With the likes of Beyonce, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Drake, Justin Bieber and more of a star-studded lineup that only he could assemble, it’s safe to say DJ Khaled came out swinging for his 10th album, ‘Grateful.’
Preceded by hits ‘Shining,’ the recently released ‘Wild Thoughts,’ and ‘I’m the One’ (Khaled’s first ever #1 single on the Hot 100), the set – delivered courtesy of Epic Records – has seen the famed DJ dominate radio, streaming, and hit many-a-top venue in its support since the turn of the year.
Now, just two days after its release, analysts are turning in reports to indicate whether its high profile guest list and ongoing promotion will be enough to grant the ‘Major Key’ star major first week numbers:
‘Grateful’ 1st week Predictions: 135-150k SPS, 40-50k pure sales
Predicted Chart Placement: #1
If the figures above ring true Khaled will not only garner the best premiere sales week of his career, but the project would also lay claim to his second consecutive chart-topper on the Billboard 200.
His first #1 on the tally came just last year with the Grammy-nominated ‘Major Key,’ which sold 96,000 equivalent album units its first week.
