Billboard reports thank u, next is headed to the top of the chart for its first week, which ends Feb. 23. The album could top the chart with 280,000 and 300,000 equivalent album units in its first week.

"The bow will likely set the one-week streaming record for an album by a woman, beating Cardi B's Invasion of Privacy," the publication reports. "That premiered at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 dated April 21, 2018, with 255,000 equivalent album units overall, with 135,000 of that total in SEA units, translating to 202.6 million streams of the tracks on the album during its debut frame."

The album would be Grande's fourth no. 1 on the chart, following the release of last year's Sweetner.
