XXXTentacion’s is on track for his first #1 on the Billboard 200 album consumption chart.
Based on opening day data, Hits Daily Double expects the artist’s “?” to sell 15-20,000 pure US copies during the March 16-22 tracking period.
With TEA (track sales/10) and SEA (track streams/1500) included, the album should generate 110-125,000 in total first-week consumption.
While the pure sales figure will not be the week’s best, the consumption figure will likely earn that distinction. As it currently stands, no other album is even expected to generate 100,000 in consumption this week.
Total consumption determines placement on the Billboard 200.
“?” is the follow-up to XXXTentacion’s “17,” which debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200. It generated 87,000 first-week consumption units; 18,000 came from pure sales.
