The second country release from a “The Voice” winner is pacing to sell just like the first one.
Based on opening day sales figures, Hits is forecasting a 35-40,000 bow for the self-titled debut from season four winner Danielle Bradbery.
Earlier this fall, season three winner Cassadee Pope’s “Frame by Frame” debuted to the tune of 44,856 copies. Initial tracking guessed the total would land in the 40-45,000 range.
The difficulty of accounting for Black Friday increases the margin of error on the initial forecasts, but they are certain enough at this point to confirm that Bradbery’s debut will not be a blockbuster.
Similarly, they are firm enough to rule out the possibility that Bradbery’s total will fall dramatically short of Pope’s opener.
Still tracking for 550-600,000, One Direction’s “Midnight Memories” will open as the week’s strongest debut–and as the number one album on the Billboard 200. A Day to Remember’s “Common Courtesy,” the only other major debut this week, is tracking for a 45-50,000 bow.
