Before Pusha T released his second solo album, My Name Is My Name, the rapper proclaimed on social media to have the “hip-hop album of the year.” And now, it seems the Def Jam rapper may indeed be looking at the biggest sales week of his solo career.
According to industry forecasts, Push is on pace to sell between 75,000 to 80,000 copies of My Name Is My Name its first week in stores. The projections fall in line with recent first-week figures from his Def Jam label mates, including Big Sean‘s Hall of Fame, which sold 72,000 copies, and 2 Chainz‘s B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time, which moved 63,000 units.
For Pusha, the early sales estimates mark an impressive increase from his 2011 major label debut, Fear of God II: Let Us Pray, which debuted at number 66 on the Billboard 200 with 8,900 copies sold.
In other news, Pusha T recently issued the video for his Chris Brown-assisted song, “Sweet Serenade.”
