Bey's on track for a big bow, as track sales bump up her SPS score.
TOP 15 WITH THE GOOD HAIR (UPDATE)

We're holding at our previous Beyoncé projection of 475k-525k in album sales for her new Lemonade set (Columbia), and a whopping 575k-640k SPS.

Track sales fuel a TEA contribution to the latter total of 80k-90k. Tidal remains the big question, however, as it has not yet reported any sales or streams. What’s holding up the Tidal report, and can the industry expect more Mickey Mouse-ing around given the service’s recent claim of 250m streams on Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo?  

Bey's 2013 self-titled "sneak attack" set, you'll recall, bowed with 618k, so Lemonade appears on track for a comparable debut. Even Becky With the Good Hair has to bow down.

Meanwhile, Prince will have another blockbuster week with multiple titles; colossal track sales largely accrue to The Very Best of compilation, which looks set to notch a quarter-mil in album sales and close to 400k SPS. Prince, too, is streaming exclusively on Tidal.
