YG’s “Still Brazy” Pacing For 27-30K Sales; Mumford & Sons 25-28K, Jon Pardi 18-21K

Projected to sell 90-95,000 pure US copies this week, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “The Getaway” will easily be the week’s best-selling newcomer (and best-selling album, period).

It is not, however, the only notable new release. New LPs from YG and Jon Pardi and a new EP from Mumford & Sons also entered the market this week.

Based on opening day sales data, Hits Daily Double expects YG’s “Still Brazy” to sell 27-30,000 pure US copies thsi week. The inclusion of TEA (track sales/10) and SEA (track streams/1500) should result in a consumption total of 37-42,000.

Mumford & Sons’ “Johannesburg” EP is pacing for 25-28,000 in pure sales and 28-32,000 in total consumption, while Jon Pardi’s “California Sunrise” looks set to move 18-21,000 albums and generate 21-24,000 in total consumption units.
