While the battle between Justin Bieber’s “Purpose” and One Direction’s “Made In The AM” is naturally consuming the lion’s share of attention, several other notable releases debuted in conjunction with the November 13-19 tracking week.
Those releases include Logic’s “The Incredible True Story,” Jeezy’s “Church In These Streets, Chris Young’s “I’m Comin’ Over,” and Alessia Cara’s “Know-It-All.”
“The Incredible True Story” is thus far the best-performing of that group. Based on opening day sales data, Hits Magazine expects the album to sell 85-90,000 pure copies in the United States.
Jeezy’s new album “Church In These Streets” is currently on pace for an opening week US total of 60-65,000.
The Chris Young album looks like a safe bet for 50-55,000, while Alessia Cara’s “Know-It-All” should move 17-20,000 pure copies in its first week.
— The aforementioned Bieber and One Direction albums are currently pacing for 425-450,000 and 415-440,000 US sales, respectively.
