Lil Uzi Vert is headed toward another No. 1 album.
According to Hits Daily Double, the Philadelphia rapper's Eternal Atake is projected to move between 275,000 and 325,000 album equivalent units in its first week—5,000 to 8,000 of which come from traditional album sales. Uzi's last project, 2017's Luv Is Rage 2, also debut at the top of the charts with 135,000 equivalent units, of which 28,000 were pure album sales.
Eternal Atake, which experienced a number of delays since it was announced in 2018, delivered 18 tracks, including the previously released "Futsal Shuffle 2020" and "That Way." Uzi has also told fans that the album will receive a deluxe version, which could arrive sometime within the next week.
Uzi also sent out a series of tweets to various artists—such as Chief Keef, Lil Baby, Young Thug, Future, and A Boogie wit da Hoodie—suggesting they would appear on the deluxe version.
If Eternal Atake ends up receiving all this extra star power, it could very well occupy the top spot for weeks to come.
HDD also reports Jhené Aiko's Chilombo is expected to debut at the No. 2 spot with 95,000 to 120,000 (4,000-7,000 in traditional album sales); while Megan Thee Stallion's Suga project is on track take the No. 4 spot with 35,000 to 40,000 (3,000 to 5,000) units in its first week.
K-pop group NCT 127 bested Meg with their Neo Zone album, which is expected to move 70,000 to 80,000 units.
