An initial prediction from Hits Daily Double claim “Britney Jean” will sell 115-125k units opening week, possibly placing her at number two on the Billboard 200 next week.
One Direction’s “Midnight Memories” sold 546,000 units opening week and launched them to the top of the charts, meaning their second week will prove pretty strong and most likely steal Brit’s number one.
Don’t fret. “Blackout” is one of (if not THE) best albums of her career and it landed at number two on Billboard in 2007. Britney’s said in many interviews this era it’s about the music for the fans. In other words DGAF about chart positions.
Don’t forget these are initial predictions and may change.
