NEWS - Whitney Houston's 'Just Whitney' On Track For Huge Opening Week
(12/12/02, 12 p.m. ET) -- Whitney Houston's new Arista Records album, Just Whitney, will be the Number One album on next week's Billboard 200 albums chart if it maintains its currently explosive sales pace.
The album, which came out Tuesday (December 10), sold more than 200,000 copies on its first day, breaking Houston's prior one-day sales record, according to the singer's official website (whitneyhouston.com). The previous record was set in 1995 when the soundtrack for Waiting To Exhale sold 177,284 units on its first day of release.
To put Houston's one-day sales feat into perspective, it took Mariah Carey's new MonarC/Island Records album, Charmbracelet, a full week to sell more than 241,000 copies.
