The new collab from "Fifty Shades Darker" should make a top 10 start, while launching as the week's top-selling song. A lack of both an official video & a presence on Spotify in its first week, however, will likely keep it from No. 1 upon its start.
Based on industry forecasts, "Forever" could sell between 175,000 and 200,000 downloads in its first week (ending Dec. 15; the song arrived at midnight on Dec. 9, so the tracking week covers its first seven days of availability). Such a sum should easily make "Forever" the best-selling song of the week.
The song is from Fifty Shades Darker, starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan. The film, the follow-up to 2015's Fifty Shades of Grey, hits theaters Feb. 10, the same day its soundtrack will be released.
