Plus: Polo G set to start at No. 2 with “The Goat” & Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit’s “Reunions” rushing towards top 15 after wide release.
Future is set for his seventh No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, as High Off Life should open in the top slot on next week’s chart, according to industry forecasters. Prognosticators suggest the new album, which was released on May 15 via Freebandz/Epic Records, could start with over 140,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending May 21. Perhaps about 85% of the album’s starting unit sum will be driven by streaming activity.
Future has previously hit No. 1 with Future HNDRXX Presents: The WIZRD (in 2019), HNDRXX, a self-titled album (both in 2017), Evol (2016), What a Time To Be Alive (with Drake) and DS2 (both in 2015).
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which comprises traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The top 10 of the May 30-dated Billboard 200 chart (where High Off Life may debut at No. 1) is scheduled to be revealed on Billboard’s website on Sunday, May 24.
