J Cole’s debut album, Cole World: The Sideline Story, is expected to impact the Billboard Top 200 in a major way come next week.
According to the industry insiders at hitsdailydouble.com—who have already tabulated the one-day sales figures—the Roc Nation signee is projected to sell around 225,000 to 250,000 CDs in his first-week, which, if true, will easily secure the 2010 XXL Freshman the No. 1 spot on the charts.
Stay tuned to XXLMag.com next Wednesday, October 5 for the official Nielsen SoundScan sales figures. —Elan Mancini
