Weezy’s latest solo effort is expected to have one of the biggest streaming weeks of 2018.

Furthermore, the album could generate over 400 million on-demand audio streams for its songs in its first week in the U.S. That sum would garner the set the third-largest streaming week ever for an album, trailing only the debut frames of Drake’s Scorpion (745.9 million, according to Nielsen Music) and Post Malone’s Beerbongs & Bentleys (431.3 million) earlier in 2018.

Initial estimates have the album easily debuting atop the sales chart.

So here’s the deal: With limited info available, early reads give the returning Lil Wayne a smashing #1 debut with star-studded set Tha Carter V—the third-biggest bow of the year, behind Drake (732k) and Travis Scott (537k). Cher’s bubbling batch of ABBA covers makes a splash, driven by a strong ticket bundle.

Lil Wayne (Young Money) 475-525k total activity, 165-180k album
Cher (Warner Bros.) 160-180k, 155-175k
Logic (Def Jam) 90-110k, 45-55k (HITS Daily Double)

A few nights ago, Chicago’s Chance The Rapper geeked out over Wayne’s new album.

“I’m about to have my own private listening session to C5. I just gotta say, man, thank-you Lil Wayne ’cause beyond the fact you got me my first ever number one record, first ever Grammy, you taught me so much sh*t from far away. I just want to say thank-you for dropping that sh*t. Thank-you for reclaiming your sh*t and man, I’m ready to hear that sh*t yo. I had to kick everyone out the d*mn studio so I could really take this sh*t in.”
