Despite its mid-week arrival, RM’s “mono.” reportedly posted impressive opening frame US album sales and consumption numbers.
According to Hits Daily Double and BuzzAngle, the BTS member’s solo release sold approximately 18K pure US copies during the October 19-25 tracking period. With units from track sales and streams included, it generated about 22K in first-week consumption units.
While Billboard’s more authoritative data may differ slightly from that reported by Hits, it is clear “mono.” will fare well on this week’s US album charts.
Based on the Hits data, “mono.” should debut in the #5-8 range on the Billboard Top Album Sales (pure sales) chart. It should earn a Top 30 position on the Billboard 200 consumption breakdown.
