Lil Durk is headed toward a huge milestone.

According to projections published by Hits Daily Double, the Chicago native is expected to top the Billboard 200 charts with 7220, his long-awaited studio album that arrived on Friday. The record is projected to move 120,000 to 130,000 album equivalent units within its first week, which will effectively end the Encanto soundtrack’s eight-week reign. 

If the forecasts are correct, 7220 will mark Durk’s first No. 1 solo album of his career. Its predecessor, 2020’s The Voice, debuted at No. 46 with just 23,000 units (Thursday sales number, not a full week), while his 2021 joint album, The Voice of the Heroes with Lil Baby, debuted at the top spot with 150,000 units.

Alamo/SME's Lil Durk will score his first #1 solo album this week, as 7220 is on pace to unseat Encanto's 8-week run atop the album chart. Durk's 7220 is projected to be in the 120-130k range. @HITSDD
