Projections have arrived for V’s debut solo album “Layover,” and they foretell a strong debut for the BTS member’s first solo album.
According to Hits Daily Double, “Layover” should sell 85K US copies by the end of the September 8-14 tracking period. With units from track sales and streams included, the album should generate 105K in total first-week US consumption.
As of right now, Hits has the album pacing for #2 in both columns; only Olivia Rodrigo’s “GUTS” is expected to fare better in sales (140K) and total consumption (295K).
The #2 sales position seems very secure; it’s closest threat for #2 on the overall Billboard 200 will likely come from Zach Bryan’s self-titled album. Hits expects the album to achieve 95K in consumption this week.
