Kanye West’s long-awaited album Jesus Is King is looking to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, expected to garner a total of 225,000 to 275,000 units including 60,000 to 85,000 in traditional album sales. If the forecast is correct, JIK will mark West’s ninth No. 1 solo album, matching with Eminem for the most consecutive No. 1 albums and most debuts at No. 1 in-a-row.

Meanwhile, Gucci Mane’s 15th studio album Woptober II debuted at No. 9 in this week’s top 10 chart with 31,000 equivalent album units. Woptober II follows Delusions of Grandeur that peaked at No. 7 earlier this July.
