His Purpleness will have five albums in the Top 15 this week.
PURPLE PREDICTIONS

We'll have a full Top 15 for you tomorrow; in the meantime, here's how much music the late, great Prince (who will have five titles in that rundown) is likely to move on this week's chart. All these titles are on WMG.

The Very Best Of Prince 220-250k album, 360-380k SPS
Purple Rain 115-130k, 125-140k
Hits/B-Sides 50-60k, 75-85k
Ultimate 30-40k, 35-45k
1999 25-30k, 28-32k

Note that single sales have been exploding, and these account for the vast majority of the margin between albums and SPS; streaming is exclusively through Tidal.
