ZAYN’s “Icarus Falls” Pacing For 3-5K US Sales, 15-20K US Units

ZAYN released his sophomore album this week.

Early US sales and consumption projections have emerged for ZAYN’s “Icarus Falls.”

According to Hits Daily Double, the artist’s sophomore studio album is expected to sell 3-5K pure US copies during the December 14-20 tracking period. With units from track sales and streams included, it should generate about 15-20K in first-week consumption.

“Icarus Falls” is the follow-up to ZAYN’s solo debut “Mind Of Mine.” Released in 2016, that album debuted at #1 with 112K pure US copies and 157K in total consumption.

Specific projections regarding the “Icarus Falls” chart position are not yet available, but it does not appear headed for a Top 10 position on either Top Album Sales (pure sales) or the Billboard 200 (consumption).
