Top Dawg Entertainment artist Ab-Soul should easily find himself on the sales chart next week with projections for his These Days... up to 17,000 copies.
Early estimates have the new solo release selling at least 15,000 copies in its first seven days.
YOUR NEW RELEASES: X marks the spot... Although these numbers are still relatively tentative, it's pretty damn clear that Ed Sheeran's x will bow at #1 next week. Ed Sheeran (Atlantic) 180-200k G-Eazy (Blueprint/G-Eazy) 40-45k Phish (ATO) 25-30k Mastodon (Warner Bros.) 25-30k Ab Soul (TDE) 15-17k (HITS Daily Double)
Digital retailer Amazon provided a preview of Ab's new album earlier this month.
If you haven't been marking your calendars, we're just ten days away from the release of Ab-Soul's highly-anticipated albumThese Days... (6/24)! Yesterday we got to hear the title track and take a look at the official tracklisting. Now, thanks to Amazon, we're blessed with snippets of each track. I know there are many fans (including myself) that don't like to ruin the first impression, but let's face it... there are even more people out there that eat this type of thing up. (2 Dope Boyz)

Ab recently detailed how much thought went into the album title.
"Originally, I didn't want a super conceptual title. I didn't want to freak anybody out. A lot of people do like that concept-driven perspective and that's cool, but I just wanted to loosen up a bit. I wanted to make the overall concept broader. I wanted it to be like a time capsule to represent where I've been between my last project and this one." (Life + Times)
