Lil Wayne’s ‘I Am Not a Human Being II’ to Debut High on Billboard 200 Chart
Lil Wayne might thwart Justin Timberlake‘s reign over the Billboard 200 chart next week. The Young Money leader’s ‘I Am Not a Human Being II’ LP is on target to debut at No. 2, reports Billboard. However, that’s only an early prediction.
According to industry sources, Weezy’s album could sell between 190,000 to 210,000 copies by the end of the week. It’s unlikely that these numbers can compare to Timberlake’s album sales, though, as ‘The 20/20 Experience’ premiered at No. 1 this week with 968,000 copies sold.
But anything can happen. Wayne’s album might see a sales spurt over the weekend. However, sources believe that JT’s reign at the top will remain unchallenged.
Tunechi’s last album, ‘Tha Carter V,’ debuted at No. 1 with 964,000 units sold in 2011. So, it looks like ‘IANAHB 2′ will be 700,000 copies shy of that historic number.
In the meantime, fans can catch Wayne on tour this summer with his massive America’s Most Wanted Music Festival. The trek kicks off July 9 in Birmingham, Ala., and wraps up in Irvine, Calif., on Sept. 1.
