The first week sales projection has been revealed for Frank Ocean’s major label debut Channel Orange.
According to HDD, the Odd Future crooner is projected to sell between 110,000 and 125,000 copies in its first week, based on digital downloads alone. Ocean unexpectedly released the LP to iTunes exclusively late Monday night, with plans to ship to physical retail on July 17th.
Ahead of the album’s release, Ocean released a letter during the early hours of the morning on July 4th revealing that he has been in a relationship with a man. The Hip Hop community has showed its support since, with artists including Trina, Busta Rhymes and Beyonce praising the singer for his courage.
