Quantcast
Riri: Vying for a new crown.
NEW RELEASES,
NEW NUMBERS

Rihanna’s ANTI may already have been certified platinum, but the million copies given away to fans (paid for by Samsung) will not factor into her first-week total, which is based only on consumer purchases. 16k of her SPS total (streams and single sales) won't count for this week, as they happened on Thursday. But that won't necessarily prevent her from being #1 on our next Album and SPS charts. Here’s how the week’s new releases are shaping up.

Rihanna (Westbury Road/Roc Nation) 95-105k album, 120-130k SPS
Kevin Gates (Bread Winner's Association) 75-80k, 80-85k
Sia (RCA) 70-75k, 80-85k
Charlie Puth (Artist Partner Group) 45-50k, 60-65k
Dream Theater (Roadrunner) 23-26k, 25-27k
Tedeschi Trucks Band (Fantasy/Concord) 17-20k, 18-21k
