After keeping fans on their toes, it should come as no surprise that Frank Ocean’s Blond album will reach number one on the Billboard charts.
Taking into consideration that, as of now, Frank’s album is available to stream exclusively via Apple Music, Billboard already projects that Frank will number one on the Top 200 charts:
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The top 10 of the new Sept. 10-dated Billboard 200 chart — where Blonde could debut at No. 1 — is scheduled to be revealed on Billboard’s websites on Sunday, Aug. 28. (Nielsen Music’s tracking week for sales and streams runs Friday through Thursday.)
Do you think Frank will break the records of Rihanna, Drake, and Beyonce?
