It appears that Young Thug will have another charting project with the release of Slime Season 3. According to Hits Daily Double, the mixtape is projected to sell up to 30,000 album equivalent units. Not counting streams, the project is expected to sell between 22,000 and 25,000 units. Slime Season 3 will reportedly follow former One Direction member ZAYNE’s debut solo album and K. Michelle’s More Issues Than Vogue on Billboard’s Top 200 chart.
Besides being available at mixtape distributors DatPiff and Live Mixtapes, the Atlanta rapper made the project available for purchase on iTunes. At the time of publication, it was the No. 2 album on iTunes top-selling chart.
After Slime Season 3’s relese, Thugger was called out by a Reddit user who claimed that the cover art was stolen from his girlfriend’s Instagram account. Young Thug’s designer, Fano, said that the team was getting in contact with the artist and promised to compensate her for her work.
In February, Thugger’s I’m Up surprise mixtape debuted at #22 on the chart. It was available on the same platforms as Slime Season 3 and sold nearly 29,000 album equivalent units. The project was streamed on revenue-collecting services 7.6 million times.
