    So glad to hear Misha B is touring with Nicki! 

    Why does the UK have so many acts I wish I could see in person? Ed Sheeran, Leanne La Havas, Maverick Saber, Rita Ora. . .

    Guess I’ll just have to bide my time until Jessie Ware comes to San Francisco in January.

  • standtotheright

    I find Allen Stone’s performance style a little over-earnest, but it’s a good pairing in that they both have some soul influences without sounding too similar. Hopefully his fans will be receptive.

  • SullyD

     I know, right? I’m so happy for Misha, she must be thrilled to be touring with Nicki.

    A Graphically Sexy Look at Album and Single Sales, Radio Audience (Starring Your Favorite Acts)  


  • girlygirltoo

    Of the albums on that list that are already out, it looks like most of those label projections ended up being too high. The one for 1D will likely be too low.

  • girlygirltoo

    MV for “Home” on Fuse right now — #7 on its Top 20 countdown

  • jpfan2

    I am shocked to see P2’s album projected by HDD to hit 150K. I hope they know something that I don’t because compared to past Idol releases his presales are just ok.

  • standtotheright

    We don’t know that those projections are by HDD. In fact, I’d suggest they probably weren’t, since that chart was posted after they predicted Lotus would move ~80k units and the chart had a projection of 125k.

    Maybe Interscope has the Nate Silver of prognosticators and RCA has the Neil Newhouse, but it wouldn’t shock me that those internal tracking numbers (which have apparently been bouncing around for weeks) don’t reflect actual pre-order sales statistics. That also, of course, doesn’t prevent a surprise to the upside on …Moon.

  • OffLeash

    From what I understand, those numbers are what the label is hoping for, not the HDD projections. The identical label projection was posted here before the album was even available as a preorder.

  • Eilonwy

    We don’t know that those projections are by HDD. In fact, I’d suggest they probably weren’t

    Invoking probability isn’t necessary. HDD says straight out that the numbers labeled “Project” come from the labels:

    Make a note of the first-week projections from their labels

  • elliegrll

    I doubt that the bulk of any artist’s sales come from people pre-ordering the album.  I don’t think that most people would see the point in paying extra for shipping and handling, when they can buy the album from a brick and mortar store.

  • standtotheright

    I must have been blinded by the picture of Psy in the blue smoking jacket.

  • mmb

    I suspect that P2s sales will be a little lower than the label projection, but I think that the projection makes sense given past Idol sales at this time of year.  Other than S9 every year there has been at least one contestant — be it the winner, runner up or 4th place finisher — who has sold in excess of 100K debut week, usually well in excess of that amount.  P2 is releasing black friday week; he has a hit single getting a ton of airplay; he is being well-promoted.  He doesn’t have the rabid fan base of Cook/Archie/Adam/Scotty, which is why the label is probably projecting in the mid, rather than the high 100ks.  It wouldn’t surprise me to see his sales fall well below the 100K mark, say in the 70-80K range…but there is certainly a good rationale for a 150K projection and he might just get there. 

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Most of the label projections at HDD match those posted at Pulse here on October 10, so maybe those numbers are legit:

    Rhianna and Bruno’s projections have changed in the HDD post, and they now have a projection for Alicia at HDD.


  • fuzzywuzzy

    Some album sales via UKMix:

    1) Taylor Swift – Red – 196,225 (After 3 weeks – 1,749,072)

    2) Various Artists – Now 44 – 98,698

    3) Rod Stewart – Merry Christmas Baby – 73,543 (After 2 weeks – 162,479)

    Other Debuts

    4) Ne-Yo – R.E.D. – 65,978

    5) Aerosmith – Music From Another Dimension – 63,052

    10) Third Day – Miracle – 29,042

    13) All That Remains – War You Cannot Win – 24,767

    16) Punk Goes Pop – Vol. 5-Punk Goes Pop – 21,066

    27) Glee Cast – Glee: The Music Presents Glease – 16,430

    33) Various Artists – Now Disney – 13,012

  • OffLeash

    Wow! Taylor will go double plat for Black Friday, in just 4 weeks. Not a fan, but damn, those numbers are shocking in this climate. 

