It looks like ScHoolboy Q’s CrasH Talk is set to disrupt the charts. According to Hits Daily Double, the rapper’s fifth studio album is anticipated to debut on the top five of the Billboard 200, garnering around 80 to 85,000 units with 15 to 18,000 pure album sales. Expected to join him are P!nk with Hurts 2B Human, worship band Hillsong United, Billie Eilish’s WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? and Khalid’s Free Spirit. Meanwhile, Beyoncé’s live album Homecoming, Ariana Grande, BTS‘ Map of the Soul: Persona, the late Nipsey Hussle’s Victory Lap and newcomers AJR are hinted to take over the second half.
Q dropped CrasH Talk on April 26 and is his first album in three years. The West Coast icon initially planned to release it in 2017 but was hit numerous delays, including the untimely passing of his friends Mac Miller and Nipsey Hussle. With over 50 tracks recorded for the project, he also revealed that he had scrapped a number of the album’s versions because “they were trash.”
