Keyshia Cole‘s A Different Me is expected to debut at No. 2 on Billboard’s Top 200 with over 324,000 copies sold, while releases from artists like Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em are likely to have low debuts.
According to Hits Daily Double, Keyshia’s new project will miss the top spot on the charts by nearly 6,000 as country star Taylor Swift‘s Fearless is expected to sell 330,000 units. Atop all hip-hop and R&B releases, Cole’s third solo release is the follow-up to her platinum-selling Just Like You album which also debuted at No. 2 in 2007.
Trailing behind Cole is Jamie Foxx‘s Intuition at No. 3 which is on track to sell around 262,000 albums. The follow-up to his 2005 multi-platinum selling project Unpredictable, the Academy Award winning artist’s new disc features appearances by T.I., Lil’ Wayne, Kanye West and more.
While additional estimates are still being analyzed and have yet to be announced, Anthony Hamilton‘s Point of it All is slated to debut at No. 12 while Southern rapper Plies‘ Da REAList should secure the No. 16 spot.
Despite his “Platinum In One Week” campaign and exploding onto the scene last year as a multi-platinum rap star, Soulja Boy Tell ‘em‘s iSouljaBoyTellem is expected to get off to a shaky start debuting at No. 46.
