Fear Inoculum could knock out Taylor Swift‘s album Lover off the top of the charts after just one week, and her fans who just heard about the TOOL for the first time are not thrilled.
Hits Daily Double reports that TOOL is expected to sell between 220-240,000 albums, with about 240-260,000 albums worth of total activity (meaning also counting streaming, where 1,000 streams are equivalent to one album sale.)
Swift could sell about 95-105,000 albums in week two with about 185-200,000 albums worth of total activity.
