XXXTentacion’s ‘Skins’ Album Set to Hit No. 1 on Billboard 200
It seems as though XXXTentacion's posthumous album, Skins, will spend one of the last weeks of 2018 at the top of the Billboard 200 chart.
On Tuesday (Dec. 12), Hits Daily Double reports that the 10-track LP, which only features Kanye West, has an estimated 150,000 to160,000 streaming equivalent album sales with 50,000 to 55,000 of that sum consisting of pure album sales. The album is expected to surpass Meek Mill's Championships album second week on the chart, with 84,000 to 89,000 in SEA, and 4,000 to 6,000 in album sales. X's posthumous project is also expected to out-sell Gucci Mane's Evil Genius, which will hit the chart with 54,000 to 59,000 SEA and 5,000 to 7,000 pure album sales.
The amazing news about the late 2017 XXL Freshman's album comes shortly after the full tracklist for the Spider-Man: Into The SpiderVerse soundtrack leaked, which revealed that the Florida rapper will appear on a song with Lil Wayne and Ty Dolla $ign. After Weezy performed his collaboration with the slain rapper in Miami for the first time, he first broke the news about the soundtrack on Twitter by previewing his song "Scared Of The Dark" featuring Ty "and a surprise guest!"
"My song 'Scared Of The Dark' with @tydollasign (and a surprise special guest!) is on the Spider-Man: Into The @SpiderVerse Soundtrack. Pre-save it here & enter to win 2 tickets to see the movie," Wayne wrote on Twitter.
Hours later, a photo of the back of the soundtrack surfaced online with XXXTentacion's name clearly listed next to Ty Dolla $ign and the "Don't Cry" rapper.
Congratulations to XXXTentacion's family and the EMPIRE team.
