NEW RELEASES: DAWN OF THE SEAN (UPDATED)
Streams will once again be the big driver on our SPS chart, as G.O.O.D./Def Jam's Big Sean looks like a lock for #1 there on Friday with his set I Decided. In fact, 50% of his final chart number may come from streaming services. This follows yesterday’s chart bow by Migos, for which streaming deserves 60% of the credit.
 
Big Sean (G.O.O.D./Def Jam) 120-130k SPS, 60-65k album
Reba McEntire (Rockin’ R/BMLG) 44-48k, 42-46k
Dear Evan Hansen ST (WMG) 28-32k, 23-27k
Kari Jobe (Sparrow) 16-19k, 14-17k
