Little Mix have just announced they'll be releasing their sixth album Confetti on November 6th - same date as Kylie's fifteenth. Who will come out on top?

Copying my post from the Little Mix forum:

QUOTE(Liam.k. @ Sep 16 2020, 08:01 PM) *
I feel like Little Mix have more of an uphill climb after LM5 wasn't too well-received whereas Kylie has a lot of good-will behind following the success of Golden and then Glastonbury. As mentioned on the previous page too, Kylie's last album was only 10k behind the first week sales of Little Mix's despite being released in April compared to November - now Kylie has the benefit of the Christmas market too.

I don't think it's a clear-cut win by any means, I can certainly see the benefits for Little Mix this time around that they didn't have last time. I'm siding more with Kylie at the moment though.

+ Kylie having a two month pre-order advantage over Little Mix too.

It will probably come down to which artist is more desperate to get it by how many different formats they’ll release

sure Kylie will have 10 different cassette versions that all her loyal fans will buy
as seen with her last GH

I'd say Kylie's cassette sales alone could beat LM wink.gif

I think Kylie will clinch it. She’s an album artist and has managed to easily get the #1 album for her last few, whereas little mix are singles artists and have struggled to secure many #1 albums

Looks like only 1 cassette version so far from Kylie. Plenty of time to add more though.

As I posted elsewhere I think Kylie will win this pretty easily, depending on the competition I wouldn't be surprised if LM don't even get #2.

Little mix will have Saturday night promotion on their show.

If multiple formats they could win .

Little Mix will have a streaming advantage too. But atm I think Kylie has the overall advantage.

Sales wise what did their last albums debut with? I know Kylie got the #1 and LM didn’t but Little Mix usually debut with strong sales and are quite unlucky to have had more #1 albums than what they’ve had.

I think my numbers may be a little high, but I'm gonna say

60k-65k for Kylie
35k-40k for Little Mix

I think LM could hold up better depending on how well their reality show does (during the lives, they're rumoured to be performing something every week ofc - whether it's older stuff or exclusive new stuff wdk)

Plus Kylie will release more formats, I think. As well as I assume she'll be able to get promo throughout the entire week (her team are always BANG ON with promo slots and going all out)

I'm kinda hoping it'll be a 5SOS/Dua kinda battle where they try and one-up each other through the week, but I don't think it'll be close enough for LM to bother with doing that aha (assuming LM would have to do it first, for Kylie to counteract etc..)

EDIT: Who else is releasing that week?

If Kylie does 60K that would be the highest first week sales of the year so far I think thats a bit high.

I think both acts we’ll sell between 35 - 45K.

Heading into Q4, with 4+ months of pre-orders (not as much as 5/6 months as I originally thought though oops) and like I said, I'll be very surprised if she doesn't add more bundles and/or have heavy promotion that week (the situation on Corona providing ofc - if it's to remain as it is, I can see her doing all the morning shows and whatever evening shows are shown during the time)

I think Little Mix personally . They will have there singing show on around the same time which will be good promo weekly and also they will likely do better on streaming.

Little Mix have released the better singles so far. Kylie needs to pull something out of the bag for single #2, either way I can’t see this doing as well as Golden.

Ordinarily I'd say kylie, but LM have the advantage of being all over TV between now and then with their show so with a plug or 3

Think LM but Kylie is capable of grabbing sales and can do reductions and promo that will attract fans.

If I was Kylie I would so a picture disc Vinyl and another cassette

Also Kylie has also done A Say Something vinyl + download Disco album combo so could do the same with single 2.

BMG said Disco pre orders from both her own website and Amazon are ahead of Golden

What promo does Kylie have in store? Surely that week she will do G Norton, Strictly? The One Show? Could she have her own TV Special?

BMG are happy so far https://www.musicweek.com/labels/read/can-k...co-album/080856
