Predictions Are In: Jhené Aiko & Megan Thee Stallion’s Respective Projects Set To Sell…

Published: Monday 9th Mar 2020 by Rashad

The Billboard 200’s top 5 is set to see some serious girl power next week thanks to two of Urban music’s most highly anticipated sets – Jhené Aiko‘s third album, ‘Chilombo,’ and Megan Thee Stallion‘s, ‘Suga.’

The former, the first effort from Aiko since peaking at #5 with 2017’s ‘Trip,’ is already winning on the critical front as it’s nabbed thumbs up from some of the industry’s most respected critics.  A star-studded, 20-song affair featuring the likes of Nas, Big Sean, H.E.R., John Legend, Ab-Soul, Ty Dolla $ign, Future, Miguel, and more, analysts are reporting early reads of ‘Chilombo’s sales suggest the LP could deliver the highest Billboard 200 premiere of her career to date.

Conversely, ‘Suga’ – the newest EP from Stallion – may have a limited guest list (only Kehlani and rapper Gunna), but what it lacks in features it makes up in star power behind the board.  Boasting production credits from The Neptunes, Timbaland, Lil Ju, J-White, Helluva, Tommy Brown, and more, predictive data suggests ‘Suga’ could be the first Billboard top 5 entry of the Houston hottie’s career.

Curious to find out the numbers believed to accompany these releases?  See them inside:

 

Jhené Aiko’s ‘Chilombo’

First Week Sales Prediction (SPS):  95,000-120,000

First Week Sales Prediction (Pure): – 4,000-7,000
First Week Chart Prediction:  #3-#6
If the prediction above rings true, ‘Chilombo’ will come as the highest first week sales of Aiko’s career.  Moreover, the set’s commercial performance is putting it on track to match her personal best debut on the Billboard 200 (2014’s ‘Souled Out’ also bowed at #3).

Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘Suga’

First Week Sales Prediction (SPS):  35,000-40,000

First Week Sales Prediction (Pure):  3,000-5,000
First Week Chart Prediction:  #5-#9
If the prediction above rings true, ‘Suga’ will not only mark Stallion’s highest first week sales and debut position on the Billboard 200, but it will also mark her second time in the tally’s top 10.  She first visited that region of the charts last year when her mixtape, ‘Fever,’ debuted at #10.

    All that Meg hype n Jhené quietly came n stormed

    • C**-ila March 9, 2020

      But if you have time listen to them both please…
      Megan did what she’s does best, it’s hype and her vibe in my opinion it’s on point.
      Jhené on the other side has a incredible album, it’s strong and an awesome surprise!
      Both are great ??

    • TheUrbanGent March 9, 2020

      Well one is being pushed by a major label and the other Is not, so there’s that. Congrats to both, though.

  2. Paulo March 9, 2020

    Yaaaaaassss Jhené!!! So happy, she deserves all success. I’m yet to stream this but I got a night planned with me some wine and #CHILOMBO today

    Props to Megan too! Will give Suga a spin after I’m done with Jhene

      • Around the way filet March 9, 2020

        and don’t forget coronavirus

  4. only facts March 9, 2020

    Damn. I’d call this a comeback for Jhene seeing as this is selling MUCH more than the previous album (with that terrible cover art). And Meg, that’s solid for an EP/Mixtape. Congrats to both

    • Paulo March 9, 2020

      Trip is awesome intro to outro including the cover beau! Guess you gotta be a pothead like me and Jhené to appreciate the packaging lol

      • only facts March 9, 2020

        LOL. I love Jhene, but the last album didn’t do it for me. This one is much better 🙂

  5. Paulo March 9, 2020

    Smh @ the lack of proofreading on this article tho. Easy on the copy-paste yall Megan’s album is not named Chilombo.

    • Pu$$yPopstress March 9, 2020

      • Paulo March 9, 2020

        They clearly read what I said and corrrcted it. You’re welcome, ho!

  6. Nicky March 9, 2020

    Jhené slaughtered Camicky. Without Seniorita

    ??????????

    Camicky with 10x more budget than Jhené. Still was slaughtered.

    Hence Camicky was dropped from the label immediately after her Bromance release

    ????????????????

    • only facts March 9, 2020

      LOL. I forgot all about that girl and her album. But damn! Jhene did demolish Canola Cabullshit without a tour bundle, without streams for a #1 album, and without tons of promo. A kii!

      • Nicky March 9, 2020

        ??????

        Talent. No smoke and mirrors.

        Imagine if Seniorita wasn’t included on the album.

        ????????

        Poor Camicky. Another L in the books.

        Da Baby beat a woman on International Women’s Day. Poor Camicky.

