Three major albums were released on December 11th — Bruno Mars’ Unorthodox Jukebox, The Game’s Jesus Piece and Big Boi’s Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors. Each one of them is projected to sell fewer copies in the first week at retail than expected.

In spite of Bruno topping several charts with ‘Locked Out Of Heaven’, his album is expected to move 140-160k copies in the first week which will put him in direct competition with Taylor Swift for the #1 spot. The Game meanwhile will not reach the three figure mark with projections pointing to 75-80k. Legendary Outkast member Big Boi on the other hand is expected to return a disappointing 25-30k.

UPDATE: The holiday season seems to have brought a surge in sales. The Game is now expected to move 85-90k which should land him at the 6th spot. Bruno Mars is expected to move 150-160k.

    […] Album Sales Projections For The Game, Bruno Mars & Big Boi 12/12/12 | By David Reyneke | No Comments Yesterday marked the release of three higher profile album, coming from the likes of the Game, Bruno Mars and Big Boi. While we don’t care much about Bruno Mars, apparently it isn’t half bad for what it is. His new LP called Unorthodox Jukebox is set to pull in a promising 150,000 copies. We are certainly more interested in Game and Big Boi, though, both of which look a bit dismal on paper. Jesus Piece is set to fall short of three figures with a mediocre 75,000 copies sold, while Daddy Fat Sax might not even break 30,000 with Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors. [via] […]
