The first-week sales estimates for Wiz Khalifa’s sophomore album, O.N.I.F.C, which hit stores yesterday Tuesday, December 4th, are in.
According to HitsDailyDouble, the Taylor Gang boss is expected to sell 135-145k copies in the first sales week.
If the sales projections hold true, the Pittsburgh rappers’ first week sales figures will fall short compared to his debut album, Rolling Papers that was bought 197k times in the first week back in 2011, and debuted at #2 on the charts.
Although O.N.I.F.C’s sales are estimated to be lower than Rolling Papers that debuted #2, Wiz will have a shot at topping the charts as he will battle it out with Rod Stewart’s Merry Christmas, Baby and Taylor Swift’s RED for the #1 spot.
Stay tuned to Def Sounds for the official first week sales numbers when they are revealed next week.
