How is Florence + The Machine’s “High As Hope” performing in the US this week? New sales and consumption projections answer that question.

According to Hits Daily Double, “High As Hope” is on track to sell 59-64,000 pure US copies this week. The inclusion of TEA (track sales/10) and SEA (track streams/1250 for paid services, track streams/3750 for free services) should yield an opening-week consumption tally in the 70-80,000 range.

The pure sales tally should notch “High As Hope” a #2 position on the Billboard Top Album Sales chart; only Drake’s “Scorpion” is tracking ahead.

The Florence album will meanwhile challenge Post Malone’s “Beerbongs & Bentleys” (projected for 68-73,000 units) for #2 on the Billboard 200 consumption chart.

“High As Hope” is the follow-up to “How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful,” which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200.
