Based on weekend estimates, the LP should sell at least 300,000 copies in its first week.

Kendrick Lamar will top next week’s albums and SPS charts with the year’s second-largest debut, behind only Drake. This will be the 10th album this year to debut over 100k. By this time last year, only four albums had hit six figures. Here’s how it looks in Sales Plus Streaming (SPS) and albums as we head into the weekend:

*Kendrick Lamar (TDE/Aftermath/Interscope) 340-365k SPS (300-325k albums)
Empire ST (Twentieth Century Fox/Columbia) 80-85k SPS (60-65k albums) (HITS Daily Double)

G.O.O.D. Music head Kanye West, Pusha T and rap veteran Bun B took to their Twitter pages to applaud K. Dot’s newest solo offering this week.

Various musicians boasted about K. Dot’s new LP on Twitter Monday (March 16).
