(AllHipHop News) Last week saw the arrival of three projects from popular rap stars. Hits Daily Double has crunched the numbers, and the predictions for the first week sales of Future’s EVOL, Wiz Khalifa’s Khalifa, and Young Thug’s I’m Up have been calculated.
According to HDD, Future is closing in on the #1 spot on the album chart. The Atlanta native’s latest effort is expected to sell between 110,000 – 115,000 copies with a total of around 150,000 units with streaming numbers added in. If that prediction holds up, EVOL will be Future’s third #1 album in less than a year (DS2, What A Time to Be Alive with Drake).
Wiz is looking to come in with 45,000 – 50,000 (55,000 – 60,000 SPS) copies for his self-titled album. That’s a drop from 2014’s Blacc Hollywood which opened with 90,000 copies. His highest first sales week to date came in 2011 when Rolling Papers sold 197,000 copies.
The first week sales for Young Thug’s I’m Up EP are likely to be slightly less than the first week sales for his Barter 6 in 2015. B6 sold 17,000 copies and his latest project is expected to sell between 14,000 – 16,000 (17,000 -20,000 SPS).
