Hilary Duff’s first album in eight years did not sell nearly as well as its predecessor, but it did rank as this past week’s third-best-selling album.
According to Nielsen Music, “Breathe In. Breathe Out.” moved 32,720 copies during the June 15-21 tracking week. That total positions the album at #3 on the Billboard Top Album Sales chart; only James Taylor’s “Before This World” (95,868) and Adam Lambert’s “The Original High” (41,781) appear higher.
Released in 2007, Hilary Duff’s previous album “Dignity” was also the third-best-selling album during its opening week. Its first week sales total, however, was a considerably stronger 140,000.
With Track Equivalent Albums (10 single sales = 1 album sale) and Streaming Equivalent Albums (1500 single streams = 1 album sale) included, “Breathe In. Breathe Out.” boasts a first week consumption total of approximately 39,000 units. That gives the album the #5 slot on the revamped Billboard 200.
