Miley Cyrus’ new album “Plastic Hearts” debuted Friday, and early opening week projections are now available.
Based on early data, Hits Daily Double expects the album to sell 17-23K US copies this week. With units from track sales and streams included, the album should generate 40-50K in total first-week consumption.
The album will not challenge for #1 on this week’s Billboard 200, but it should achieve another solid debut for the star artist.
In terms of studio albums, “Plastic Hearts” is the follow-up to “Younger Now.” Released in 2017, that album debuted with 33K in sales and 45K in total first-week units.
In between the two, Cyrus released the “She Is Coming” mixtape. It started with 12K US sales and 36K total US units.
