With the overwhelming hype surrounding the release of Frank Ocean's album Blonde, it's really no surprise that Billboard are already projecting a No. 1 debut for the long-awaited LP. Industry forecasters are predicting that Blonde will move 225,000 to 250,000 equivalent album units in its debut week, which is impressive considering its Apple Music exclusivity. Ocean is set to finally knock the Suicide Squad Soundtrack and Drake's VIEWS from their No. 1 and No 2 positions. Frank's last album Channel Orange debuted and peaked at No. 2 back in 2012, shifting 131,000 copies in its first week. The insane anticipation surrounding Blonde has translated in some serious sales traction for the elusive artist. Check out the full report from Billboard here.
