Luke Bryan’s “Crash My Party” Predicted to Sell Almost Half a Million in the First Week

If so, Luke would have the third-best-selling debut week this year, behind Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z.

Luke Bryan’s new album, Crash My Party—released Tuesday (Aug. 13)—could sell as many as 450,000 copies in its debut week, Billboard predicts.

And if that happens, Luke would have the third best debut-week album sales of 2013 so far. Only Justin Timberlake (968,000 copies of The 20/20 Experience) and Jay Z (528,000 copies of Magna Carta . . . Holy Grail) have sold more.

It would also be the biggest sales week for a solo male country artist since November 2005, when Kenny Chesney sold 469,000 copies of The Road and the Radio.

Go, Luke, go! We’ll know for sure when the weekly sales figures come out Wednesday (Aug. 21). Read more about Luke and his new album in the Aug. 19 issue of Country Weekly, which is on stands now.
