As has become increasingly common in the modern music scene, this week’s US album race will produce a split-chart scenario.
aespa’s “Girls – The 2nd Mini-Album” is on track to claim first place for album sales, while Bad Bunny’s enduring smash “Un Verano Sin Ti” and Brent Faiyaz’s “WASTELAND” will contend for #1 in total consumption.
According to Hits Daily Double, the aespa release should sell 52K US copies during the July 8-14 tracking period. That figure should convincingly rank as the week’s best.
With units from track streams and sales included, the mini-album should generate 55K in total consumption units. That could be enough for a bow as high as #3 on the overall Billboard 200 and Hits Top 50 consumption charts.
Each on track for 100-105K total units, the aforementioned “Un Verano Sin Ti” and “WASTELAND” should battle for #1 on the overall chart. Unlike the aespa release, both will generate the majority of their activity from streams.
