Caleb Johnson Final Album Sales Prediction is 10K

Caleb Johnson Album Sales Predictions

The Hits Daily Double album sales predictions are in.

The industry mag predicts, based on sales information from retailers, that American Idol winner, Caleb Johnson sold 10,315 copies of his debut album Testify during its first week. The album landed at #30 on the magazine’s Top 50 chart.

The final prediction stayed in line with the one day forecast, calculated last week, which predicted sales between 9-11K for Testify.

Also releasing a record last week, was American Idol season 8 winner, Kris Allen. His 3rd studio album, Horizons, did not crack the Top 50. The album landing in the #50 spot, Don’t Kill the Magic, by Magic! sold 5,547 copies. Presumably, Kris’s Horizon sales fall somewhere below that number.

Nielsen Soundscan Numbers are released on Wednesday. We’ll have official totals for Caleb–and hopefully for Kris–tomorrow.

Caleb is still on track to have the lowest first week sales of a post-Idol debut album.
