Looks like they probably will!
Jay-Z and Kanye West's Watch the Throne (above) is set to sell between 400,000 to 500,000 copies in its first US week in release, even though it's only being sold at Best Buy and on iTunes!
If all goes according to plan, their album will make this the second largest sales week of the year, following GaGa's 1.1 million opening week for Born This Way.
Given the fact that a physical release of Throne doesn't actually come out till Friday, a #1 spot for the album's first week would be particularly impressive, because it would be based on four days of iTunes-only sales.
Should be exciting to see what the numbers end up looking like. Who knows, maybe Eric Church will maintain his #1 spot on the Billboard 200 in another ultra-surprising move! Ha!
picked up downloaded a copy of Watch the Throne? Do U think it will become #1 on the charts?
