So the album hits American stores Monday(!!!), what are everyones week 1 sales predictions? Obviously it will hit Number 1, what about raw numbers?
Ray of Light: 371,000
American Life: 241,000
Confessions on a Dance Floor: 350,000
Hard Candy: 280,000
This album is getting good reviews(Metacritic average of 77 so far, VERY good for a female pop album[EDIT:someone decided to give it a 4/10 so it's now down to 71]) and of course the Superbowl was huge for her, generating record iTunes preorders. Unfortunately she hasn't had a hit single(WHY wasn't Turn up the Radio the first single?!) and she has done zero visual promotion outside of the Superbowl and music videos so I'm going to say mid-high 300k's, maybe 350-380. I'm going to bet on 364,000.
Try and post ONE solid number so we can see who gets the closest!
