(AllHipHop News) More Life, the new “playlist” from Drake, opened at #1 on the Billboard 200 album chart with 505,000 equivalent album units.
HitsDailyDouble predicts the project will spend a second week in the top spot.
Drake is expected to collect another 240,000 – 250,000 sales plus streaming units.
That range is likely enough to keep More Life in the pole position on the SPS charts.
On the traditional album sales side, Drizzy’s latest body of work is looking to sell between 45,000 – 50,000 units in week two.
The Toronto native is in a close race with Metallica, Ed Sheeran, Trey Songz, and the Beauty and the Beast soundtrack for #1 on the Top Album Sales chart.
Other Hip Hop albums looking to remain in the Top 20 on the Billboard 200 this week include Rick Ross’ Rather You Than Me (39 – 43K), Future’s FUTURE (36 – 40K), Migos’ Culture (34 – 38K), Post Malone’s Stoney (24 -27K), and Future’s HNDRXX (23 – 26K).
