Maren Morris’ sophomore album “GIRL” essentially matched the opening week US unit total of debut album “HERO.”
The difference, however, is that it a far greater percentage of its consumption came from streaming.
According to Hits Daily Double and BuzzAngle, “GIRL” debuted with about 45K first-week US units. Pure album sales comprise about 24.5K, with the remainder of the units coming from track sales and streams (mostly streams).
“HERO” debuted with the same 45K unit total, but 37K came from pure album sales.
With 45K units, “GIRL” appears at #4 on the Hits Daily Double Top 50 chart. Though Billboard’s unit total may differ slightly, “GIRL” should also appear in the Top 5 of that publication’s Billboard 200.
