As we approach the end of the May 17-23 tracking period, Tyler, The Creator’s new release looks set for a #1 debut in the United States.

According to Hits Daily Double, “IGOR” is expected to close the week with 65-85K in pure US sales. The inclusion of units from track sales and streams should yield a consumption figure in the 150-175K range.

Based on current tracking, the figures should allow “IGOR” to debut at #1 for both pure sales and consumption. The next-best sales performer will likely be The National’s “I Am Easy To Find” (~40-45K). DJ Khaled’s new “Father Of Asahd” should take second for consumption with about ~115-130K.

“IGOR” will be Tyler, The Creator’s first #1 album in the US. His previous release “Flower Boy” started at #2 for sales and consumption.
