Now we have an actual date confirmed for the 29th

And (at the time of typing) we donít have a chart battle on our hands I thought Iíd make a thread on whatís were thinking the album will sell in week one and where itíll chart. (I know itís not the most important thing but still wondering opinions on this)

Iím thinking we could push for around 35K in the Uk for a #1 debut. I have a feeling we could get slightly better debut sales than both Joanne and ASIB or around the same level. I canít see it matching ARTPOPs 65K but I do think longevity wise itíll outlast that on the charts.

Iím thinking a UK and US #1 debut. Unsure on the US sales though.... maybe something like 225K.

I'm really hoping for #1 in the UK and US. Maybe around 20k in the UK and no idea for how the US is looking - 200k?

(We can do a poll on the actual release week but can use this for discussion in the mean time biggrin.gif)

Iím thinking this will be her album to get the biggest streaming sales for week one too!

Joanne got something like 4K from streams didnít it laugh.gif I think we could push for around 10K sales from streams this time around if not more but I donít wanna get too carried away as I feel her actual pure sales will be what will benefit an act like Gaga for week one but her becoming more successful on streaming is whatís making me think this will have a longer chart run and it not being a Q4 release too.

In terms of longevity, it really depends on what sort of hit the second single is. A lot of the streams will fall after week 1 unless the single is a hit which will keep numbers ticking!

With the merch available and various formats, I think Chromatica will do over 200k in the US.

UK is harder to predict but over 30k wouldbe great.

20k would be tragic, but i suppose physical sales will be down due to lockdown. Maybe around 28k?

Gaga will have a lot of fans whoíll be buying from her own store and getting more than one copy too so I think that could help her out. Very intrigued to see her pre orders.

It was #1 on mine for a while but often gets overtaken by newly announced albums or albums released nearer to hers.

Itís the most pre ordered album set for release on May 29th though!

If you go on the iTunes Store main page and scroll a bit it should be there x

I feel like, even with the lockdown 20k would be a bit low. Joanne did more and that was the least hype of her career, ik the physical (buy physical by Dula Peep on iTunes) market has collapsed since but it'll have been mostly loyal fans who bought it then and they'll still get it now. I'm gonna say about 9k on streams and 22k pure and between 28-35k overall happy.gif

Over 30k would be amazing, but I can't see it happening, especially in the current circumstances with limited shopping and travel allowed

I think around 30k too. 20k would be too on the low side, although an easy #1 all the same.

Lady Gaga had only a few big stadium shows to offer fans; her records may not be bulletproof, but her touring, thus far, has been. The question is, how long will it stay that way? Her 5/29 drop date is now official; a ticket bundle should assure her of a #1 bowóunless something drops that can do 200k first week, which would likely be a stretch for Gaga at this point. Then again, it would be unwise to underestimate the star, her fans or the market prowess of IGA. Will she cancel/postpone her scheduled dates once the ticket bundle is verified?

What a sour loser bitch!!!

I think between 25 and 28k in the UK as the current situation will dampen her sales.

Definitely both #1 but I think sales in the UK will be dire... we all thought Dua's first week album sales would be huge and it kind of tanked due to the current album sales situation sad.gif

Yeah that's my thought too. I can't see sales being decent by any means. Enough to get the #1 unless someone else releases, but the numbers will be very.. eek! Oh well, it's a troubling time for many, so I'm just happy the music will be a release for many!
