He’s about to dominate.

As far as sales go, yea Cole is about to let the choppa sing on the charts. HDD is projecting Cole’s fourth album is going to do around 550-575K units sold in it’s first week upon release and take the number one spot. This will see him top his previous album 2014 Forest Hills Drive which opened with 371K in it’s first week.

Cole is also on track to topple his UMG label mate The Weeknd and if he does he will have have the third biggest opening of 2016, trailing only Drake’s Views (1.04 million) and Beyonce’s Lemonade (643,000.)

In other chart news, Tech N9ne’s The Storm is set to do 40-45K and Post Malone’s Stoney is projected for 30-35K. Although, there are no HDD projections for Ab-Soul’s Do What Thou Wilt, which probably means it didn’t have a very good opening as far as sales go, despite strong reviews and being deemed better than Cole’s album by fans.
