Lady Gaga's sales projections for 'Joanne'

Lady Gaga's new album 'Joanne' is projected to sell 150-160K (125-135K pure sales) during the first week.

Gaga sold her album for $3 dollars on Amazon for it to sell just 125K. Under normal circumstances, this would have been good for an R&B artist but not a pop artist of Gaga's calibre. I can't imagine what the sales would have looked like for real if that deal wasn't put in place.
