According to HITS Daily Double, The Highlights is expected to move 77,000 equivalent album units with 7,000 in album sales to enter at No. 2. The 18-track project is billed as a “career-spanning project” rather than a “Greatest Hits” album, and is a compilation of The Weeknd’s best and favorite work. It dropped just before he pulled off his stunning Pepsi Super Bowl LV Halftime Performance for Super Bowl Sunday 2021.
Other possible new debuts on the chart include Foo Fighters‘ Medicine at Midnight and Pooh Shiesty‘s Shiesty Season at Nos. 3 and 4 respectively. The Dave Grohl-fronted band is looking to move 68,000 equivalent album units with a whopping 60,000 in album sales, while the Memphis rapper’s debut mixtape is projected to move 60,000 equivalent album units with 1,500 in album sales.
