Lil’ Nas X’s debut album, Montero, is expected to have a great week with his debut album. According to Hits Daily Double, the album is projected to move anywhere between 120,000 and 140,000 units during its first week. Complete with features from Megan Thee Stallion, Elton John and Doja Cat, the album will be in contention for the top spot on the Billboard 200 Chart.
If Montero does not top the charts, it will likely be because of Drake’s latest album, Certified Lover Boy. One week after its release, Certified Lover Boy secured the top spot with 613,000 units. One week later, Certified Lover Boy topped the charts yet again by moving approximately 220,000 units. In week three, Drake’s numbers will likely fall again, but will it be enough for Lil’ Nas X to sneak into the top spot? Only time will tell.
