Preliminary reports show that T.I.’s Paper Trail will be a sure bet for No. 1 on next week’s Billboard albums chart. According to early sales figures, the King of the South’s sixth studio album is on track to move 550,000 copies in its first week! If that’s not enough, “Whatever You Like” is still No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and his new single “Live Your Life” has already claimed the top spot on iTunes. T.I. will shoot the video for his collaboration with Rihanna this weekend in Los Angeles.
Jennifer Hudson’s self-titled debut album is expected to debut at No. 2 with a very respectable 215-225,000, while Robin Thicke’s third album Something Else is looking like it will sell 150,000 copies landing at No. 3.
