Although there are reports that her project only sold 460 physical copies, Rihanna is still on pace to score her second number-one album on the Billboard 200 chart with ANTI.
Billboard reports industry forecasters have suggested Rih Rih’s set could earn approximately 175,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending February 4. Of that figure, Rihanna could potentially move 130,000 in pure album sales.
If the estimates prove to be accurate, the feat would mark the second chart-topper for Rihanna; her previous album, 2012’s Unapologetic, debuted atop the list with 238,000 albums sold in its first week.
Elsewhere, Kevin Gates’ Islah is projected to open with 100,000 units.
