Expected to sell over 220,000 pure first week US copies and generate over 265,000 in weekly consumption units, Frank Ocean’s “Blonde” will easily rank as the week’s top debut — and top album, period.

It is not, however, the week’s only notable new release.

Hits Daily Double projects that Lindsey Stirling’s “Brave Enough” and Tory Lanez’ “I Told You” will also debut within the Top 5 on Top Album Sales and the Billboard 200.

“Brave Enough” is expected to sell 41-45,000 pure US Copies, while Lanez’ album is pacing to move 35-38,000. The “Brave Enough” figure should be enough for #2 on the Top Album Sales chart. “I Told You” will contend with “Suicide Squad: The Album” (~34-37,000 pure sales) for #3.

The inclusion of TEA (track sales/10) and SEA (track streams/1500) should yield 54-59,000 total consumption units for “I Told You” and 44-48,000 for “Brave Enough.”

Assuming those figures hold, the two albums should respectively debut at #4 and #5 on the Billboard 200. Only “Blonde,” “Suicide Squad: The Album” (~74-79,000) and Drake’s “Views” (~73-78,000) are expected to generate more weekly consumption.
