    SPRINGTIME FOR TOP 15

    Drake will take the #1 spot on our SPS chart this week, his third consecutive week at the top. Once again this week, four titles are in the race for the best-selling album: Ed Sheeran and Beauty and the Beast (holdovers from last week) and MercyMe and Mastodon (both new releases this week). A number of country acts re-enter the Top 15 after Sunday night’s ACM awards.

          NEW RELEASES: SMOKERS' LOUNGE

          The Chainsmokers should easily land on top of our SPS and album charts on Friday. If the projection holds, this will be the year’s fourth-biggest debut thus far. Will the duo's performance on SNL goose their total? We shall see.

          Pentatonix follow up their million-selling A Pentatonix Christmas with PTX, Vol. IV – Classics. The video for “Bohemian Rhapsody” dropped on Friday along with the EP and has already been viewed nearly 3 million times. Here’s what we know.

          The Chainsmokers (Disruptor/Columbia) 185-195k SPS, 155-165k album
          Pentatonix (RCA) 45-50k, 40-45k

            • As much as I loathe Chainsmokers I'm still impressed by their physical sales. I know people (or the Ghost of Timmy) will point out how they've had so many huge hits, but these days all that might only amount to huge SPS figures, not actually strong sales - especially considering the type of act they are!

              Comment


              • ^ Yeah especially considering the two singles from the album weren't particularly huge. By comparison, Bruno Mars debuted with 194k last year.

                Comment


                • Absolutely agree with you, Nackar. Funny to read your mention about Timmy because i thought about him as well reading these predictions and thought he may be disappointed. But i think these sales are absolutely outstanding for a dance act - it's not like someone like Calvin Harris or David Guetta even came close to these sales, and i'd count them as similar artists.

                  Comment


                  • These numbers are just INSANE for them. Have to admit that I expected like 40-60K lol. Can't wait for them to get away tho

                      • Streeting this week is Kendrick, of course. The TDE/Aftermath/Interscope star’s DAMN. looks like it's poised to debut at the top of next week’s chart with a projected number around 450k. Single “HUMBLE” is massive, currently sitting at the top of our Streaming Songs Chart with around 26m streams earned this week.

                          KENDRICK'S 200 MILLION

                          Kendrick Lamar will become the first artist other than Drake to collect more than 200 million streams for an album in a single week. Tracks from DAMN. (TDE/Interscope) have already been streamed more than 50 million times.

                          Kendrick Lamar (TDE/Interscope) 460-485k SPS, 275-300k album

                          John Mayer (Columbia) 110-120k, 105-110k

                          Meanwhile, Pyongyang is being evacuated, but we're sure it's nothing to worry about.

                          • Huge numbers for John Mayer considering the weird/messy release strategy

                            • I am traveling until Thursday without a computer so I cannot update this thread.

                              • The Chainsmokers' success is not surprising, they worked their way to get there, they released two hype EPs that clicked, they are only building up with the new songs, their strategy of not adding their three previous mega hits to the album probably made the general audience want to check their music out more.

                                It's also impressive for John Mayer considering almost two-thirds of his album was already available in two earlier EPs released this year!

                                    KENDRICK'S 300 MILLION (UPDATE)

                                    Kendrick Lamar will become the first artist other than Drake to collect more than 200 million streams for an album in a single week. And it's now looking like the set could reach heights as high as 300m. This would be only the second time since we’ve been monitoring streams that tracks from an album have been streamed over 300m times. The first, of course, was with Drake’s More Life only a few weeks ago, which pulled in 385m streams; More Life scored the year’s biggest debut with 505k.

                                    Tracks from DAMN. (TDE/Interscope) have racked up 150m combined streams at Spotify and Apple Music thus far. The DAMN. tracks occupy nine of the Top 10 slots on Spotify and the Top 11 slots on Apple Music.

                                    THIS WEEK'S CHART-TOPPING DEBUTS:

                                    Kendrick Lamar (TDE/Interscope) 480-510k SPS, 280-305k album.
                                    John Mayer (Columbia) 110-120k, 105-110k

                                      AN APPROPRIATELY DAMNED, POST-EASTER TOP 20

                                      Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. (TDE/Interscope) has officially surpassed 200m streams and is on its way to a possible 300m first-week number. While Drake’s record of 385m first-week streams of More Life (YMCMB/Republic) is safe, DAMN. has already sold more albums with three days to go in the chart week. This puts Lamar in a close race for the year’s top debut, currently held by More Life with 505k. We’ll update daily as the race tightens. Here’s how things look at midweek:

                                        KENDRICK VS. DRAKE: A NEW CHAMP

                                        Based on today’s numbers it appears Kendrick Lamar will beat Drake’s record for the year’s biggest debut. The TDE/Interscope star’s DAMN. is now looking to bow at about 510-520k SPS, surpassing the 505k for Drake’s Views; it’s already eclipsed Views in sales. While the race remains tight, Kendrick has emerged as the favorite. Stay tuned.

                                          2017'S NEW CHAMP (UPDATE)

                                          Kendrick Lamar will not only best Drake's first-week total for the top debut of the year—he'll do it by a substantial margin.

                                          DAMN. will surpass 300 million streams; it's only the second title to do so in a single week. The first, of course, was Drake's More Life with 385 million streams in the week ending 3/23/17. With album sales projecting to 325k (100k more than More Life), our updated SPS projection is 560k, giving Kendrick, Top Dawg's TDE crew and Team Interscope the year's top debut by a decisive margin.

                                          It's worth noting that Drake's set, which was released off-cycle (its first week was two days shy of a week), scored global streams in excess of 800m. His status as a streaming colossus has never been in doubt.

                                          Combined album and track sales for DAMN. will make up more than 60% of the first-week total. More Life's sales represented less than 50% of its first week.

                                          • ^ Of course a big difference between the two is that More Life was basically a mixtape... Great debut for Kendrick though.

                                              HOW BIG IS THIS DAMN. RECORD?

                                              Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. (TDE/Interscope) not only scores the year’s biggest SPS debut but also bests Ed Sheeran for the best-selling first week of the year with over 350k in album sales. Sheeran’s ÷ collected 322k in its first week.

                                              In the age of streaming, it’s interesting that DAMN.’s debut, which also racks up over 300 million streams, will be made up of over 60% in sales (fans were snapping up CDs for signing at the pop-up in-store at a Compton Best Buy on 4/20, pictured at right). Sheeran’s sales to streams ratio was even higher, at over 70%. Yesterday we projected an SPS total for DAMN. of 560k; it’s appreciably higher today. Can it hit 600k? Stay tuned.

                                                    • Drake is still the bigger album draw between him and Kendrick by the looks of it.

                                                              CHART BATTLE BREWING?

                                                              Could a chart battle be brewing for early next month? Two 5/5 releases look poised to lock horns: The hotly anticipated follow-up from Mercury Nashville's Chris Stapleton and a new set from Def Jam's Logic.

                                                              Word of mouth on both records is strong; the current projection on Stapleton is in the neighborhood of 250k, while Logic is in the vicinity of 200k but continues to rise. Given the extraordinary streams on Kendrick Lamar and other major hip-hop titles, the buzzing Logic (whose album features guests turns from Alessia Cara, Killer Mike, Khalid, Chuck D and Neil deGrasse Tyson, among others) could enjoy a big consumption boost. Could the rapper outperform even these rising expectations? Meanwhile, insiders say some big TV looks and other considerations could affect the outcome. Who will prevail? Stay tuned.
