Also, 40k perhaps in Japan? Depends on when her promo is, of course!
I'm never sure on what is considered success in Japan. Would 40K be considered good for her as a Western artist? Good, as in above the norm of most because she is a platinum-album artist there. I'll wait for your response. Thanks in advance.

As for the UK, I'm all here for surprises. Somewhere in the 55K seems very realistic but maybe she'll blow my mind! 70K or above would be slaying for that market, for a US girl, at this time.
I was waiting for Bey to drop so she could show that T&A arent the only ones smashing album SALES!!!

I agree, the Japanese market totally confuses me because it's so different from all the other markets out there... At least we have an expert of it on here :D !

Say no to streaming!

Oh, wow! So when Taylor said this was wrong she was telling the truth. Wildest Dreams and How You Get the Girl are switched. LOL it's SO close.

71% of Red sales were from Physical sales. ^^ Interesting.

Also a shame about the timing of the new rule where Billboard does not count pre-order sales in their charts as from last week. This cost SIO another week at #1 on Billboard Hot 100. :cry:

OOTW will get new peak this week. I predicted 90k-110k sold this week. And the airplay is still growing. Maybe 10m-20m airplay till Monday

I personally think SIO has peaked. OOTW sounds like a good second single.

Sorry, no way. 20m airplay is worth about 27k sales. If you want to know how much sales/airplay/streaming are worth, look at my signature. :wink:

It's all estimated to within a few %. I check it as often as I can, just incase Billboard changes the ratio. :D

A lot of insiders say 2nd single will be Clean, a power ballad written with Imogen Heap. It's the last track of the album but Our song, last song of Taylor Swift was a single, Change last track of Fearless was a single, Begin Again last track of red was 2nd single so it's not strange for her. Only expection is Long Live from Speak now (but really it was a single in South America markets).

SIO has peaked but still the top selling track (by some distance) and also still number 1 on Spotify (by some distance). There is no way that AATB is gonna be no 1 next week because the sales gap with SIO this week is much greater than last weeks. The only question for me is whether SIO can hold off the streaming for Hozier.

Kworb has said that his site is currently down! And also that itunes is frozen worldwide!!

So Taylor will stay at #1 and #2 and #1 Album forever! Or at least until kworb gets his site back up and iTunes gets unfrozen.

Over the last 4 weeks AATB led SOI by: 2.5m, 2.2m, 2.1m and 2.0m streams. As far as I know SIO has led on Spotify that entire time. This week, by my calculation, SIO was just 10-20k (sales) short of #1. So next week is a tossup in the race for the summit.

Also, you aren't saying Hozier is a threat for #1, are you?

It was the second pop single. Begin Again was promoted to country only. :D
