Early sales projections have emerged for Maroon 5’s “Red Pill Blues.”
Based on opening day data, Hits Daily Double projects “Red Pill Blues” to sell 85-95,000 pure US sales during its first week.
With TEA (track sales/10) and SEA (track streams/1500) included, “Red Pill Blues” should generate 95-115,000 in total first-week consumption units.
With Sam Smith’s “The Thrill Of It All” pacing for upwards of 165,000 sales, a #1 debut is out of the question. But insofar as data for Blake Shelton’s new “Texoma Shore” is not yet available, it is not yet clear whether “Red Pill Blues” has a shot at #2.
Other notable new releases include Kid Rock’s “Sweet Southern Sugar” (projection unavailable) and Kelsea Ballerini’s “Unapologetically” (29-32,000 pure US sales, 33-38,000 total US units).
