Early US projections have emerged for one of the week’s biggest new albums.
According to Hits Daily Double, 5 Seconds of Summer’s “CALM” should sell 55-65K US copies this week. With units from track sales and streams included, it may generate 70-80K in total first-week consumption.
Data is still rough at this point, but the album does have a shot of being the week’s top new release. It should, moreover, be in the mix for a Top 5 debut on the overall album chart.
“CALM” is the follow-up to “Youngblood,” which earned #1 in the US on the strength of 142K units (117K from album sales).
