Solange heading for No. 2 with "A Seat at the Table."
Bon Iver is heading for its first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart with 22, A Million. According to industry forecasters, the set could open atop the list with perhaps 65,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Oct. 6. The album was released on Sept. 30 through Jagjaguwar Records on CD, vinyl LP, digital download, cassette; and through streaming services.
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 Oct. 22-dated Billboard 200 chart -- where Bon Iver may bow at No. 1 -- is scheduled to be revealed on Billboard’s websites on Sunday, Oct. 9.
