New Rob Zombie album expected to sell 30K-35K copies first week


According to Hits Daily Double, Rob Zombie's new album, "The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser", is likely to sell between 30,000 and 35,000 copies in the United States in the first week of release. The SPS figure is expected to be between 34,000 and 39,000.

SPS, a practice used by Billboard magazine, stands for "sales plus streaming," which includes album sales and converted track sales plus converted streaming data.

For those interested: 10 tracks sold equal one album sale, since $1.29, the cost for an individual track, multiplied by ten gives you $12.99, a common price for an album, and 1,500 streams is equivalent to one album sale.
