Frank Ocean's third studio album, Blond, appeared on iTunes and Apple Music on August 20, and the streaming numbers for the long-awaited project are already being tallied. According to Billboard, the album is on track to accrue between 225,000 and 250,000 equivalent album units in the week ending August 25. If these predictions hold, Blond would become Ocean's first-ever No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart.
Ocean's debut studio album, Channel Orange, sold 131,000 copies in its first week, premiering at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart. The chart rankings are expected to be released on August 28.
