This past Saturday, Hits Daily Double noted that Metro Boomin’s “Not All Heroes Wear Capes” was pacing for 3-4K pure US sales and 45-55K total US units in its first week of tracking.
The publication has since upgraded the consumption projection.
The album is now expected to generate 80-90K in total first-week units.
The unit sum, as a reminder, encompasses album sales, track sales and track streams. Hits still expects the album sales component to land in the 3-4K range.
A consumption debut of 80-90K would give “Not All Heroes Wear Capes” a shot at #1 on the Billboard 200. The enduring “A Star Is Born” soundtrack will also be in that general range.
