According to Billboard, Schoolboy Q’s major label debut Oxymoron is predicted to sell between 150,000 to 160,000 copies opening week. Those totals would be enough to make the project the best-selling album in the country.
Neither of Q’s two previous albums, Setbacks and Habits & Contradictions, were able to break past the 100 spot on the chart. With his latest effort being released through Top Dawg/Interscope and coming on the heels of fellow Black Hippy member Kendrick Lamar’s platinum selling good kid, m.A.A.d. city, Schoolboy managed to reach a much larger audience with Oxymoron.
Another Hip Hop artist is most likely going to enter at number 2 on the 200. Kid Cudi’s surprise album Satellite Flight is predicted to sell around 90,000 units. Cudi did not announce the date the LP would be released until hours before it hit iTunes.
