Earlier this week, projections emerged suggesting Little Mix’s “Glory Days” would sell 14-16,000 pure US copies during its first week of release.
BuzzAngle Music has released its final weekly figure, and it is indeed within that 14-16,000 range.
According to the music data tracker, “Glory Days” sold approximately 14,729 pure US copies during the November 18-24 tracking week. The tally positions “Glory Days” at #15 on the BuzzAngle/Hits sales chart.
With TEA (track sales/10) and SEA (track streams/1500) included, BuzzAngle says “Glory Days” generated about 23,261 weekly US consumption units. That figure puts “Glory Days” at #19 on the BuzzAngle/Hits consumption chart.
In the Billboard universe, the pure album sales figure informs position on Top Album Sales. Consumption determines position on the Billboard 200.
Due Tuesday, Billboard’s more authoritative sales figures (and chart positions) may differ slightly from those reported by Hits. The discrepancy will not, however, be enough to paint a radically different picture of the album’s opening week performance.
