But some are saying Alicia Keys could be giving her a run for her money with the release of “Girl On Fire,” according to Singersroom.
According to early figures, Alicia Keys is the projected winner in the race with sales of around 300,000 copies (week 11/27). This figure takes into account sales of the title track for the album, “Girl on Fire.”
In comparison, Rihanna’s “Unapologetic,” (11/19) pushed by the ever so clever “777 Tour,” which kicked off Wednesday (seven countries, seven concerts, in seven days), is slated to come in with 275,000 copies first week.
It is no secret that Rihanna is an artist that sells more singles than albums (#fact). To that end, “Diamonds” remains strong on the digital songs chart and is way ahead of the album’s projected first-week sales.
