In the sales projections, the singer is expected to push up to 130,000 total units and the red-braided rapper will sell as many as 60,000 equivalent album units, according to Hits Daily Double.
Tiller’s debut project, Trapsoul, peaked at #8 on the Billboard 200 after entering at #11 with 22,000 unites of sales. It sat at #76 last week as fans awaited True to Self. Three songs off Trapsoul charted on the Hot 100 with “Don’t” being the highest entry reaching #13.
Meanwhile, Lil Yachty has had two entries on the Billboard 200 with his Lil Boat mixtape appearing at the #106 slot while Summer Songs 2 cracked the list at #197. His platinum single “1 Night” reached the #49 spot on the Hot 100 chart.
Both new projects will compete against the continued success of Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. and Drake’s More Life.
