Projections are in, and it looks like Yeezus is leading the June 18 release race.
Despite J. Cole’s public declaration that he hates album sales projections, the North Carolina rapper is actually projected to sell a very solid 270,000-290,000 copies.
Billboard has projected that Born Sinner may even sell a little over 300,000 copies based on rapid sales of J. Cole’s sophomore effort.
Kanye West’s polarizing sixth studio album, Yeezus, is expected to lead the pack with 360,000-380,000 copies.
While Yeezus’ first week debut will be lesser than his previous releases, Kanye is still expected to debut at number one.
Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller is slated to sell 100,000 copies of his sophomore effort Watching Movies With The Sound Off.
The final numbers won’t completely be calculated until next Wednesday, June 26.
Until then, good luck to all the artists and may the best man or woman win.
