The new collaborative album is expected to challenge for No. 1 on the Billboard 200 next week.
The first-week sales projections for Travis Scott and Quavo's long-teased collaborative project Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho are in. According to a report from Hits Daily Double, the album is expected to move 95,000 to 120,000 equivalent album units first week, with 16,000 to 19,000 of that total coming through in pure sales. While Taylor Swift's Reputation is expected to do big numbers for Christmas, Huncho Jack does have a shot at No. 1 next week, according to the report.
Earlier this year, Quavo's group Migos earned their first No. 1 album with Culture, which moved 131,000 equivalent album units. In 2016, Travis Scott also earned his first No. 1 with Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight, which bowed with 88,000 equivalent album units.
This is the second collaborative project of 2017 that involves a member of Migos. Without Warning was a project presented by the team of Offset, 21 Savage, and Metro Boomin, released October 31st. It moved 53,000 album equivalent units in its first partial week (it dropped on a Tuesday), and actually saw an increase in sales in its second (and first complete) week, moving 56,000 equivalent album units.
Quavo spoke to Zane Lowe about the project a few weeks back. "Me and this Travis record going to be the biggest collab album that you heard for the 2017 and 2018," he said. The album features production from Vinylz, Murda Beatz, Buddha Bless, Southside, Cardo, and TM88. Stream it here.
