UPDATE 2 (Oct. 27): The final numbers are in. The project lands at #2 with sales of 98,203 with 7,768 of those coming from pure sales.
Yachty debuts at #12 with 40,081 copies sold with 1,824 of those coming from pure sales.
UPDATE (Oct. 23): The sales projections have been updated and there are some slight changes. Future and Juice WRLD’s joint project is now projected to sell 90k–95k copies first week with 8k-9k of those coming from pure sales. Lil Yachty’s new effort is estimated to sell 37k–40k copies first week with about 8k-9k coming from pure sales.
Future and Juice WRLD surprised everyone when they announced that they will be releasing a joint album called WRLD on Drugs. The album features the likes of Nicki Minaj, Young Thug, Lil Wayne, and more.
The project is getting a mixed reaction from fans but with the nature of the concerned artists, we were expecting it do well on streaming. HDD projects that the album is expected to move approximately 100k copies in the first week with 7-10k out of that coming from pure sales. This will be enough to give good competition to Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born album/soundtrack (which is in its third week) for the number 1 spot on Billboard 200 next week.
Lil Yachty’s new album Nuthin 2 Prove is projected to earn 35-40k units (1-2k pure sales) while Khalid’s new EP Suncity is on course to do 40-45k units (9-12k pure sales). As usual, check back later for regular updates on the albums’ performance.
