NEW RELEASES:
PRAISE THE LORDE

Lorde will have her first #1 album bow Friday with Melodrama. After one full day of sales and streams, the Lava/Republic set appears headed for the 85-90k range.

Here’s what we know so far about these new releases.

Lorde (Lava/Republic) 85-90k SPS, 65-70k album
2 Chainz (Def Jam) 55-60k, 27-30k
Big Boi (Epic) 20-25k, 12-17k

In other Lorde news, the singer/songwriter has admitted that she was behind an anonymous Instagram feed devoted to onion rings. In a possibly related story, no one has yet stepped forward to claim the kimchi in our office fridge, which is now turning a fine shade of cerulean.
