Rick Ross may dethrone Eminem from his top spot on The Billboard 200 sales charts next week. At least according to hitsdailydouble.com.
The industry insiders tabulated the first day sales of The Miami Boss’s fourth solo set, Teflon Don, and it seems as if Rozay is on track to sell around 170,000 to 180,000 units in his first week on shelves. If that number is correct, not only will the Def Jam rapper score his fourth consecutive No. 1 album on the charts, but he might have a shot at bumping Marshall Mathers from the No. 1 seat.
As of press time there are no projections available for Em’s numbers, but as reported earlier today, Recovery sold 195,000 units over the course of the last week.
