Texas hip-hop artist Post Malone, Janelle Monae and Youngboy Never Broke Again are set for big opening weeks. The trio are expected to easily land on the Billboard 200 chart.

Based on early estimates, Malone’s new Beerbongs & Bentleys LP will lead the way atop its competition.

Post Malone (Republic) 440-460k total activity, 155-165k album
Keith Urban (Capitol Nashville) 135-145k, 125-135k
Janelle Monae (Atlantic) 37-42k, 30-35k
Godsmack (BMG) 33-38k, 32-37k
Youngboy Never Broke Again (Atlantic) 30-35k, 7-9k
Willie Nelson (Legacy) 22-25k, 21-24k (HITS Daily Double)

In its opening day, Malone’s new album crushed a huge Spotify streaming record.

Malone’s new project reportedly stacked up huge numbers on the Apple Music chart.

Tracks from beerbongs occupy nine of the Top 10 spots at Apple Music, meanwhile, and 16 of Top 20. For those of you who remember that old-timey transaction known as a “sale,” you’ll get a nostalgic kick out of hearing that the album is #1 at iTunes (and #18 with the clean version), and that three of its tracks are in the Top 10 at the download emporium.

In mid-April, Malone shared his album’s star-studded tracklisting.
