Red Hot Chili Peppers Are Leading Us Album Sales, but Lil Baby’s “It’s Only Me” Will Be #1.
This week will see the return of the “split-chart situation,” which is becoming an increasingly typical occurrence. The “Return Of The Dream Canteen” album by Red Hot Chili Peppers will come out on top in terms of album sales in the United States, while “It’s Only Me” by Lil Baby will take the lead in terms of total units sold.
Hits Daily Double reports that the RHCP album is on track to sell 54 thousand copies in the United States this week. The total is expected to be more than double that of any other album, which will unquestionably place “Return of the Dream Canteen” in the top spot for best selling album of the week.
When taking into account purchases of individual tracks and streaming, it’s possible that the album will produce 61 thousand in total activity. That should result in a #3 debut on the overall Billboard 200, behind the aforementioned “It’s Only Me” (which is forecast for a dominant 208K total units), as well as “Un Verano Sin Ti” by Bad Bunny (which is projected for 73K).
