Leon Bridges’ new “Good Thing” will not challenge for #1 on this week’s Billboard 200, but it may rank as the week’s top new entry.
According to Hits Daily Double, “Good Thing” is on track to debut with 57-62,000 first-week US consumption units.
Pure album sales should comprise 52-57,000 of those units, with the remainder coming from track sales and streams.
While “Good Thing” is currently leading the way among newcomers, it is not a lock for the top debut.
Rae Sremmurd’s “SR3MM” (55-60,000 units, 7-8,000 from sales) and Shinedown’s “ATTENTION ATTENTION” (55-60,000 units, 45-50,000 from sales) are also in the mix.
— As for the overall Billboard 200, look for Post Malone’s “Beerbongs & Bentleys” to retain the crown.
