The Weeknd Aiming for Second Week at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Albums Chart
Five Finger Death Punch & Travi$ Scott set for debuts in the top five.
Industry forecasters suggest the singer's Beauty Behind the Madness album could hold at No. 1, and shift over 130,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Sept. 10. It bowed at No. 1 with 412,000 units earned in the week ending Sept. 3, according to Nielsen Music.
Rock band Five Finger Death Punch is flirting with a possible No. 1 debut with its new album Got Your Six, which may launch with around 125,000 units. It would mark their first chart-topper. The group has seen its last four albums all debut in the top 10, with their last two sets (The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, Vols. 1 and 2) both debut and peak at No. 2.
Rapper Travi$ Scott is also aiming high, with his debut studio album, Rodeo. The set may bow in the No. 3 slot with perhaps 90,000 units.
