Yeezy’s long-awaited G.O.O.D. Music Cruel Summer compilation album may have to settle for second best based on initial first-week sales projections.
Based on one-day estimates, Team Yeezy could fall short of toppling its competition courtesy of rocker P!nk’s latest release.
She’s the daring young diva on the flying trapeze. RCA diva P!nk’s latest, The Truth About Love, her sixth studio recording, is on target to be her first-ever #1 album, with a projected total of 200-225k. Her previous high was the #2 slot reached by the last album, 2008′s Funhouse. That would be enough to top Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music compilation on Def Jam/IDJ, Cruel Summer, which may have suffered from a brief, one-day absence of the album from iTunes, but is gaining ground quickly, according to one-day sales reports from retailers both physical and digital lucky enough not to find themselves part of Mitt Romney’s 47% cut-off. At this point it looks like it will sell in the 170-190k range. We’ll keep an eye on the battle as we head into Friday’s Weakend Chart Preview
