Fabolous Projected To Sell 100K in First Week

Looks like Fabolous is on track to getting his very first no. 1 album.

Industry insiders at have tabulated their one-day sales numbers and project the rapper’s new disc, Loso’s Way, to sell between 95,000 and 100,000 in its first week.

If the estimates are correct, this will be Fab’s first no. 1 album on The Billboard 200. 2007’s From Nothin’ to Something, the Brooklyn rapper’s debut on Def Jam, came close but only peaked at no. 2 with 159,000 units sold.

Fab recently graced the cover of XXL’s first annual Hip-Hop Soul Issue along with “Throw it in the Bag” partner The-Dream. Loso’s Way boasts several rap-and-b songs, including collaborations with Ne-Yo, Ryan Leslie, Jeremih, Trey Songz, Keri Hilson and Marsha Ambrosius. The album, loosely based on the 1993 gangster flick Carlito’s Way, has production by The Alchemist, Jermaine Dupri and The J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League.

The official Nielsen SoundScan statistics will be released next Wednesday (August 5). –Elan Mancini
