Lil Nas X's debut project 7 is expected to debut at the top of the Billboard 200 chart. The project is reportedly projected to do 70,000 units within its first week, tying it with Billie Eilish's album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?

Powered by the strength of his viral hit "Old Town Road", 7 features collaborators like Billie Ray Cyrus, who appears on the song's official remix, Cardi B and Travis Barker as well as production from Dot Da Genius, Ryan Tedder and Boi-1da.

Unsurprisingly, the bulk of his sales will likely be attributed to streaming, with only between 4000 and 7000 units likely to reflect pure sales.
