With his two new studio projects Endless and Blonde continuing to dominate the conversation, it looks like we now know how the projects will make their makes on the charts. As Pitchfork notes, Blonde will debut at No. 1 on the Billboard charts, with “industry forecasters” revealing a projection of around 275,000 “equivalent-album units” moved in its first week of release.
