J. Cole’s ‘4 Your Eyez Only’ On Pace To Be The Third-Biggest Debut Of 2016

(AllHipHop News) Last week, The Weeknd’s Starboy earned the distinction of being the third biggest sales debut of 2016.

It appears the R&B singer is about to be passed.

HitsDailyDouble reports J. Cole’s fourth studio album 4 Your Eyez Only is set to surpass the first week sales of Starboy.

4YEO is on pace to open with 550,000 – 575,000 equivalent album units (400,000 – 425,000 traditional album sales).

Cole’s predicted first-week totals would only be behind Drake’s Views (1.04 million) and Beyoncé’s Lemonade (653,000) for the year.

This would also give the Dreamville leader his fourth #1 album.

Two years ago, 2014 Forest Hills Drive debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 with 371,000 units.
