Green Day’s “Revolution Radio” Pacing To Win US Album Sales Race

Green Day [NBC]

Green Day’s new “Revolution Radio” is predictably on track to win the weekly US album sales race. It should also claim #1 on the Billboard 200.

Based on opening day sales data, “Revolution Radio” is tracking to sell 74-79,000 pure US copies this week. Barring a surprise release, the tally will easily rank as this week’s best pure sales total.

“Revolution Radio” is not generating a particularly substantial amount of TEA (track sales/10) or SEA (track streams/1500), but its overall consumption total is also pacing to be the week’s best. A victory in the consumption race would result in #1 on the Billboard 200.

If “Revolution Radio” indeed debuts at #1, it will be Green Day’s first Billboard 200 chart-topper since 2009’s “21st Century Breakdown.” The respective components of the “Uno! Dos! Tre!” trilogy, which represent the direct predecessor to “Revolution Radio,” peaked at #2, #9, and #13.
