Justin Timberlake’s new album, Man of the Woods, is on course for a No. 1 debut on next week’s Billboard 200 chart, according to industry forecasters.
Prognosticators suggest the pop star’s latest effort, which was released on Feb. 2 through RCA Records, could launch atop the chart with around 300,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Feb. 8. If Man of the Woods starts in the penthouse, it will secure Timberlake his fourth straight No. 1 album.
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 Feb. 17, 2018-dated Billboard 200 chart (where Man of the Woods will probably debut at No. 1) is scheduled to be revealed on Billboard’s websites on Sunday, Feb. 11.
