No doubt. However, there has to be a game plan for the weeks to come. If she can sell, say 2m, in week one without any streaming, it makes sense to me to withhold streaming until she needs the streaming assistance.

SO if it sold 800k in an hour (I guess counting the 400k form per orders too).....what are the chances of it selling a million in the first full day alone? :o

Exactly, the second week will also be very big with streamings :D ....remember how much 1989 was streamed when it got released on Spotify not too long ago, years after it was originally released :o

I wonder if it'll stream next week, or if they'll do the ticket bundle instead and keep streaming for another week? So many cards could be played in so many different ways, it's masterful.

they promised it'll be away from streaming just for 1 week
it would effect her streaming if she doesn't put on streaming in its 2nd week

Loads of stores in the UK haven’t received their shipments for the album. I couldn’t even buy it today :roll: First day sales in the UK won’t be very impressive

The album release was adapted to each country's time zone or so I heard so I guess it's not out in a few countries.

I may have missed it, but I don't think either article said anything more than it wouldn't be available during the 1st week (the one even said "at least"). So I'm not sold on it being available next week, or even the week after. Who knows what their plan is, but they're in a good position to withhold it until they need it.

Well I hope it's available next week but yes they might just back it up until they feel the need for SPS to help out :lol: but even if they did a ticket bundle next week it would still be hugeeee but who knows

So is the Eminem team really holding back because they dont want to risk Taylor possibly blocking him? :lol: I don't think she will but with a ticket bundle and streaming she has a chance...

Looking back, 1989 sold about 90k in week 1. Based on how this is rolling out so far today, I think it could match 90k or even exceed it, being the anticipated pop follow-up that it is, but maybe you know something I don't. What has you thinking it'll do 50-70k given 1989's 90k?

Tomorrow so its not a massive deal but she still probably lost out on quite a few sales. I'll be surprised if the first day figures are higher than 1989 (47k)

I was hoping to buy the digital album on Amazon, but I only see the singles. Apparently it's only available via iTunes, digitally, for now?
