IS LEGENDARY

Juice WRLD's Legends Never Die (Grade A/Interscope) will open with the largest first week of the year and will become one of the biggest ever posthumous debuts during the modern chart era. The album is currently tracking into fourth place on that list behind Notorious B.I.G.'s Life After Death (690k), 2Pac's R U Still Down (548k), and Biggie's Born Again (485k). Will a last-minute push see Legends creep over Born Again and into third place? Can Legends hit 500k? Watch this space.

BTS' Map of the Soul: 7 ~ The Journey (UMe) dropped today. The midweek digital-only release is the act's fourth Japanese-language studio album. Their previous Japanese-language release, Face Yourself, opened with 12k in 2018. Will the band's rise in popularity since then result in a much higher debut?
