Khaled could very well top the charts this week.
DJ Khaled's 10th studio album Grateful is projected to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 this week, according to a report from Hits Daily Double. According to the figures from HDD, the DJ's latest is expected to move between 135,000 to 150,000 units in its first week, with 40-50,000 of those units coming through in traditional sales. Part of the large streaming week can likely be attributed to the project's 23-track length.
Khaled's 2016 album Major Key moved 95,000 equivalent album units in its first week, with 59,000 sold traditionally. The project earned Khaled his first No. 1 album. Khaled will face competition from Imagine Dragons this week, who are projected to sell between 115,000 to 125,000 album equivalent units of their new album EVOLVE.
If the album does hit No. 1, it will be the first chart-topping release for Asahd Khaled, who serves as executive producer and also happens to be the DJ's 8-month-old son.
