          • ORICON combined album chart:
            48(RE) Head Above Water 1,344 units
            Total: 49,373 units

            A side note to better understand how Japanese charts work. ORICON publishes a weekly physical albums chart (Top 300), a download album chart (top 30) and a combined album chart which includes physical sales, downloads and SPS (1,440 streams = 1 album).
            Unfortunately, they only have a top 50 for the combined chart which is by far the most representative of an album performance, and I hope they will eventually create a top 200/300 combined album chart who replaces the physical albums chart.
            The only way to get to know the album total is to chart inside the top 50. In the past three weeks, HAW was out of the combined album chart but still charting in the physical albums chart so I used this ratio to estimate its total units: 75% physicals and 25% downloads + SPS and I got 49,209 units so I was off by only 164 copies. This week her physical sales account for 70,2% of her total units.

                Interesting. Thanks for the contribution.

                Hopefully she releases the next single ("I Fell In Love With The Devil") soon.

                      • MJD recently analyzed BTS chart stats worlwide, especially their sales in Asia and China and he finally came to this conclusion:

                        If you are an avid K-Pop fan, you no doubt noted that our figure for Love Yourself: Tear fells below the 2.3 million number published by the IFPI for 2018 sales. The same is true here for Love Yourself: Answer.

                        After going in and out every reliable number for weeks, I concluded, against my own initial belief, that from this year the IFPI did account for download sales from China on their sales figures.


                        This is relevant for Avril's HAW, as the album has moved 145,000 digital downloads in China and it's still top 15 on Netease Cloud Music. I'm glad that he finally realized what I've been saying for months.

                              I estimated around 121,150 SPS including pre-release TEAs and SPS
                              44,600 pure sales /63,600 SPS + ~ 18,000 TEAs + ~ 20.000 SPS + SPS from video streams (for RIAA purposes): ~ 19,150 = 121,150 units

                                Thanks for all your work during the last months in this thread
                                But I wouldn't count video streams to album sales (or was there a change in billboard rules?), so I guess it's safe to say that HAW is around 100k actually.

                                  Billboard doesn't count them, but RIAA does as I explicitly noted but only for certification purposes.
                                  From RIAA:
                                  1,500 on-demand audio and/or video streams from the album count as 1
                                  Unit for certification purposes.

                                        Idk, WW or US. They been saying that it surpassed 2M recently.

                                                • I think they had so many more further plans for this album but once they realized it was selling that low they just cancelled them. I don't like it when artists / labels cut-short eras like that because of underperming results. Producing music videos and sending singles to radio is not that expensive, I've seen artists selling less than this and releasing 4-5 music videos and promoting a lot. Some labels are just cheap.

                                                    This!

                                                    Also, singles and music videos literally are promotion for an album! What part of that don’t these labels understand??
