Zach Bryan’s new self-titled album will make a major splash this week, yielding the artist his first #1 on the Billboard 200.
According to Hits Daily Double, the buzzy release should close the August 25-31 tracking period with about 185K US units. Without physical editions yet available, album sales will make up a modest ~16K of that unit total. Most of the balance will come from the album’s stellar streaming activity.
Travis Scott’s “Utopia,” which has spent the past four weeks at #1 on the Billboard 200, will likely fall to #2 this week. Hits projects a unit total in the 97K range.
The album may, however, win for album sales — it is projected to move 35K copies. Fueled by a new vinyl round, Tyler, The Creator’s “Call Me If You Get Lost” will likely be the closest challenger on the sales front; Hits eyes 30K tracking period copies.