      • Nicky likes White guys but they friend zone him March 9, 2020

        Awwwww. So sad nor-Man ly collaborator beat her on the charts on International Woman’s Day. Meg and Nicki Minaj slaying her alive. Even her nemesis Camila ended her career

        She really thought she had a hit

        ????????????????

        Another L for Normanly in 2018, 2019 and 2020

        Opening act and upcoming mixtape from RCA may be canceled as well. ?
        Pharrell Williams want profit from her not losses

      Jhené slaughtered Normani aka FlopManly Without Motivation and features from Ms. Sam Smith and Khalid.

      ??????????

      Normanli with 5x more budget and free publicity and free shoutouts from Twitter than Jhené. Still was slaughtered.

      Hence Normani was dropped from the RCA and Epic label immediately after her Motivation performance

      ????????????????

      • Jam March 9, 2020

        ummm.. I am confused. What does Normani have to do with anything???

  7. Erica March 9, 2020

    I think she’s going to sell more than that, they haven’t counted her bundle packages yet & each person who brought a concert ticket get the album. Her tour has sold out in every city so I know Jhené physical copy’s should be more than what is listed above so I’m hoping she gets the number 1 spot

    • Just Sayin’ March 9, 2020

      Unfortunatly she won’t. Lil Uzi going to debuet at #1.

  8. Clarks0o0ñ March 9, 2020

    See the clowns laughing at themselves
    As if machomani will sell 50k first week
    ????

    After all the free megan trending on twitter, u people didnt still stream her album.

    Typical black people, they will hype u up on Twitter but still allow u to flop.
    A perfect example is cùntmani.
    ???

    • Nicky March 9, 2020

      Considering it’s an EP and not an album campaign , it did fine ?????????????

      Poor Camicky only doubled Megan’s number with 80K SPS. Despite countless videos, singles, budget allocations, performances payola and playlists

      Imagine if Shawn’s seniorita wasn’t counted.

      ??????????????

      I cannot breathe. Camicky is NAWT a Star and will never be a main pop girl. Hence why she was dropped immediately after album release.

      ?????????????

    • only facts March 9, 2020

      You just dragged yourself. These black artists didn’t even have 1/8 of the promo Canola Cabullshit did and Jhene sold significantly more than her, and Meg sold almost what Canola Cabullshit did…with an EP. Sad. Very sad. And radio is beginning to pull “My Oh Flop” in light of DaBaby’s slapping incident. What a love and hip hop mess…L after L. She needs to rename the song “L oh L”

      • Nicky likes White guys but they friend zone him March 9, 2020

        ??????????
        Another L for Normani.

        She’s a flop and associate with flops. After all this free fake hype and shoutouts from Twitter. Sorry he’s not a star.

        Good luck with that song and upcoming mixtape/ EP from RCA if there’s anymore you speak of. Pharrell cannot gain profit from Normanly music.

        ??????????

        Poe Thang

      • Shayla Queen ? March 9, 2020

        Megan can call it an EP all day but 8 songs or more is an album and Suga has 9.

  9. Around the way filet March 9, 2020

    the way the internet hypes meg up , i expected higher numbers. label drama, promo and performances yet she still couldn’t crack a measley 50k. what happened hotties and barbz? yall forgot to support??

    • Dc March 9, 2020

      Exactly all that promo for so little numbers lol

  10. Nicky March 9, 2020

    Camickys label cut their losses bc of Bad PR and poor ROI. Hence Camicky apologized immediately after she was dropped despite her remarks years before

    Another L for Camicky.

    Now she is associated with a woman beater. Another L.

    So sorry Camicky 🙁 ????

    • TheTea March 9, 2020

      ?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    • Nicky likes White guys but they friend zone him March 9, 2020

      Normani label cut their losses bc of Bad PR and poor ROI. Hence Normani used the sympathy and race card immediately after she was dropped despite her racist remarks against Asians years before

      Another L for Normani, no hit singles in the chart since November 2019. Has to use Camila to be relevant.

      Now she is associated with flops. Another L.

      So NOT sorry Normanli ? ????

  11. Nicky March 9, 2020

    Congrats to Jhené for slaughtering Camicky with 1/10th the budget

    ????????????

    Hence Camicky was dropped. No label will fund a girl who doesn’t give good ROI

    Another L for Camicky ???????

    We love to see it

    • TheTea March 9, 2020

  13. stan March 9, 2020

    i tried listening to jhene’s album… it’s just like her previous albums and the songs sound same-y. i don’t get it.

  14. ummmm… yeah, no. March 9, 2020

    jhene snapped that was unexpected.

  15. RacismIsDead March 9, 2020

    Meg’s music is garbage.

  16. Charli Cheer Up March 10, 2020

    Awesome! Glad Jhene is back on track with #CHILOMBO. Felt like she got lost during Twenty88 and Trip but now she’s found her light again.