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Sales predictions from HDD:

    TOP 15 GETS UNIDIRECTIONAL: In what will be the third-largest debut of the year (behind Taylor Swift and Mumford & Sons), One Direction will lead a Top 15 next week that could contain as many as 10 new
    releases. Here’s how it looks headed into the weekend (not to be confused with The Weeknd):

    * One Direction (Syco/Columbia) 535-560k
    Taylor Swift (Big Machine) 140-150k
    * The Weeknd (XO/Republic) 90-95k
    * Soundgarden (Seven Four/Republic) 80-85k
    Rod Stewart (Verve) 80-85k
    * Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 (Chop Shop/Atlantic) 80-85k
    * Christina Aguilera (RCA) 75-80k
    * Lana Del Rey Paradise EP (Interscope) 70-75k
    Now 44 (Capitol) 65-70k* Deftones (Reprise) 60-65k* Green Day (Reprise) 60-65k
    Jason Aldean (Broken Bow) 35-40k
    Mumford & Sons (Glassnote) 35-40k
    * Susan Boyle (Syco/Columbia) 35-40k
    * Whitney Houston (RCA) 35-40k

    * Debuts

    We hope this finally puts to rest any doubt about whether or not we can count to 15. Now stare deeply into the Amazon widget and repeat after us: “There’s no time like Q4. There’s no time like Q4 … ” (11/15p)

  • Taylor

    Who ever predicted Rod Stewart would have THE Christmas album of this season a few weeks ago got it right. I’m surprised at how well Rod’s Christmas album is doing and it will just keep selling more from now until the week of December 25th. Christmas album sales increase for the next six weeks.

  • girlygirltoo

    According to the article, those are label projections, not predictions from HDD

  • girlygirltoo

    so way low (1D), way high (Green Day), way high (Christina), way high (SuBo), high (Twilight soundtrack). slightly low (Soundgarden), way high (Whitney) and way high (Rolling Stones).

    Not a very good track record for the sales prognosticators at these labels

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I’m not surprised (I was one of the people who predicted that it would sell really well). David Foster was the executive producer, and he’s already had tremendous critical and commercial success with the Xmas albums of Josh Groban (5x platinum) and Michael Buble (2.5+ million sold, reissued this year). Rod Stewart has a Xmas special on PBS that will be shown repeatedly up until Christmas:

    Plus, he’ll be a guest on Michael Buble’s new Xmas special on NBC and Cee Lo’s special on the TV Guide Network and vice versa.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Yes, the majority of the label predictions are way high, often double or more what the albums actually sell. They are very rarely close to actual sales.

  • Taylor

    The prediction from the label and HDD for 1D is only 10% off. That’s not really “way low”. Soundgarden and Twilight are also within a 10-20% range.
    The label prediction for Scotty’s CAD was 150K last year, the same as P2’s. They missed it by being 25% too low.
    Predictions are all over the place, but it won’t be long before we get the predictions for P2 from HDD and those will be close to the accurate numbers.

  • tigervixxxen

    It’s fascinating to me to compare predictions, estimates and actual sales totals, all great info. It’s also amusing to me that the Pulse source proven as not just straight up BS when HITS confirms label predictions as their source.

  • mmb

    Rod has done really well with his Great American Songbook series…I think that has helped him reach a bit of a new audience.  I’m not surprised his Christmas album would do well.  I might download a few tracks.  Love him.

  • Eilonwy

    It’s also amusing to me that the Pulse source proven as not just straight up BS when HITS confirms label predictions as their source.

    Wait, does this mean that CWSM opening-week prediction from Pulse that I’d been mocking as obviously too stupid to come from the label came from the label?


    Honestly, those label predictions look to me as if somebody just took what they want as total album-cycle sales and divided by four, without regard to pre-orders, radio, or other factors that actually contribute to sales. Certainly the P2 prediction’s been floating around since before pre-orders started.

    For quite modest sums compared to what top execs make, I’d be happy to be employed by a label to take all the data available and build it into a forecasting model with lots of nice intersecting curves that make good Powerpoint slides. I could probably even work in a couple natural logarithms if that was felt to make it more “serious.”
