To add to the good vibes, we now have an idea of where Slime Language will land on the Billboard 200. Though, sadly, Thugger's latest isn't projected to land at No. 1 on the next chart update, it is set to open strong with a final estimated haul somewhere between 44,000 and 49,000. Current projections, per Hits Daily Double, have as many as 5,000 of those attributed to pure album sales. That's strong enough to push Slime Language to No. 8, though Cole Swindell's projections are similar enough that Thugger could fairly easily take the No. 7 spot instead.
The new No. 1, as widely expected, will most certainly be Ariana Grande's Sweetener. The album is anticipated to close its inaugural week with as many as 220,000 units moved. That'll knock Travis Scott's two-time chart-topper ASTROWORLD to No. 2 ahead of recent releases from Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Post Malone.
The Slime Language compilation brings together Lil Uzi Vert, Gunna, Jacquees, Lil Duke, Tracy T, Lil Baby, and more across 15 tracks, the majority of which were produced by Wheezy. Uzi and Thugger actually have a purported 1500 songs in the vault, though it's unclear when or even if we'll be getting some more of those collabs anytime soon. "I'm always working on new music," Uzi told someone who was annoying him with a camera on the street back in May. "We have, like, 1500 songs together."
