This week both Kanye and J Cole released albums. According to HITS Daily Double, Kanye’s Yeezus is on track to outsell Cole’s Born Sinner with 375-400k, while Cole is predicted to move 290-315k units based on one-day estimates.
This is BIG news for Kanye. If the numbers hold up, it would give Kanye the second biggest debut of the year behind Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience (968k) and Cole the fourth largest debut after Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories (339k).
Kelly Rowland is facing off with her male counterparts with her fourth album Talk a Good Game, which is expected to sell 60-65k copies in its first week. Her previous set, 2011’s Here I Am, entered at No. 3 with 77,000.
