This Tuesday was a big day for music. Everyone from veterans like Willie Nelson and Jennifer Lopez to newbie Sam Smith dropped albums. However, it’s “West Coast” singer Lana Del Rey who will reign supreme.
According to Billboard, Lana, who just dropped her sophomore project Ultraviolence, is expected to have the number one album in the country next week.
She’s projected to sell anywhere between 170,000 to 180,000 copies, which is a phenomenal number for the singer, considering that her debut album, Born to Die, pushed 77,000 copies in its first week in 2012. Right behind Lana is Sam Smith, whose debut album, In the Lonely Hour, is expected to move around 150,000 in its first week. Linkin Park will come in at number three with 100,000 to 110,000 sold.
The artist who has to be blue about sales is Jennifer Lopez. It’s pretty clear J.Lo fans weren’t really luhing her new album: A.K.A. is expected to move only around 30,000 to 35,000 copies in its first week. That’s down from the 83,000 copies Love?, her last album, sold in its first week.
