Linkin Park is aiming for its 10th top 10 album on the Billboard 200 chart with One More Light. Industry forecasters suggest the set -- which was released May 19 through Machine Shop/Warner Bros. Records -- may launch with around 90,000 equivalent album units in the week ending May 25. The album, which is Linkin Park’s seventh studio effort, will likely arrive in the No. 2 slot on the chart.
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 June 10-dated Billboard 200 chart (where Linkin Park will likely start at No. 2) is scheduled to be revealed on Billboard’s websites on Sunday, May 28.
