UPDATE: Hits has revised their original prediction up to 85-90k
Industry mag, Hits Daily Double one-day sales predictions are in, and the news ain’t great for Kris Allen, who is predicted to sell between 75-80K his first week out.
Those numbers would make him the Idol winner with the lowest first week sells, taking the crown away from Jordin Sparks, who sold 119K her first week.
Here’s how the week will shake out, according to HHD
John Mayer – 275k-300k
Norah Jones – 150k-160k
50 Cent – 140k-150k
Casting Crowns – 140k-150k
Andrea Bocelli – 140k-150k
Justin Bieber – 110k-120k
Kris Allen – 75k-80k – 85-90k
Leona Lewis – 60-65k
Note Simon Cowell’s X Factor protege, Leona Lewis isn’t exactly busting up the charts either…
