Metro Boomin could earn his first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart next week, as industry forecasters suggest his new guest-laden release, Not All Heroes Wear Capes, may debut atop the tally. Forecasters predict the set could launch with around 90,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Nov. 8. Most of that sum will be driven by streaming activity.
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 Nov. 17-dated Billboard 200 chart (where Capes could debut at No. 1) is scheduled to be revealed on Billboard’s websites on Sunday, Nov. 11.
