Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ‘This Unruly Mess I’ve Made’ 1st Week Sales Projections

Mackelmore & Ryan Lewis released their second album this week, and the 1st week sales projections for This Unruly Mess I’ve Made were released today. The album is set to move 45-55k copies – 50-60k with streams – 1st week. The numbers are a bit of a step down from their first album The Heist (78k 1st week), which eventually went on to sell 1.5 million copies in the US. It is important to remember that the duo are an independent entity with major label distribution, and without a big hit to their name, these numbers feel about right.
