The lack of any build up, promo and successful singles itís obviously going to hinder it a lot. It also has the vibe of a much less commercial sound than her last few albums

Iím gonna say 25k In the UK and 400k in the US but that US number may be quite optimistic

FINAL ANSWERS:

UK (Sales + Streaming)
under 20k [ 0 ] ** [0.00%]
20k-29k [ 3 ] ** [23.08%]
30k-39k [ 6 ] ** [46.15%]
40k-49k [ 2 ] ** [15.38%]
50k-59k [ 1 ] ** [7.69%]
60k-69k [ 0 ] ** [0.00%]
70k-79k [ 0 ] ** [0.00%]
+80k [ 1 ] ** [7.69%]

we do pretty well on this one with just under 50% of people guessing the right range of 30k-39k, as Tay finished the week with 37k!

Will it be number #1 in the UK
Yes [ 11 ] ** [84.62%]
No [ 2 ] ** [15.38%]

yep and easily, stomp stomp stomp cheeseblock.png most people got this one right!


US (Sales + Streaming)
under 200k [ 1 ] ** [7.69%]
200k-299k [ 1 ] ** [7.69%]
300k-399k [ 0 ] ** [0.00%]
400k-499k [ 3 ] ** [23.08%]
500k-599k [ 3 ] ** [23.08%]
600k-699k [ 0 ] ** [0.00%]
700k-799k [ 2 ] ** [15.38%]
+800k [ 3 ] ** [23.08%]

lol. (and one +700k & one +800k came in the last couple days when we all knew it was gonna be around there xoxo). the average guess seem to be around the 400k-600k mark, the way she effortlessly smashed that!

Will it be number #1 in the US
Yes [ 13 ] ** [100.00%]

and yeah ofc we only needed one option for this, it'd be like asking is water wet
