Playboi Carti is on track to earn his first ever No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 with Whole Lotta Red.

According to HITS Daily Double, the Atlanta rapper’s sophomore studio effort is projected to open with a total of 125,000 to 135,000 album units. If forecasts are correct, Carti could overtake Taylor Swift’s evermore, which spent its second week atop the chart.

Whole Lotta Red finally dropped on Christmas Day after fans spent two years waiting. The 24-track project heard Carti team up with Kanye West, Kid Cudi and Future, as well as producers such as Pi’erre Bourne, Art Dealer, Outtatown, star boy, F1lthy, Juberlee, Richie Souf, Maaly Raw and Wheezy.

Elsewhere in music, take a listen to SZA’s brand new single “Good Days.”
