Eminem’s “Kamikaze” is a safe bet to debut atop this week’s US album charts, but it is not the market’s only noteworthy new release.

Troye Sivan’s “Bloom” and Why Don’t We’s “8 Letters” both entered the market — and both are pacing for solid opening week totals.

According to Hits Daily Double, “Bloom” should sell 49-54K pure US copies this week. With units from track sales and streams included, it may generate 59-64K in total first-week consumption.

“8 Letters” is meanwhile trending for 34-37K in pure sales and 42-46K in total units.

Both are in contention for Top 5 positions on Billboard Top Album Sales. “Bloom” may also challenge for a Top 5 spot on the Billboard 200; “8 Letters” has a shot at the Top 10.
