Wednesday, Aug 8, 2012 10:26PM
Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross' God Forgives, I Don't solo album is expected to lose its top spot in its second week.
Based on one-day estimates, Ross' new LP will likely lose its number one spot.
The Now franchise just keeps tickin', despite--or perhaps because of--consumers' primary focus on singles. Now 43 (Capitol/EMI) will be next Tuesday's biggest debut by a mile, just as Rick Ross' album was this week), with early sales projecting a tally of 110-120k. That appears to be enough to knock Ross out of the top perch, given the typical second-week drop-off. (HITS Daily Double)
