UPDATE (Dec. 6): We now have the final first week sales. Fabolous’ Summertime Shootout 3 moved 41k in the first week (5k pure) and will debut around the #8 mark on the Billboard 200. The Game’s Born 2 Rap did 23k (5k pure) which might give it a top 20 spot.
Previous story (Dec. 3):
One of the major albums that dropped during the Thanksgiving weekend was Fabolous’ Summertime Shootout 3 which had been delayed for almost a year.
Offering a total of 16 songs, Loso’s latest installment in the Summertime Shootout series featured the guests: Jeremih, Meek Mill, Lil Durk, Tory Lanez, YFN Lucci, Ty Dolla Sign, 2 Chainz, Gucci Mane, Chris Brown, Teyana Taylor, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, Roddy Ricch, PnB Rock and more.
As the tracking week continues, we have some idea about the first week sales projections today. SS3 is expected to move 30-35k copies in the first seven days with about 5-7k out of those coming from pure sales, reports HDD. This would hopefully give the veteran New York rapper a spot inside the top 10 of Billboard 200 this week. Stay tuned as we update the numbers throughout the week.
On Monday, Fab stopped by Charlie Sloth’s show on Apple Music to drop a “fire in the booth” freestyle.
The Game’s final LP Born 2 Rap was the other major release last week but looks like the first week numbers are projected to be below 20k at this point.
