Can Revival outsell Views initial week #'s?

Started by debauch, Oct 27, 2017, in Eminem

?

Will first week sales be higher than views?

  1. Yeah of course, he's Eminem.

    90.9%
  2. nah, he washed up.

    9.1%
  1. Is em big enough to beat views? Drake basically (consciously or not), broke a million with a streaming loophole. Em has no single yet and drake had like 9 months leadtime to rack 300 + million streams.

    For those that care about the numbers, review below and discuss / speculate while we wait for the drop.

    [Snippet from Stereo Gum]
    The only reason Views “has crossed the 1 million mark in U.S. sales and nearly 1.2 million globally” is because of the final song on the album; a late inclusion called “Hotline Bling.” As you might recall, back in February, the RIAA changed its certification methodology to account for “streaming and download consumption patterns.” Per the RIAA’s new rules, “1,500 on-demand audio and/or video song streams = 10 track sales = 1 album sale.”

    Initially, “Hotline Bling” was a loosie for Drake, but because it’s now included on Views, all those old streams are counted toward the album’s sales total. Per Forbes:

    On just Spotify alone, recently released singles “One Dance” and “Pop Style” have amassed 67 million and 18 million global plays, respectively. Upon Views’ release, any of those plays that occurred in the United States will apply not only to those songs’ qualifications towards RIAA digital single certifications, but towards the album certification as well. By the RIAA’s new methodology, that amounts to potentially tens of thousands of applicable and attributable sales the second Views drops, though notably it won’t factor into its placement on Billboard’s album charts.

    Furthermore, the inclusion of 2015 single “Hotline Bling” as a bonus track could send Views’ RIAA numbers skyrocketing. With well over 400 million Spotify streams worldwide and close to 700 million official YouTube plays globally on Drake’s Vevo channel, this aging hit could be the infusion that sends Views well on its way to multi-platinum status before year’s end.

    Got that? It’s not that the sales numbers being bandied about by Republic are technically inaccurate; it’s that the May 2016 numbers are artificially inflated by a song released in July 2015, which didn’t even become a hit until its video was released in October 2015.

  11. Pretty sure since Em told half his fan base to f--k off the other week, this album will have the weakest first week sales of any of his albums including HTS

  12. That won’t effect his sales in a negative way. Sure there will be some that don’t go out and buy it. But the majority will become stans again the second his first single comes out.

  18. I'm not so sure myself, the loophole really gave drake an advantage.

    You gotta remember, even Eminem's own recent work never did a million week 1. Not relapse, recovery, or MMLP2.

    Streaming numbers have grown since then, but I doubt you will see north of a million.

  20. Recovery and MMLP2 would've done a Million first week if streaming was included at the time.
