Imagine Dragons are releasing their new album so the competition would be hard. But hey, I want longevity and a multiplatinum album and not a quick #1 based on smoke, rainbows and tour bundles.

Ariana would slay ID. She is huge and TYN is shaping up to be a huge hit. Natural isn't as big as Thank You, Next.

Who knows, I just said it would be difficult not impossible :wink: And Imagine Dragons come from an era with 2 +800M streams singles which are still inside the Top 100 with an oustanding and really rare longevity.

Competition is good sis, there is room for everyone 8-)

Ariana Grande Aiming For First Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 With 'Thank U, Next

11/8/2018 by Gary Trust

Ariana Grande is vying for her first No. 1 on next week's Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated Nov. 17), as her new single "Thank U, Next" could blast in at the summit, following its release late Saturday night (Nov. 3).  

The Hot 100 songs survey blends weekly streaming, airplay and sales data, according to Nielsen Music.

According to building Nielsen Music data, "Next," released on Republic Records, should launch with over 50 million U.S. streams, 10 million in airplay audience and 60,000 downloads sold, placing it in line to arrive as the most-streamed and most-sold song of the week.

Album sales are a different story (she had a lot of hit singles but her album sales have really been abysmal compared to how popular she is) but obviously this is Ariana's peak. She has everyone talking about her personal life too so it adds a lot of interest.

^ Aw. I thought she has the #1 in the bag in New Zealand...

But incredible how she'll debut at #1 in UK/US with two days less sales!

So excited for this new album! I was so disappointed with Sweetener and I thought at the time of its release that it would take her another two years and a marriage before she releases her next album. :D :D

ID had 2 of the biggest songs on the H100 (of the past 30 years) in 2017. Their Album Evolve sold 688,000 copies so far (traditional albums sales), Ariana's last album sold 190,000.

^^^^

The ID debut will be great? The album is not top 50 of Apple Music US. The only song chartying of Spotify US is Natural (#72). Curious.

I believe in another debut with +200k for Ariana.

I know, but I asked, specifically, about the new album - the numbers do not look good for a competition with Ariana.

Oh, I didn’t understand your point of view, sorry. Well, they never had huge debuts but anyway, Ariana didn’t release a surprise album so we’ll never know.
