Opening week sales and consumption numbers have arrived for Bebe Rexha’s debut studio album.

According to Hits Daily Double and BuzzAngle, Rexha’s “Expectations” sold approximately 10.4K pure US copies during the June 22-28 tracking period. The inclusion of TEA (track sales/10) and SEA (track streams/1500) yields an opening week consumption tally of about 23.6K total units.

Hits attributes 3.5K of those units to TEA (about 35,000 track sales) and 9.7K to SEA (about 14.5 million track streams).

Based on the aforementioned numbers, “Expectations” should earn a Top 10 position on Billboard Top Album Sales (pure sales) and a Top 20 (if not Top 15) position on the Billboard 200 (consumption).

Billboard’s authoritative data – which may differ slightly from that reported by Hits – is due by Monday night.
