Post Malone’s ‘Hollywood’s Bleeding’ Aims For No. 1 on Billboard 200 Albums Chart | Billboard News


Things are looking good for Post Malone! The rapper is headed for his second No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, as industry forecasters predict his latest release, ‘Hollywood’s Bleeding,’ which dropped on September 6th, will launch with 475,000 to 500,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending September 12th. If Post’s follow up to 2018’s ‘beerbongs & bentleys’ starts as expected, it’ll score the second-largest week for any album this year, following only Taylor Swift’s ‘Lover,’ which launched with 867,000 units in the week ending September 5th, according to Nielsen Music. And it doesn’t stop there. ‘Hollywood’s Bleeding’ might also notch the largest streaming week of 2019, as it could generate 375 million on-demand audio streams for its tracks in the week ending September 12th. Nielsen Music reports, currently, the largest streaming week this year belongs to Ariana Grande’s ‘Thank U, Next,’ which collected 307 million on-demand audio streams in its debut week. Other albums on course for significant debuts on next week’s Billboard 200 include: Melanie Martinez’s ‘K-12,’ The Highwomen’s self-titled album, Lindsey Stirling’s ‘Artemis’ and Earthgang’s ‘Mirrorland.’ The top 10 of the September 21st-dated Billboard 200 chart (where ‘Hollywood’s Bleeding’ could debut at No. 1) is scheduled to be revealed this Sunday, so keep it locked on Billboard.com. And until next time, for Billboard News, it’s your girl Jordyn Rolling.
