The new album from Young Thug, who is bringing the Punk experience to the Saturday Night Live stage this weekend with Travis Barker, is currently on track to gross between 85,000 and 95,000 units, according to the most recent Hits Daily Double projections.
Pure sales are expected to generate between 2,000 and 5,000 of those. Meanwhile, a new reissue of The Beatles’ classic Let It Be is expected to generate between 60,000 and 70,000 units in total activity. The reissue arrives a month before Peter Jackson’s three-part Get Back docuseries premieres on Disney+.
Other new releases for the week, such as Coldplay’s Music of the Spheres and new albums from Kelly Clarkson and Zac Brown Band, will have their projections revealed in the coming days.
Thug’s 20-song Punk, his second studio album, is a jam-packed affair that delivers on his previous promises of delivering a more introspective collection of songs. Thug was asked to name a few of his favourite Punk songs during a Hot 97 appearance on Friday.
While “Road Rage” is Thug’s personal favourite lyrical moment on the album, “Stupid/Asking” and the Stick-featured “Drive Slow” are neck and neck in terms of his overall favourites. Prior to the release of Punk, Thug collaborated with Future and Drake on the latter’s Certified Lover Boy track “Way 2 Sexy.” Dave Meyers directed the official video for the Right Said Fred-interpolating single, which you can watch below.
