NEW RELEASES: STILL A COLE WORLD

With only 12 songs and no physical product, J. Cole’s The Off-Season (Dreamville/Roc Nation/Interscope) will make a run for the biggest first week so far this year. The current champ is Taylor Swift’s Fearless (Taylor’s Version) (Republic) at 291k. Nicki Minaj’s repackaged Beam Me Up Scotty (Republic), lands with three new songs added to the 12-year-old mixtape.

Here’s what we know today:

J. Cole (Dreamville/Roc Nation/Interscope): 280-310k total activity; 35-40k albums
Nicki Minaj (Republic): 65-75k; 9-11k
Alan Jackson (EMI Nashville): 28-32k; 21-24k

One concern we have regarding the return to normal: Is it still okay to wear sweatpants every single day?
