Five Finger Death Punch & Travi$ Scott set for debuts in the top five.

After scoring the second-biggest debut for an album in 2015 -- and his first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart -- The Weeknd is heading for a second week atop the tally.

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. 

Other albums on track for significant debuts in the top 10 include: Iron Maiden's The Book of Souls (around 65,000 units) and Troye Sivan's Wild (45,000).
