We're only one day into the sales week, but we already have an idea of what the final numbers will be looking like. With Rick Ross, Kid Cudi, and G-Eazy going head-to-head, it was sure to be an interesting one, and looking at the estimations, it's should be a surprising turnout.
According to HDD, G-Eazy's When It's Dark Out will take the lead in rap sales this week, projected to sell 95-110k traditionally, and 115-130k with streams. Ross' Black Market follows with 50-55k (60-65k with streams), while Kid Cudi's Speedin' Bullet 2 Heaven trails at 17-20k (18-21k with streams).
With Cudder putting out an unapologetically experimental project, it was assumed he might take a dip in sales, but after selling 87,000 copies of his previous album, this is quite a setback. Meanwhile, Rozay has also lost some steam, as his Hood Billionaire album was able to move 74k last year.
Of course, these are just hypotheses, and things could certainly take a turn before next Friday. Check in next week for the final numbers.
