Thomas Rhett’s “Life Changes” predictably wins this week’s US album sales and consumption races.

According to Hits Daily Double and BuzzAngle, “Life Changes” sold approximately 94,160 pure US copies during the September 8-14 tracking week. With TEA (track sales/10) and SEA (track streams/1500) included, it generated ~123,341 first-week consumption units.

Due Sunday, Billboard’s more authoritative data may differ from that reported by Hits and BuzzAngle. The discrepancies will not, however, affect the overall outcome.

The pure sales total will earn “Life Changes” #1 on the Billboard Top Album Sales Chart, while the consumption figure will be enough for #1 on the Billboard 200.

“Life Changes” will be Rhett’s first #1 on either chart.
