HDD – Album Sales Prediction – Jan 10-16

Yesterday was a holiday, so we do not have any HDD predictions for this week. What we do have are the predictions they made for this week last Thursday. And, man, are they grim. A few weeks ago, Taylor Swift shattered the record for the lowest selling Number 1 album on the BB200 with 52K in sales for the week (Dreamgirls had held the previous record at 60K in January of 2007). Well, if HDD predictions hold, this week will demolish Taylor’s record with the top selling album moving a mere 37-42K. Brrr. It’s getting pretty cold in the industry.

After the jump, the HDD predictions. This is your daily numbers’ thread.
