Not even the combined powers of Beyonce, Jay Z, Big Sean, John Legend, Cardi B, Meek Mill, and more could help DJ Khaled‘s latest album – ‘Father of Asahd’ – outpace Tyler the Creator‘s new project, ‘IGOR.’
According to industry analysts, Khaled – despite an aggressive promo schedule that’s not only seen him tackle radio, print, and TV but also seen him drop multiple music videos in his latest LP’s support – will bow at #2 on next week’s refreshed Billboard 200 with approximately 115k-130k sold (25k-35k pure sales).
Look inside to see just how many Tyler’s on track to move:
Tyler the Creator’s ‘IGOR’
Predicted first week sales (SPS): 150k-175k
Predicted first week sales (Pure): 65-85k
If the prediction proves true ‘IGOR’ will be Tyler’s first #1 on the Billboard 200. His last effort, 2017’s ‘Flower Boy,’ bowed at #2 with 106k SPS its first week.
