P!nk is on course for the biggest debut of 2017 by a woman on next week’s Billboard 200 albums chart, according to industry forecasters. Those in the know suggest her new album, Beautiful Trauma, will launch at No. 1 on the chart with over 300,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Oct. 19. That sizable sum would secure P!nk her second No. 1 album and the biggest week of 2017 for an album by a woman.
Beautiful Trauma was released on Oct. 13 through RCA Records. It’s P!nk’s seventh studio album and follows 2012’s chart-topping The Truth About Love.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The top 10 of the new Nov. 4-dated Billboard 200 chart (where P!nk will likely debut at No. 1) is scheduled to be revealed on Billboard’s websites on Sunday, Oct. 22.
