Beyoncé’s First-Week Sales Predictions

Beyoncé

All eyes are on Beyoncé, whose new album 4 arrived in stores this week. Without a massive hit and a premature leak, just how will the superstar fare on the charts? Early sales predictions are in.

According to chart experts HITS Daily Double, B’s fourth offering is expected to debut at No. 1 with 275,000-300,000 copies in its first week based on preliminary figures. This would mark her fourth No. 1 solo debut on the Billboard 200. Her previous album, I Am… Sasha Fierce, opened with 482,000 in November 2008. These numbers are not final and are subject to change.

Beyoncé has been making high-profile appearances overseas this week to promote the project, which leaked three weeks in advance of its street date. She will return to the U.S. to perform on the “Good Morning America” Summer Concert Series on Friday.

Other debuts next week include Big Sean, whose G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam release Finally Famous is approaching the 90,000-95,000 range.

    @Cmonson, Exactly. You have no idea how many people hate the fact that Pon De Floor was entirely jacked not even sampled the whole beat was basically the same. Beyonce needs to change record labels and hire a new team because 4 is a low budget produced album.

    @Will, @Cmonson, Pon De Floor wasn’t jacked you bum, those who made that beat produce Run The World. Jacking is Stealing, and its not stealing when the producers gave it to her. And they also tweeted about. How did it flopped maybe because it didnt go to #1 so that means the 99 other songs are flops to huh? They didnt go to #1.

    why she gotta look like Big Bird Hooker in that pic tho!? >>> the album is ok… i only prefer three of the songs, Party, End Of Time, and of coarse Run The World… but im not feeling the other songs at all… despite bad reviews it will sell just because its Beyonce. Just like Britney Spears… But i see this as the start of her downward spiral in success. Her career peaked with Sasha Fierce… i dont think she can top that album unless she falls back for a while and let people miss her and really come out with a new sound, look and everything!

Have a third Thanksgiving special on ABC ? Oh I know win Billboard’s Millennium Award again next Millennium.

Could you see Kelly singing Love On Top, Halo, If Were A Boy, I Care, 1+1……or even the Grammy Awarded for best Vocals Single Ladies. And you making it seem like every artist has #1 songs. Just cause RTW wasn’t #1, doesn’t mean its over. Look up why it wasnt #1, Colombia confirmed it wasn’t suppose to come out around that time.

    I’m sure this includes Destiny’s Child’s albums. And Rihanna selling 80 million!!?? What?? music of the sun sold 2million, a girl like me sold 3million, good girl gone bad sold 7million, rated r sold 3million and idk what loud has sold. I’m not sure how singles are counted nowadays since it seems like overseas is the only place where cd-singles are still released.

  17. This Aint It

    Colombia Records is HORRIBLE. Beyonce could have had a wayyy better produced album. it could have easily been givin to an artist on there very first debut. Beyonce is a superstar now so she needs an album to showcase that and i feel this album is her worst. B day was better, Sacha Fierce was better, hell even her First album was better. She needs to find producers who can create a whole new sound for her because this album is playing it very safe its nothing new. Come with something new like cmon its just so boring hearing her new album so disappointed.

    I really think “Party” should’ve been the albums second single I think it will help the album alot I also think the song
    “Best Thing I Never Had” should not be a single

    I am 100% satisfied with those #’s. As long as she gets a #1 debut (4th consecutive #1) is all I care about which that is already guaranteed. I’m happy with the way this project has taken off, especially considering the initial response was pretty shaky. At the end of the day, it’s Beyonce and she definitely has a solid legion of fans. I LOVE THE ALBUM!

    IDGAF what anybody says, but 4 is an album that’s just as good as her previous efforts.

    That said, Run the World (Girls) would’ve been a great buzz single. I’m still not sure if it

    Well, realistically IASF only sold about 250k had she not billed it as a double disc. Beyawnsay been slipping. The 2nd week sales are gonna be the real test.

