Certain to land at number one on next week’s Billboard 200, Ariana Grande’s “My Everything” is on track to move between 150,000 and 170,000 copies in its first week.
Ariana Grande’s sophomore album “My Everything” launched on iTunes at around midnight, as scheduled.
The deluxe edition quickly surged to the #1 spot on the store’s album sales chart, as expected.
A lock to claim the #1 spot on next week’s Billboard 200 Album Sales chart, the album is powered by three Hot 100 top ten singles. “Problem (featuring Iggy Azalea),” which launched the project, reached #2–and remains in the Top 10.
“Break Free (featuring Zedd),” which followed and functions as Grande’s current single, reached a new peak of #4 on this week’s Hot 100.
“Bang Bang,” her collaboration with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj that appears on the deluxe version of “My Everything,” is also red-hot. The song debuted at #6 and currently holds the #10 position on Billboard’s all-encompassing chart.
Combined with general buzz surrounding Grande and high-profile exposure at the MTV Video Music Awards, the hot singles should help “My Everything” launch with a strong opening week sales tally.
Represented by the deluxe edition at #1, “My Everything” also owns the #7 slot via the standard issue.
