Megan Thee Stallion’s “Good News” bested mid-week projections en route to a strong debut performance in the United States.
According to Hits Daily Double, the album sold just under 13K US copies during the November 20-26 tracking period. With units from track sales and streams included, “Good News” generated almost 103K in total first-week consumption.
The mid-week forecast called for about 10K sales and 90-95K in total activity.
Although several albums outperformed “Good News” on the sales front, the album debuts as a comfortable #2 on the overall consumption chart. Only BTS’ “BE” generated more US activity this week. The #2 debut represents a new career best for the Grammy-nominated artist.
Due Sunday, Billboard’s specific numbers may differ slightly from Hits. The overall outcome should nonetheless be the same: a #2 overall chart debut for Megan Thee Stallion.
