Could we have a chart battle for #1 between #TheCarters (@Beyonce & @S_C_) and @5SOS? And what about @xxxtentacion, whose tragic death has mobilized a flood of fan activity? https://t.co/2HNJ3azofg pic.twitter.com/tC8BK37CZC— HITS Daily Double (@HITSDD) June 19, 2018
Per HDD's initial projections, The Carters and 5SOS are battling for the #1 spot on Billboard 200 Albums chart. Both are looking to posts 120K SPS. The Carters do seem to have the lead right now, but 5SOS's fanbase could pull ahead.
Also XXXTentacion death could be a wild card, as he sits at #1 on the iTunes songs chart, above The Carters' Apeshit, and both his albums are in the top 5 in the albums chart.
