Per the site, Breezy’s ninth studio album, which was released Friday, is projected to move 110,000-135,000 equivalent album units its first week, of which 40,000 to 50,000 are calculated as pure album sales. That tally would be enough to give Brown a #1 Billboard 200 debut.
Official first-week sales numbers won’t be available until Monday, July 8.
If projections are correct, Indigo would be Brown’s third Billboard 200 number-one album, following 2011’s F.A.M.E. and 2012’s Fortune. It would also mark his 10th consecutive top-10 album, including the Tyga-assisted Fan of a Fan joint effort.
Brown’s previous album, Heartbreak on a Full Moon, debuted at #3 on the chart with 68,000 units in its first week.
Indigo is another double-disc LP consisting of 32 tracks, with appearances from Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Justin Bieber and Drake, the latter of whom guests on the smash hit “No Guidance.”
