Green Day is set for a top 10 debut on the Billboard 200 albums chart next week with their latest studio album, Father of All… Industry forecasters suggest the set, which was released Feb. 7 via Reprise/Warner, could launch with perhaps as much as 50,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Feb. 13. Most of that sum will be driven by album sales.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The top 10 of the Feb. 22-dated Billboard 200 chart (where Father of All… could debut in the top 10) is scheduled to be revealed on Billboard’s websites on Sunday, Feb. 16.

If Father of All… starts in the top 10, it will secure the rock band its 11th top 10 effort. The band last dropped a new studio album back in 2016 with Revolution Radio, which entered at No. 1.

Father of All… might be one of only two debuts in the top 10 next week, as the next highest new entry will likely come from Pop Smoke’s Meet the Woo 2. The latter set could bow with perhaps 28,000 to 32,000 units, nearly entirely from streaming activity.

As for what will be No. 1 on next week’s Billboard 200, it looks like Roddy Ricch’s Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial will return to the top for a fourth nonconsecutive week. It may earn around 80,000 units.
