J. Cole is well on his way to going platinum with no features once again. Projections are out for the Dreamville boss’ latest album, 4 Your Eyez Only, and the results are stellar.
According to HITS Daily Double, Jermaine’s new 10-track effort is on pace to sell between 550,000 and 575,000 units in its first week of availability. This would make it the year’s third-biggest debut, following Drake’s 1.04 million and Beyoncé’s 653,000.
These figures would give Cole the biggest opening week of his career, surpassing 2014’s 2014 Forest Hills Drive, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with a total of 371,000 copies (353,000 in traditional sales).
At press time, 4 Your Eyez Only is No. 1 on iTunes Top Albums chart, while three album tracks—“Deja Vu,” “Immortal,” and “Neighbors”—remain in the top 20 songs.
Elsewhere on the projections chart, Tech N9ne is expected to move 40,000-45,000 units with his latest album The Storm and Post Malone is on track to sell 30,000-35,000 with his debut Stoney.
Final numbers won’t be released until Sunday, Dec. 18.
