Almost Healed might be one of the most anticipated hip-hop projects of the year, and it looks like it'll be one of its most successful, as well. Moreover, reports broke that Lil Durk is expected to sell about 150K units first week with his latest album. Not only that, but it seems like the album is dominating the Apple Music and YouTube charts, as well. On the former, he currently holds the top spot on their albums charts, right in front of Taylor Swift's Midnights deluxe edition. Still, publications project that The Voice will debut at number two, as Swift is expected to push around 300K units in the release's first week.

Also, Lil Durk is all over Apple Music's top songs chart, including previous singles and new collaborations and solo efforts. On the other hand, the video for "Therapy Session" and "Pelle Coat" with Alicia Keys sat at the top of the YouTube trending videos charts for music. All in all, it looks like this will be quite the momentous occasion for the Chicago MC. Given the deep topics and focused tracklist that he offers on Almost Healed, such accolades and success are fitting and heartening to see from his audience.

In addition, Smurk went on a prolific press run as of late and graced fans with a lot of standout moments and revelations. In fact, one of the most comical and curious stems from his explanation of a viral meme that features him and Young Thug looking at a computer. While speaking to DJ Akademiks on the Off The Record podcast, he explained that he has a pact with Thugger to never reveal what they were looking at. "He told me not to tell nobody. That’s how you know we won’t snitch on each other," Lil Durk shared.

Smurk Aims For 150K

Meanwhile, Almost Healed is sure to have at least one major highlight for you no matter where your rap taste leans. Fans of more emotive and somber rap, plus people from Chicago, likely appreciate his Juice WRLD collab "Cross The Globe" a lot, for example. Who knows, maybe it'll catch even more steam in the next week and pull some even more insane numbers. If he sells 150K, it would his best-ever week so far regarding numbers. Regardless, stay posted on HNHH for the latest news and updates on Lil Durk.
