Hdd Predictions For Gaga: 125K In The Us.

Recommended Posts

While Cheek 2 Cheek seems to be really underperforming in the UK (it didn't make it to the Top 10 in the Mid-Week chart) its US debut is looking out surprisingly positive. 

 

I personally expected something around 70-80K but HDD just posted their predictions. 

 

Kenny Chesney (Blue Chair/Columbia Nashville) 125-135k
Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga (Interscope) 115-125k
Alt-J (Atlantic) 55-65k
Pentatonix (RCA) 40-50k
5 Seconds of Summer â€œAmnesia†EP (Capitol) 35-45k
Joe Bonamassa (J&R) 24-27k
Jackie Evancho (Sony Masterworks) 21-24k
Leonard Cohen (Columbia) 19-22k
Jennifer Hudson (RCA) 19-22k
Lenny Kravitz (Roxie) 17-20k
John Mellencamp (Republic) 12-15k

 

I'm surprised to see how Alt-J and Pentatonix are in for such a weak debut while their iTunes positions are way higher than Gaga's and they seem to be doing a lot better digitally. It'll be a close call between Chesney and Gaga. 125K and #2 is still better than Britney Jean and it's a jazz album. Hmm.

As someone in Alt-J's target hipster audience, I can easily answer poor sales: the album sucks and solidified the notion that they're a one hit wonder that stumbled upon a lucky hit. Reigning indie critic site Pitchfork ripped apart the album pretty brutally, and gave it a 4.0 out of 10, which is dismal by Pitchfork standards.

I'm happy it's flopping tbh, his voice is hella annoying and they're pretentious af. Relegated to orbit forever around Planet Irrelevancy now, somewhere around Urban Outfitters Background Music Playlist :bomt:
