Opening week US sales and consumption projections have emerged for Fall Out Boy’s “MANIA.”
Based on initial sales data, Hits Daily Double expects the new album to sell 105-110,000 pure US copies during the January 19-25 tracking period.
With TEA (track sales/10) and SEA (track streams/1500) included, the album should debut with 110-115,000 in first-week US consumption units.
Assuming those figures prove accurate, “MANIA” should be in contention for #1 on the Billboard Top Album Sales (pure sales) and Billboard 200 (consumption) charts.
“MANIA” is the follow-up to “American Beauty/American Psycho,” which debuted with 192K pure copies and 218K total units in early 2015.
In addition to launching in a more favorable sales climate, that album benefited from a hit lead single in “Centuries.”
Thus far, no “MANIA” single has made waves on the charts.
