Dababy Kirk Album First Week Sale Projections
The first week sale projections are in for DaBaby’s album, Kirk, and, as expected, they are quite impressive. DaBaby’s first project of 2019, Baby On Baby, dropped on March 1 and peaked with the 7th spot on Billboard on June 1. While DaBaby was still building a name for himself just a few months ago, the huge success of his single “Suge” sent Baby On Baby shooting up the charts. Now that DaBaby has entrenched himself in the hip hop landscape (and consequently the mainstream), Kirk won’t have to undergo this same climb. It’s starting at the top.
Charlotte rapper DaBaby’s new project is expected to move between 130-150k copies in the first week with about 7-9k out of those coming from pure sales, reports HDD. This puts him in competition for the number 1 spot on the Billboard 200 next week against Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding which is again set to do major numbers in its third week.
DaBaby’s album features the hit ‘Intro’ and guest appearances from Nicki Minaj, Migos, Gucci Mane, Chance The Rapper, Kevin Gates and more. These positions are of course subject to the performance of Kanye West’s new album Jesus is King if it does arrive on Sunday as promised. Kanye’s last album ye did more than 200k in the first week with only 7 songs so he definitely can’t be counted out of the race.
