Country singer Brett Eldredge is aiming for his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart next week with his new self-titled album, according to industry forecasters. Sources suggest the set -- which was released through Atlantic Records on Aug. 4 -- could launch with around 45,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Aug. 10.
Possibly stopping Eldredge from a No. 1 bow could be a return engagement atop the chart by Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. The set could head back to the No. 1 slot for a fourth week overall, possibly earning around 40,000 to 45,000 units.
