Madonna’s Rebel Heart takes early lead in US Billboard albums chart race

The album sales race between Madonna’s “Rebel Heart,” the official “Empire” soundtrack and Luke Bryan’s “Spring Break…Checkin’ Out” will be a very tight one.

Based on opening day and pre-order sales data, Hits Daily Double forecasts that Madonna’s new “Rebel Heart” will debut with a pure sales figure in the 100-110,000 range.
The “Empire” soundtrack is set to follow with sales of roughly 90-100,000, while Luke Bryan’s latest spring break release looks safe for an 85-95,000 sales total.

Since projections at this point in the week come with a margin of error, it is far too early to decisively conclude that Madonna’s “Rebel Heart” will claim #1 on the Top Album Sales chart.

Potentially enough for #1, a 105,000 sales figure for Madonna’s “Rebel Heart” would represent a massive decline from that of predecessor “MDNA.” That album moved 359,000 during its inaugural March 2012 frame.
