Plus: Ella Mai’s self-titled full-length debut set for high 10 debut.
Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born soundtrack will doubtless snare a second week atop the Billboard 200 chart, in response to trade forecasters. Meanwhile, Quavo’s debut solo set, Quavo Huncho, may zoom to No. 2 on the tally.
Prognosticators counsel A Star Is Born could earn round 125,000 equal album items within the week ending Oct. 18. That must be sufficient to maintain the set at No. 1, following its chart-topping debut on the Oct. 20-dated checklist with 231,000 items earned within the week ending Oct. four, in response to Nielsen Music.
If A Star Is Born -- Gaga’s fifth No. 1 album -- holds at No. 1, it'll give Lady Gaga her first chart-topper with multiple week at No. 1 since her first chief, Born This Way, topped the tally for 2 weeks in 2011.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the preferred albums of the week primarily based on multi-metric consumption, which incorporates conventional album gross sales, monitor equal albums (TEA) and streaming equal albums (SEA). The high 10 of the Oct. 27-dated Billboard 200 chart (the place A Star is Born could maintain at No. 1) is scheduled to be revealed on Billboard’s web sites on Sunday, Oct. 21.
Meanwhile, Quavo’s debut solo album Quavo Huncho, may vault from No. 66 to presumably No. 2 after its first full chart monitoring week. Sources estimate the Migos member’s album may earn round 100,000 items within the week ending Oct. 18.
Quavo Huncho bowed on the Oct. 20-dated chart at No. 66 with 11,000 items earned within the week ending Oct. 11 -- and solely from just a few hours of exercise on Oct. 11. The set was launched at 9 pm ET on Oct. 11 -- three hours earlier than Nielsen Music’s monitoring week ended. (Most albums are launched at 12 am ET every Friday. Nielsen Music’s gross sales and streaming monitoring week runs from Friday to Thursday.)
Elsewhere on subsequent week’s Billboard 200, look ahead to rising star Ella Mai to debut within the high 10 together with her debut full-length self-titled album. It could arrive with round 55,000 items earned. The set comprises her breakthrough smash single “Boo’d Up” (which peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100) and her new hit “Trip” (which rises 20-16 on essentially the most lately revealed Hot 100, dated Oct. 20).
