BTS will unsurprisingly score a new #1 this week, as the group’s anthology release “Proof” will comfortably reign as America’s top-performing album.

According to Hits Daily Double, the album should generate 275-300K in total first week US units. Hits estimates that nearly 90% of the activity will come from traditional album sales, implying a figure in the 230-270K range.

Should the projections hold, “Proof” would debut with the year’s second-biggest sales total (after Harry Styles’ “Harry’s House” at 330K) and one of the top unit totals (after “Harry’s House” at over 521K, and in the same range as Kendrick Lamar’s “Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers,” 295K, and Bad Bunny’s “Un Verano Sin Ti,” 274K).
