Singer/actor Tyrese is set for his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart. Industry forecasters suggest the entertainer’s new Black Rose effort -- released July 10 on his own Voltron Recordz (distributed through Universal Music) -- could earn 70,000 equivalent album units in the week ending July 16.
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 new Billboard 200 chart (dated Aug. 1) is scheduled to see its top 10 revealed on Billboard’s Web sites on July 18.
