

    • DC November 25, 2020

      Stfu meg ain’t crushing s*** them sales low 😂😂😂😂😂

  25. tyty November 25, 2020

    Meg solo stuff fails because she doesn’t know how to be versatile and balance raw and raunchy with being commercial. She does it well on her features but becomes stuck on her own solo material. Cardi is able to balance it perfectly. The incessant twerking doesn’t help either. If she wants to dance she needs to be more fluid and do some versatile choreography. The image, promo etc….is all there the music just isn’t hitting. SHE NEEDS GHOSTWRITERS. The way she initially handled the tory lanez situation turned her into an internet joke, the fashionova line was an ugly mess especially stealing from black designers.

  26. J November 25, 2020

    MEGAN THEE FLOP

    might be time to hang it up sis

  27. DC November 25, 2020

    Clearly everyone shaking and making tik tok videos to Body not supporting album people just wanna be a part of s*** and don’t support

  28. He Did That November 26, 2020

    Everything about Meg is cheap. Her production, her style, her flow, her lyrics. She gives very much low budget teas. She needs some major polishing if she wants to really make it. Firstly She needs to get that body together because she looks sloppy. Some cardio and lifting to tone up those arms and mid section would do her well. Secondly, she could benefit from new producers and ghost writers to help her out. Her most recent single is horrific and never shoulda seen the light of day. These numbers better be a wake up call to her and her team. Now is the time to get it tf together before we completely move on from her. Ijs pooh
