Future will be having a bigger sales week than previously reported.
Future’s hype seems to be at an all-time high, but while the initial first week sales projections for his new album, DS2, eclipsed those of his previous two albums, the number didn’t seem to match the buzz.
While internet hype is by no means a measure of an album’s performance on the charts, it looks like the numbers were actually lowballed. While HDD first reported that DS2 would move around 75k, they’ve now upped the prediction to 125-135k in sales, and 135-145 with streams.
This is quite a boost for Fewtch, who could possibly pull ahead of A$AP Rocky for the fourth biggest rap debut of 2015. He should land at number one without contest.
What do you think of the numbers? Are they more representative of where Future’s at right now?
