Based on early data for the May 28-June 3 tracking period, Olivia Rodrigo’s “SOUR” will not repeat as the best-selling album in the United States.
The debut smash does, however, look headed for a second week at #1 on the overall chart.
According to Hits Daily Double, the album is pacing for another 15-20K in US sales this week. The inclusion of units from track sales and streams will yield an overall tracking period consumption total of 150-170K.
With Taylor Swift’s “evermore” projected for a six-figure sales total following the vinyl release, “SOUR” will not contend for #1 on the sales chart. Its consumption figure nonetheless looks safe for a second week atop the Billboard 200; “evermore,” the closest competitor at press time, is trending for 110-130K in tracking week consumption.
