This week brought with it the release Future‘s seventh studio album ‘The WIZRD.’
With Q1 underway, the turn-up king is no doubt aiming to be first to make a splash and he looks set to deliver on his goal.
For, the 20-track set is on-course to top the upcoming issue of the Billboard 200.
According to Hits Daily Double, ‘The WIZRD’ will easily premiere at #1 on the tally with the following numbers:
120,000 – 130,000
[Sales Plus Streaming]
As a round figure, it’s not bad at all.
The pure sales clearly leave a lot to be desired, but they’re more indicative of contemporary consumption patterns than reflective of Future per se (see: streaming led market). Especially at a time when others are hitting the top selling less than 850 copies in pure sales.
