ANOTHER BATTLE
FOR #1

There’s plenty more chart drama this week—it now looks like Drake and Beyoncé will battle for #1 in sales, with each headed to around 85k on our sales chart. Meghan Trainor’s sophomore release, Thank You, should land at #3 with between 73-78k. Meanwhile, Drake will remain on top of our SPS chart with a total likely approaching 200k. Indie rapper Chance The Rapper’s star-studded mixtape, Coloring Book, will debut with an album equivalent of 40-50k, enough for a Top 10 bow, on the wings of a splashy Apple exclusive. This is the first time an album has charted with only streaming numbers.

Meghan Trainor (Epic) 73-78k album, 95-100k SPS
Chance The Rapper (Chance the Rapper) 30-40k (SPS only)
Pierce The Veil (Fearless) 40-45k, 45-50k
Jennifer Nettles (Big Machine) 25-28k, 28-32k
Kygo (Ultra/RCA) 14-17k, 24-27k
