Fall Out Boy’s “MANIA” topped early US album sales and consumption projections.
More importantly, it ranked as the week’s top two albums in those categories.
According to Hits Daily Double and BuzzAngle Music, “MANIA” sold approximately 114,512 pure US copies during the January 19-25 tracking period. The figure ranks as the week’s best pure sales total.
With TEA (track sales/10) and SEA (track streams/1500) included, “MANIA” debuted with approximately 127,488 in total US consumption units. That figure earns “MANIA” #1 on the “Hits Top 50” consumption chart.
At the onset of the week, Hits was projecting 105-110,000 in pure sales and 110-115,000 in total consumption.
Due Sunday, Billboard’s more authoritative data may differ slightly from that reported by Hits and BuzzAngle. The discrepancies should not, however, be big enough to affect the album’s ranking.
The pure sales total should earn “MANIA” #1 on Billboard Top Album Sales, while the consumption tally should be enough for #1 on the Billboard 200.
