Opening week projections have finally emerged for Megan Thee Stallion’s “Good News,” and they confirm an impending #2 bow for the Grammy-nominated artist.
According to Hits Daily Double, the album is expected to sell 10K US copies during the November 20-26 tracking period. With units from track sales and streams included, it may generate 90-95K in first-week consumption.
The consumption figure should position “Good News” as a comfortable #2 on the Hits Top 50 (and the similarly focused Billboard 200 chart). BTS’ “BE” will take #1 this week with about 265K total units, but no other album is a lock to break 60K.
Should “Good News” indeed start at #2, it will become the artist’s highest-peaking album yet. “Suga,” which currently holds that distinction, went as high as #7 on the Billboard 200.
