Lupe Projected to Top the Charts

Lupe Fiasco fans have mobilized once again.

After gaining thousands of signatures on a petition urging for the release of Fiasco’s long delayed album Lasers, it seems like Lupe’s fans may help him earn the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top 200 next week.

According to HitsDailyDouble, which projects album sales, the Chi-town spitter’s disc is expected to move about 220,000-240,000 units in its first week on shelves. If those numbers hold up, that will make Lasers the highest-selling debut of Lupe’s career; it will also be the second highest debut of 2011.

Meanwhile, Raekwon’s Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang, which also came out yesterday, is projected to sell 20,000-25,000 units.

Check back to on Wednesday, March 16 for the exact sales numbers.—Adam Fleischer
