The Predictions Are In! Lizzo’s ‘Special’ Album Set to Sell…
Written by torresanz on July 21, 2022
Lizzo has been lighting up the singles charts with her viral smash ‘About Damn Time.’
Will its success translates to the album chart now that its housing LP ‘Special’ has arrived?
The first-week sales predictions are in and bring with it the answer.
Serving as the follow-up to 2019’s breakthrough set ‘Cuz I Love You’ (home to the likes of ‘Truth Hurts’ and ‘Good As Hell’), ‘Special’ also follows last year’s top 10 Cardi B collaboration ‘Rumors’ – which interestingly doesn’t appear on the project.
Still, fuelled by the seemingly unstoppable run of ‘About Damn Time’ and a variety of retail configurations, the album looks poised to open with solid numbers on the Billboard 200.
According to Hits Daily Double, ‘Special’ is poised to premiere with the following sales:
While it won’t be enough to best the reign of Bad Bunny’s ‘Un Verano Sin Ti’ (which looks set to sell another 100k), it does place Lizzo in contention for a high opening on the coveted count. Notably the highest of her career to date.
