Atlanta’s Summer Walker is the newcomer on everyone’s lips thanks to her debut studio album, ‘Over It.’
Having drummed up buzz aplenty thanks to her critically acclaimed 2018 mixtape, ‘Last Day of Summer,’ the singer-songwriter sent her growing legion of fans into a frenzy on October 4th when ‘Over’ officially hit digitally shelves. Flying to the top of iTunes sales tallies (as we reported here), the star-studded project – which features Usher, 6LACK, PartyNextDoor, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, Bryson Tiller, Jhene Aiko, and more – was initially projected to sell 75k-85k by the end of its inaugural sales tracking week (which would’ve resulted in a #3 debut on the Billboard 200).
Industry analysts have since recounted that tally, a feat that’s pushed Walker ahead of the race to the top of charts next week. Placing previous front runners Post Malone and Da Baby behind, look inside to see just how many units the 23-year-old is expected to shift by Friday (October 11):
Summer Walker’s ‘Over It’
Predicted First Week Sales (SPS): 115-125,000
Predicted First Week Sales (Pure): 11-15,000
Predicted First Week Placement: #1
If the prediction above rings true it will come as a major win for the genre, especially from the female front (which hasn’t been well represented on the Billboard 200’s upper rankings over the past year).
