Nayeon’s “Na” Projected To Earn #1 On Top Album Sales Chart, Taylor Swift To Score 9th Week Atop Billboard 200

This week’s album race should end in a split-chart scenario.

Projections for this week’s US album race have finally emerged, and they foretell a split-chart scenario involving Nayeon and Taylor Swift.

“Na,” the latest solo EP from TWICE member Nayeon, should take first-place for pure US sales. Hits Daily Double projects the album to sell 51K copies this week; no other album is presently trending to surpass 30K in sales.

Pure sales performance defines placement on the Billboard Top Album Sales chart.

With units from track sales and streams included, the Nayeon EP should land at around #6 on the overall Billboard 200. Taylor Swift’s “The Tortured Poets Department” should secure a ninth week in first place on that listing, courtesy of another 121K in tracking period units.
