Yes “DAMN.” will be back on top.
After a two-week hiatus, Kendrick Lamar’s wildly successful album “DAMN.” is expected to top the Billboard 200 album chart once again next week, according to Hits Daily Double.
With 95,000-105,000 sales plus streaming album equivalents, of which 21,000-24,000 are physical and digital sales, Lamar looks more than likely to beat out the biggest competition, One More Light by Linkin Park, for the top spot.
A big reason for Kendrick making the jump back to No. 1 is the recent success of “LOVE.,” a track which could be the next single from the album. It’s already nearly as impactful on streaming platforms as “HUMBLE.” and “DNA.”
On May 6, the highly-acclaimed album debuted at No. 1 with massive first-week sales that exceeded 600,000. Logic’s Everybody bumped DAMN. to No. 3 on May 27, where it has remained behind last week’s top two, Harry Styles’ self-titled solo debut and Zac Brown Band’s Welcome Home.
