Just a day after the Georgia rappers delivered the Drip Harder mixtape, Hits Daily Double first week sales projections for the collaborative project dropped. And, as most fans expected, the figures are pretty respectable.
The 13-track effort is projected to move between 115,000 and 125,000 equivalent album units within its debut week; 5,000 to 7,000 of which will be traditional album sales. Though the forecast could change within the upcoming days, Drip Harder is expected to trail Twenty One Pilot’s new album Trench and the official soundtrack for A Star Is Born; the projects are predicted to move 155,000 to 175,000, and 140,000 to 160,000, respectively.
Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for any updates.
Drip Harder includes big-time features from artists like Drake, Young Thug, and NAV, as well as production from Wheezy, Tay Keith, Frank Dukes, and Turbo. The latter beatmaker recently spoke to Complex about his day-one involvement with the tape.
“I executive produced the album. From the time that they started even talking about it—before it was known to the public—I was there through the whole process,” he said. “We were thinking about names and coming up with all types of things. That was maybe September of last year. Since I’ve worked with both of them on their separate projects, it just made sense. Like, ‘Yeah, Turbo should executive produce this because he knows our sound.’ It got to the point where they didn’t even want to put out music unless I touched it or unless I heard it—especially with Gunna.”
