The next few months will see the release of a handful of hit albums, and early projections show that Kendrick Lamar and Harry Styles in particular are set to make huge debuts with their respective projects.
Hits Daily Double reports that Jack Harlow’s Go home, you miss the kids is expected to bring in an impressive 160,000 to 180,000 in its first week. Kendrick’s highly anticipated sequel to 2017 Slim, meanwhile, is currently expected to move between 350,000 and 400,000 units in its first week. The only album that should perform better is that of Harry Styles Harry’s houseat 400,000-450,000.
The latest numbers from Kendrick’s Mr. Morale and Big Steps are revised from a figure last week, which predicted the album would earn 350,000 equivalent units. His last album, Slim, recorded 603,000 first-week equivalent album units, including 353,000 from traditional album sales. Streaming is more or less the default way to listen to music these days, which explains the drop in its latest effort, especially considering that it has yet to announce physical editions of the disk.
Other notable first week numbers include Bad Bunny’s A Verano Sin Tiwhich is expected to debut at No. 2 with 125,000 to 150,000 units, with Harlow’s Go home, you miss the kids is expected to top the Billboard 200 chart. Post Malone’s next project, Twelve karat toothacheshould also cause a stir when it arrives on June 6 with 250,000 to 275,000.
