Early sales projections have emerged for P!nk’s “Beautiful Trauma,” and they are very impressive.

Based on early sales data, Hits Daily Double expects P!nk’s “Beautiful Trauma” to sell 290-340,000 pure US copies this week.

The inclusion of TEA (track sales/10) and SEA (track streams/1500) should yield a first-week consumption tally of 300-375,000.

Hits attributes the wide ranges to difficulty projecting the exact impact of a concert ticket/album bundle.

Early projections, moreover, always come with some margin for error.

The clear takeaway is that P!nk’s album is going to post very strong first-week US sales and consumption totals. It is a safe bet to top this week’s Billboard Top Album Sales and Billboard 200 charts.

“Beautiful Trauma” is the follow-up to P!nk’s 2012 album “The Truth About Love,” which sold 281K first-week copies in the US.
