This past Saturday, Hits Daily Double issued its first wave of projections for Cardi B’s “Invasion Of Privacy.” It reported that the album was on track to sell 45-55,000 in pure US copies this week, while generating 175-200,000 in opening week consumption.

It has since released a markedly upgraded pure sales projection.

“Invasion Of Privacy” is now on track to sell 90-100,000 in pure copies. The inclusion of TEA (track sales/10) and SEA (track streams/1500) should yield a first-week consumption total of 215-225,000.

The pure sales total will secure “Invasion Of Privacy” #1 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart. The consumption figure will position the album as a dominant #1 on the Billboard 200.

The #2 pure sales performer should be Thirty Seconds To Mars’ “AMERICA,” which is expected to sell 61-66,000 pure copies this week.

That album (projected for 64-69,000 total units) will likely challenge The Weeknd’s “My Dear Melancholy” (74-79,000 total units) for #2 on the Billboard 200.
