Released last week through Def Jam, the Don’s fourth studio album is expected to debut in the No. 1 spot on the coveted chart with an estimated 120,000 equivalent album units.
His last three albums were also top 3 placements on the chart. 2011’s Finally Famous and 2013’s Hall of Fame both peaked at No. 3, while 2015’s Dark Sky Paradise gave the G.O.O.D. Music MC his first No. 1.
Last year, Sean made another appearance on the Billboard 200 as one half of TWENTY88. Along with his girlfriend Jhené Aiko, their eponymous debut opened at No. 5.
Boasting guest spots from Eminem (“No Favors”), Jhené (“Same Time, Pt. 1”), Jeremih (“Light”), The-Dream (“Sunday Morning Jetpack”), Migos (“Sacrifices”), and more, I Decided. also features singles like the gold-certified “Bounce Back,” “Moves,” and “Halfway Off the Balcony.”
Outside of the Sean news, projections also seem to indicate that Lady Gaga will get a major push following her show-stopping halftime performance at Super Bowl 51. Her latest album Joanne is expected to reach as high as No. 2 on the chart. It previously topped the Billboard 200 upon its release in October and was most recently in the No. 66 slot.
Official numbers won’t be released until Sunday (Feb. 12).
