Nick Jonas is on course for his highest-charting solo album yet on the Billboard 200, according to industry forecasters. Sources suggest that his latest release, Last Year Was Complicated, could debut at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart dated July 2. That would secure Jonas his best ranking ever on the chart, following the No. 6 peak of his self-titled 2014 album, and the No. 3 plateau of his Who I Am album in 2010 (with The Administration).

Last Year Was Complicated -- which was released on June 10 via Safehouse/Island Records -- may earn over 60,000 equivalent album units in the week ending June 16, with over 40,000 of that sum in traditional album sales.

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 new July 2-dated Billboard 200 chart is scheduled to be revealed on Billboard’s websites on Sunday, June 19.

Jonas was of course also part of the sibling trio the Jonas Brothers, which snared five top 10 albums, with two of those hitting No. 1: A Little Bit Longer in 2008 and Lines, Vines and Trying Times in 2009.

'Hamilton' Cast Album Heading for Top 10 of Billboard 200 Chart After Tony Awards Triumph

As for the No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart dated July 2, Drake’s Views album will likely hold onto the top slot for a seventh consecutive week, with perhaps over 115,000 units.

Elsewhere in the new top 10, watch for the original Broadway cast recording of Hamilton to possibly surge into the top 10 for the first time after its 11 Tony Award wins on June 12. In addition, Jon Bellion’s The Human Condition may bow in the region with over 35,000 units.