    @rockwitu, Girl sit _/ . We’re on “4″ not “IASF” .

    Kyle Reply:

    @rockwitu, Sorry but that’s not true. It wasn’t the right length to qualify as a double disc. An album has to be 80 minutes in length to be qualified as a double disc and IASF was nowhere near that length. I think the last album to really do that was Outkast’s “Speakerboxxx/TheLoveBelow.” Christina Aguilera’s double disc “Back To Basics” didn’t even qualify as a double disc, so yeah, IASF sold 3 million in the U.S. as a SINGLE DISC and 482,000 first week sales as a SINGLE DISC:)

    Shame shame shame to those haters who said she’ll flop! :P The album will debut at number 1 in almost 14 countries. Best Thing I Never Had is rising on the Hot 100 and when the video comes out it’ll be in the top ten/twenty.

    Poor Beyonce.

    She tried to be different and failed miserably.

    Her ugly stans talk too much shit for her to not be selling over 400K.

    “4″ does not have any single material. It’s Beyonce’s flop attempt at making real music.

    What is real music?

    Answer: Any music that doesn’t feature Beyonce.

    Number 1 is still great but 275,000 is not superstar numbers.

    2 or 3 years from now, i can see beyonce in an interview while she is promoting ’5′…

    Interviewer: so let’s talk about the sales disappointment of your last album…

    Beyonce: My heart wasn’t it in, after the project leaked a month before it came out, that hurt me.

Her album will debut number one, no matter with how many sales!(Y’all mad ?) Stop talking for nothing! SHE IS THE FIRST AFRICAN AMERICAN FEMALE ARTIST TO HAVE THAT RECORD (Her last 3 Albums Were Also #1). And the week is not over so she will sell more!!!

    Brilliant cd that grows on you with each listen.I love how her vocals have improved and how she has grown artistically rather than focusing on commercial hits.
    However she has dominated 4 so long that I think we were expecting “more”…it just feels as if something is missing from “4″.
    I’m sure the videos will be brilliant as always but its hard 2 find that “hit”besides” party” and a ballad.
    I do admire her originality in not following the “guetta sound” and auto-tuned breezy sound which every artist is mimicking now.so even if it doesn’t turn out to be the commercial success every1 is debating about I do see the evolution of B moving onto bigger and better things.

    Um last time I checked it doesnt take a million copies to go platinum in brazil like it does in the states. so I dont kno why yall are bringing that up when no one in the US cares. If lady gaga is struggling now even after that 1st week then beyonce doesnt stand a chance.

    Beyoncé may not be shutting down the game, but why should she? This woman has already proven herself multiple times. I am a huge fan, but I don’t lose any sleep over the fact that Adele sold more… Adele is an incredible artist as well, she’s getting recognized for what she does and that’s something positive. Don’t try to turn it into something negative, just ’cause you’re bitter. Beyoncé has nothing to do with Adele’s albumsales. Artists don’t compete with each other. When necessary, they’ll compete with themselves. But, in the first place, music is a form of art, not a competition.

    it is a sad assed day in life when people argue this profoundly about someone who is making a living off people wishing they were them. simple truth is real music died a painful death a long time ago. the requisite for a music deal with the big boys these days almost seems to BE a lack of real talent. whether beyonce or rihanna or britney or christina, none of these, er, ladies is anything but average with huge budgets behind their sorry no-talent asses. beyonce comes off as a self absorbed ego maniac who thinks herself way more talented than she has any right to. rihanna, ditto. shakira, dottp. christina, ditto (with her over-singing self). only britney, to her credit, seems to understand it is all bullshit. and anyone who would pay g.o.o.d money to watch some average chick lip sync and shake her ass…’nough said. pink is at least original. beyonce bit off toni braxton so hard(look at video He Wasn’t Man Enough by Toni Braxton) I bet she got pieces of tb in her digestive system.
