“8 Letters,” the debut studio album from boy band Why Don’t We, will land near the top of this week’s Billboard Top Album Sales and Billboard 200 charts.
According to Hits Daily Double and BuzzAngle, “8 Letters” sold approximately 38K pure US sales during the August 31-September 6 tracking period. With units from track sales and track streams included, it generated about 45K in first week consumption.
Due Sunday, Billboard’s more authoritative data may differ slightly from that reported by Hits. The Hits numbers nonetheless provide a very good indication of where “8 Letters” will land on this week’s chart.
The pure sales total should yield a #3 bow on Billboard Top Album Sales. Only Eminem’s “Kamikaze” (250K) and Troye Sivan’s “Bloom” (56K) sold better.
The consumption tally should position “8 Letters” in the #8-10 range on the Billboard 200.
