"True To Self" and "Teenage Emotions" will compete on the charts this week.
Bryson Tiller's True To Self and Lil Yachty's Teenage Emotions were both released on Friday, and the sales projections for the respective albums are now in.
Tiller's True To Self, which was surprise-released a month ahead of its announced release date, is projected to move between 110,000 and 130,000 units, 40,000 to 50,000 of those being sold traditionally, according to Hits Daily Double. The singer's debut TRAPSOUL sold 22,000 units its first week in October 2015. However, the project would move into the top ten of the Billboard 200 in January 2016, earning 53,000 units in a week. The album was certified platinum last April.
Meanwhile, Lil Yachty's debut album Teenage Emotions is projected to move between 55,000 and 60,000 units, with 19,000 to 22,000 of those sold traditionally. While this is the Atlanta rapper's first proper LP, his previous mixtapes Lil Boat and Summer Songs 2 were released on iTunes and streaming services, respectively peaking at 106 and 197 on the Billboard 200.
Stay tuned for the official Billboard numbers to arrive later this week.
