According to the latest data by Hits Daily Double, the 17-song set is on-course to land at #1 with the following numbers…
145,000-155,000 Sales Plus Streaming
[55,000-60,000 Pure Sales]
The figures are consistent with the rapper’s prior debuts.
It will be interesting to see whether he can best those efforts by continuing to sell in the long-term. Because, sans his joint LP with Drake, his previous albums tend to sell well initially but burn out fairly quickly.
