Atlanta’s DJ Drama and singer Miguel’s latest albums are reportedly en route to find a home on next week’s music sales chart based on one-day estimates.
If all goes accordingly, both entertainers should have no problems charting in the next seven days.
Grammy-nominated RCA R&B/hip hop hybrid Miguel’s sophomore album, Kaleidoscope Dream, the follow-up to his acclaimed debut, 2010’s All I Want Is You, should do between 55-60k. eOne hi-hop artist DJ Drama, T.I.‘s DJ, should do in the same 14-17k area for his latest, Quality Street Music.

Miguel’s new Kaleidoscope Dream features production courtesy of award-winning producer Jerry Wonda.
The 11-track set is packed with bedroom grooves including the 808-booming “Arch & Point” and the melodious, erotic “Use Me.” Miguel proves he’s a master of wordplay on “Do You …,” a mellow, hippie love ode produced by Jerry Wonda, where he croons “I’m gonna do you like drugs tonight.” He also flexes his alternative edge on “Don’t Look Back,” which samples the Zombies‘ “Time of the Season.” (Associated Press)
Drama heavily relies on a star-studded guest feature list including rhymes from Drake, Common and T.I.
Now, Drama returns with his fourth offering “Quality Street Music,” a 15-track album filled mostly with hard-thumping, high-energy street anthem songs. The album features a cast of rappers and singers that includes Drake, Common, Wiz Khalifa, T-Pain and Lloyd. Drama makes it all work with his uniquely assembled combination of artists meshed alongside solid production work. This is clear on the album’s singles, “My Moment” featuring 2 Chainz, Meek Mill and Jeremih, and “We In This B*tch” with Young Jeezy, T.I., Ludacris and Future. (Washington Post)
This week, the Atlanta deejay hit up SOHH to give readers five reasons to cop Quality Street Music.
“For the last x-amount of years, DJ Drama has been putting out some of the best and most classic mixtapes known to the mixtape game, and I think the culture and the fans–for all the free music I’ve given them–can lend me $10 for the purchase of the Quality album.” (SOHH 5 Reasons)
