Meek Mill

Rapper Meek Mill is heading for his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart. Industry forecasters suggest his latest release, Dreams Worth More Than Money, could move over 200,000 equivalent album units in the week ending July 5. That should easily place the set atop the Billboard 200 chart when its top 10 is unveiled on Wednesday, July 10.

The album's latest single -- "All Eyes on You," featuring girlfriend Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown -- debuts at No. 81 on the Billboard Hot 100 dated July 11. The trio performed the song on Sunday's BET Awards.

Other albums set for high debuts on next week’s chart include Miguel’s Wildheart, X AmbassadorsVHS and August Burns Red’s Found in Far Away Places
