Lil Wayne makes a huge comeback with his newest release, Tha Carter V. The LP is projected to debut No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart next week. Billboard reports that Tha Carter V forecasts to move over 450,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Oct. 4 in the U.S. — and has a shot at reaching a half-million units earned.

The album could generate over 400 million on-demand audio streams for its songs in its first week in the U.S., third-largest streaming week ever for an album this year, trailing only Drake’s Scorpion and Post Malone’s Beerbongs & Bentleys.

Tha Carter V was released on Sept. 28 via Young Money/Republic Records. Over the weekend, “Uproar” — a song off the LP — become a fan favorite and started a new social media challenge.

Dep’s “Special Delivery,” sparking fans to post clips onto social media of themselves Harlem Shaking, creating the #UproarChallenge.
