Fall Out Boy is flying toward its third No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 with American Beauty/American Psycho. Industry sources suggest the set will arrive with over 220,000 in equivalent album units in the week ending Jan. 25.
The top 10 of the new Billboard 200 chart will be revealed on Wednesday, Jan. 28.
Traditional album sales could comprise over 190,000 copies of the album’s first-week units, which would tally the band’s best frame week since 2007. That year, Infinity on High notched the act its first No. 1 album, bowing with 260,000 sold, according to Nielsen Music. The quartet visited the top of the chart again in 2013 with Save Rock and Roll, which started with 154,000.
American Beauty/American Psycho could also tally the biggest sales week for a rock album since last November, when Foo Fighters’ Sonic Highways drove in with 190,000.
Other albums aiming for a high entry on the Billboard 200 next week include Joey Bada$$‘ B4.DA.$$, Marilyn Manson‘s The Pale Emperor and The Decemberists‘ What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World.
