It looks like Drake‘s five-week chart-topping reign is coming to an end. According to projections by Hits Daily Double, Travis Scott‘s recent album ASTROWORLD will take its place on Billboard 200’s No. 1 spot. It is estimated that the studio LP will move around 300,000 to 400,000 copies in its first week with 45,000 to 65,000 coming from pure sales. If projections are indeed accurate, ASTROWORLD will be the Houston rapper’s biggest debut thus far. In contrast, his 2015 album Rodeo moved 90,940 copies its first week while 2016’s Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight did 88,000. See the projection and stream the album below if you haven’t gave it a listen yet.
