DONDA, the newest release from Kanye West, could be his best-selling album in almost decade.

According to HITS Daily Double, the 27-track record is projected to earn at least 300,000 equivalent album units in its first week, greatly surpassing Jesus Is King‘s 264,000 units, Ye‘s 208,000 units and The Life of Pablo‘s 94,000 units; Yeezus raked in 327,000 units in its first week.

DONDA’s numbers also outpace the likes of Halsey’s 95,000 to 115,000 units and Lil Tecca’s 30,000 to 35,000. If forecasts are correct and the record debuts at No. 1, West could set a new record for the most No. 1 albums this century.
