Kendrick’s surprise album is projected to come out on top, opening with sales of 140,000 to 150,000 copies. It’s a considerable dip initial sales of last year’s To Pimp a Butterfly, which moved 324,000 units in its first week.
For Wayne and Chainz, their fist collaborative album, Collegrove, is expected to sell between 35,000 and 45,000 albums.
