The Killers’ new album “Wonderful Wonderful” is headed for #1 on this week’s Billboard Top Album Sales and Billboard 200 charts.
Based on opening day sales data, Hits Daily Double projects “Wonderful Wonderful” to sell 105-110,000 pure US copies this week.
With TEA (track sales/10) and SEA (track streams/1500) included, the album should generate 113-118,000 in first-week consumption units.
The former figure should be enough for a #1 bow on Top Album Sales. The consumption tally should earn the album a #1 debut on the Billboard 200.
Assuming the week goes as expected, “Wonderful Wonderful” will be The Killers’ first #1 album in the US. The band previously peaked at #2 with 2006’s “Sam’s Town.”
“Wonderful Wonderful” predecessor “Battle Born” debuted at #3 in 2012.
