Compton’s good kid is having a great sales week already. Kendrick Lamar’s debut good kid, m.A.A.d city just hit stores yesterday, but already chart pundits are predicting huge first-week numbers.

According to industry source HITS Daily Double, Kendrick is slated to push more than 200,000 copies of his debut, which would easily put him in the top 5 on the Billboard 200.

The critically-acclaimed album, which features the single “Swimming Pools (Drank)” and collaborations with Dr. Dre and Drake, holds the No. 2 spot on iTunes overall albums chart. Compare this to Kendrick’s indie effort Section.80, which peaked at No. 113 in 2011.

While K-Dot’s numbers are impressive, they’re no match for Taylor Swift. The country sweetheart’s album Red is on track to break 1 million copies in its opening week, possibly topping Lady Gaga’s 1.1 million-selling debut for Born This Way in May 2011.

Final numbers will be released Wednesday, October 31.
