Fetty Wap Set for No. 1 Debut on Billboard 200 Albums Chart
Fetty Wap’s self-titled debut album is on course for a No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 chart. Industry forecasters suggest the rapper’s set -- which was released Sept. 25 through RGF/300 Entertainment -- may move upwards of 110,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Oct. 2.
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 Oct. 17-dated Billboard 200 chart (where Fetty Wap will likely debut at No. 1) is scheduled to be revealed on Billboard’s Web sites on Sunday, Oct. 4.
Other albums aiming for a big start on the Billboard 200 include a trio of country albums from Don Henley (Cass County), George Strait (Cold Beer Conversation) and Thomas Rhett (Tangled Up). All three titles are heading for a start of around 75,000 units.
