(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.
