Drake got some competition. Though his hit single “In My Feelings” has been on the Billboard Top 100 charts for now 5 consecutive weeks, its some new heat thats up next. Travis Scott has released his amusement park themed album entitled “ASTROWORLD” this past week and it is said to dethrone Drake’s “Scorpion” album.
The album has gained many positions on all streaming sites as well as continues to sell due to the “ASTROWORLD” merchandise that Scott sells on is website with many items actually sold out. Adding to the lit pit Scott also performed at this past Lollapalooza Chicago 2018. He brought out his bae Kylie Jenner and many of his supporters. If you’re not a fan of Travis Scott I’m sure you became one over the weekend.
According to Billboard if “ASTROWORLD” earns 450,000 units in its first week then it will score the third-biggest week of 2018 for an album. Drake’s “Scorpion” earned 732,000 units, according to Nielsen Music and Post Malone’s “beerbongs & bentleys” hit 461,000.
“ASTROWORLD” was released on Aug. 3 by Cactus Jack/Grand Hustle/Epic Records, and it is Scott’s first album since his 2016 album “Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight”. That album gained 88,000 units earned in its first week. So “ASTROWORLD” shouldn’t fall short.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums and streaming equivalent albums. There is no doubt that “ASTROWORLD” will be apart of that list. The expectations of this album is extremely high, since the promo for it has been live and has gotten nothing short of the best support. The top 10 of the Aug. 18-dated Billboard 200 chart is scheduled to be revealed on Billboard’s websites this Sunday, Aug. 12.
