Probably 120k which is really great for a debut album, and I'm sure by the end of it's chart run will close with 750k (inc. TEAs and SEAs)

Is that 120k traditional sales?

I like to refer to TEA/SEA aided totals as "units" and traditional sales as "sales". I wish Billboard would too.

Yeah that's what I meant which it will equal to 175k-180k in unit sales.

The album has been top 25 on Pre-orders in America for the last month which makes me believe that it could manage to shift at least 175,000 once everything is added.

United States (80)

Songs:

6. Lips Are Movin
10. All About That Bass
73. Dear Future Husband
111. Title
163. Close Your Eyes

Albums:

19. Title

150k max, anyone who seriously thinks it will sell many more due to 1 hit is just delusional. Just look at Sweet Talker..

160,000 in total. I can't see it doing more than 110k in sales as Ariana Grande was top 10 on pre-orders some times and only shifted 162k.

'All About That Bass' has also outperformed 'Bang Bang'. 'Bang Bang' was also available on Ariana Grande's album and Meghan pre-order has done incredibly well on iTunes in comparison to Jessie J.

It's a hard one to predict.

"Title" has been in the Top 30 on the iTunes album chart for quite some time, even though the EP has sold a fair bit.

At least 100k in sales, but with TEA/SEA added in, maybe 125k units.

I'm going to revise my figure.

Looking at some of the SEA & TEA totals on this week's BB200, I think Meghan can get at least 40-50k from that.

So I think she'll have a unit total between 140-150k.

No clue.

Sales are so low at the moment, so it's not impossible ohmy.gif

Top 5 for sure, possibly even Top 3.

Album pre-order up to #11 on iTunes ohmy.gif

I think that's the highest it has been.

#09 on iTunes and #130 before release.

At least she will comfortably manage to get to number one on iTunes and with the right promotion could hopefully get number 1 officially.

Hits Daily Double (January 13th, 2014):

"Meghan Trainor’s Title (Epic) will bow at #1 on next week’s chart with 175-200k, according to early reads. "

That's HUGE ohmy.gif
