    Chartdata just posted this and they usually take their numbers from HDD but I don’t see anything there. Even the Weeknd’s second week forecast seem kinda low (100k+) so take this with a grain of salt

    This said I doubt she’ll crack 100k at this point

    Not surprising at all. She’s not that big in the US. Her debut barely cracked the Top 30.

    People in the US still don’t know who Dua Lipa is, so the low sales aren’t that surprising. Corona doesn’t help either. She’s more of a singles artist too which is disappointing cause Future Nostalgia is great. I still think she gets an AOTY nom tho.

    I still think she has the critical support for the nomination but she ain’t winning. This more hurts her BPVA chances.

    I don’t think you can completely count her out. Golden Hour did around 50k in its first week and debuted #4, that’s very similar numbers to Future Nostalgia. I’m not saying FN is the same & will win AOTY, but you can’t count her out for having low first week sales during a pandemic.

    100k seems realistic for The Weekend, 2nd weeks tend to be lower. He debuted with 455k – 500k, the most I’ll give him second week are 150k.

    And if Dua really does 50k first week then she is debuting #3, don’t think she’ll be 2nd.

    She won’t be #2 indeed. 5SOS will probably be above her and maybe Uzi too

    That’s a different conversation, Kacey is a country artist, Dua is a pop artist.

    There’s a certain criteria for pop artists that country artist don’t have. And that’s the need to be commercially successful. Of course every artist wants to be commercially successful but pop artists need to meet certain standards, look at Lorde and Lana del Rey, ‘pop’ artists that had great acclaim maybe even the most acclaimed of the year but their sales didn’t relate.

    agree but there is also differencr between pop star and pop artist. Lorde and Lana are pop artist but not pop star so their numbers aren not expected to be high. Dua lip is a pop star and she flopped. Unless she is stable and even rises with further hits, she is out of the AOTY race

    50k is an upgrade for Dua Lipa. She’s not an A-lister. So I don’t think she should be compared to pop stars like Ariana and Gaga etc..

    However let’s hold off on saying she’s the frontrunner for Pop Album. While I think she can win, I’m inclined to believe that she doesn’t have the sales for a win.
