Rap newcomer Mac Miller‘s Blue Slide Park is in store for a huge opening week with estimates reaching nearly 200,000 in just its first seven days on retail outlet shelves.
Based on one-day estimates, Miller’s new LP will easily debut atop the sales chart.
That’s right, just like we said last week, Rostrum Records rapper Mac Miller’s Blue Slide Park, distributed digitally by INgrooves and physically by Fontana, will debut at #1 smack dab in the middle of Q4, with estimates of between 175-185k, which might even be conservative. This is a triumph of social networking and good, new-fashioned viral marketing, as Malcolm McCormick, the son of a Christian architect father and Jewish mother photographer, transforms his combined 2.7 millionTwitter, Facebook and MySpace followers into an impressive debut.

As his debut continues to sell off store shelves, Miller is currently gearing up for a promo tour.
Staying true to a tradition of supporting up-and-coming artists and life being different on the mountain, Mountain Dew announces a new partnership with the one and only Mac Miller. With his hotly anticipated debut Blue Slide Parkout today, Mountain Dew is pleased to present Mac’s first headlining US tour, which will feature 35 shows in 32 cities this Fall.
