That Rihanna reign just won’t let up. The pop superstar is set to make her biggest debut yet on the charts with her seventh album Unapologetic.
According to chart pundits HITS Daily Double, RiRi is on track to sell between 240-260k in her first week, which would most likely put her at No. 1 on next week’s Billboard 200. The numbers would also give her the largest first-week of her career, topping 2010’s Loud, which opened with 207k copies.
The album has spawned the chart-topping single “Diamonds” and collaborations with Eminem, Chris Brown, and Future.
Other new entries include Keyshia Cole, whose fifth album Woman to Woman is looking at 75-85k, while Pitbull’s Global Warming is approaching 35-40k.
