Looks like Rick Ross will have his prayers answered. His latest album, God Forgives, I Don’t is poised to dominate album sales.
Ross’ fifth release is on course to move an impressive 220,000 units, according to estimates from HitsDailyDouble, which will give him a fourth no. 1 album.
The tentative opening sales figures would represent a career high for the Miami rapper, whose chart-topping studio work, 2008’s Trilla, entered the Billboard 200 with 198,000 copies. Ross’ other no. 1’s include his 2006 debut, Port of Miami, and 2009’s Deeper Than Rap.
In recent weeks, Ross’ Def Jam labelmates have snagged big numbers. Last week, Nas’ Life Is Good topped the charts with 148K units sold. And prior to that, Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange hit No. 2 with 130K units moved in its first week.
