Barring a surprise release, Backstreet Boys’ “DNA” will debut as a comfortable #1 on this week’s Billboard Top Album Sales and Billboard 200 charts.

According to Hits Daily Double, the new album is expected to sell 180-205K pure US copies this week. The inclusion of units from track sales and streams should yield a consumption figure in the 185-210K range.

The pure sales figure should net “DNA” a #1 bow on the Top Album Sales chart, while the consumption tally should produce a victory on the Billboard 200.

In addition to the enthusiasm one would expect for a new BSB album, “DNA” is benefiting from a concert ticket-album bundle promotion. Albums redeemed as part of the bundle count as pure sales.
