The Game’s “1992” Pacing For 22-25K US Sales; JoJo’s “Mad Love” Now Projected For 18-20K

As we near the end of the October 14-20 tracking week, The Game’s “1992” appears headed for #2 on the Billboard Top Album Sales chart.

According to Hits Daily Double, “1992” is expected to sell 22-25,000 pure US copies this week.

Assuming the current projection proves accurate, “1992” should narrowly edge JoJo’s new “Mad Love” (~18-20K), Norah Jones’ “Day Breaks” (~17-19K) and Green Day’s “Revolution Radio” (~17-19K) for #2 on the Billboard Top Album Sales chart.

Kings Of Leon’s “WALLS,” which is pacing for 63-68,000 pure opening week US sales, will take #1.

With TEA (track sales/10) and SEA (track streams/1500) included, “1992” should generate 27-30,000 in total first-week consumption units. Such a total should position “1992” in the #4-6 range on the Billboard 200 consumption chart.

KoL’s “WALLS” (~73-78K), Drake’s “Views” (~40-44K) and “Suicide Squad: The Album” (~36-40K) will all land comfortably ahead. Twenty One Pilots’ “Blurryface” (~27-30K) and JoJo’s “Mad Love” (~25-28K) should join “1992” in the #4-6 territory.

“WALLS,” “1992,” and “Mad Love” will be the only new releases in the Top 10.
