Scott's album has been projected to move approximately 450,000 album equivalent units, which would likely be enough to dethrone Drake's five week reign atop the charts. Astroworld has reportedly done well on the streaming end, while also bundling albums alongside Astroworld merchandise.

If the numbers hold up, Astroworld will have the third highest first week sales figures behind Drake's Scorpion which topped at 732,000 total sales, and Post Malone's beerbongs & bentleys which hit 461,000.
