We should’ve known from the chart success of ‘Humble,’ the first official single from Kendrick Lamar‘s new album, ‘Damn,’ how highly anticipated the set was. However, industry analysts are predicting the set’s first week sales will exceed even what we foresaw.
Available as of Thursday night [April 13], the project – Lamar’s fourth – immediately shot to #1 on iTunes digital charts and similarly took over Spotify streaming charts. In fact, the reception to ‘Damn’ is so heavy industry analysts are predicting it will make K.Dot the second artist in history to garner over 200 million streams in one week with one album.
With 50 million of those streams earned in just one day, are you curious to see where it’s predicted to land when pure sales are factored in? Find out inside:
Predicted 1st Week Sales: 465-485,000
Predicted Chart Placement: #1
If the prediction above rings true Lamar will clock the year’s second biggest debut. Only Drake’s “playlist album,” ‘More Life,’ scored higher when it debuted at #1 to the tune of 505,000 units moved. Click here to read more on that.
