Ariana Grande’s “thank u, next” will remain a comfortable #1 on the Billboard 200.
According to Hits Daily Double, the album should generate another 140-150K total US consumption units this week. About 19-24K will come from pure album sales, with units from track streams and sales generating the balance of the activity.
With no other album expected to generate more than 75K in consumption this week, “thank u, next” is a virtual lock for the top spot.
The album will be celebrating its second week atop the chart, becoming Grande’s first multi-week #1 on the Billboard 200.
“thank u, next” debuted atop this past week’s chart with nearly 360K in first-week units.
