PARTYNEXTDOOR made his return official with his new album, PARTYMOBILE. This is PARTY's first album in nearly four years and features star-studded appearances from acts like Rihanna and Drake. Although it's still early, the predictions for the project's first week numbers have been released.
According to Billboard, PARTY is expected to generate around 45,000 in total activity for the week ending on April 2. This places PARTYMOBILE on the heels of Dua Lipa's new album, Future Nostalgia, which is predicted to move over 50,000 units. But, the album will come in ahead of Joyner Lucas' ADHD as Lucas' album is projected to generate close to 30,000 in activity for the week.
Despite all of this, it looks like The Weeknd will claim the top spot on the Billboard 200 chart for the second week in a row. Billboard predicts that The Weeknd's After Hours will move over 100,000 album equivalent units. This will more than likely be enough to hold the album at the No. 1 spot for the second straight week. The album's second wind could be aided by the addition of three new songs to the deluxe version of After Hours. The tracks—"Nothing Compares," "Missed You" and "Final Lullaby"—appeared on streaming services on Monday and all versions of the album are combined together to help establish its chart position.
