Lil Baby's debut project Harder Than Ever got a big boost when he got Drake on the single "Yes, Indeed."
According to Hits Daily Double, the Quality Control rapper is projected to move 69-74k sales plus streaming in his first week, with about 6K of those in traditional album sales.
That should be a little better than what Playboi Carti's debut Die Lit did first-week last week, and what Rae Sremmurd's SR3MM did the week before.
It's also a lot better than what fellow Quality Control artists Migos and Lil Yachty did with their debut albums.
But it won't be good enough for number one. Post Malone's Beerbongs & Bentleys (121-126k projected) will fight K-Pop band BTS's Love Yourself: Tear for its fourth straight week at number 1.
