Album could launch with third-biggest debut of 2016.
The Weeknd is bound for a No. 1 debut on next week’s Billboard 200 chart with his new album, Starboy, according to industry forecasters. Sources suggest the set could launch with at least 350,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Dec. 1. A start that large would give The Weeknd the third-biggest debut of 2016, behind only Drake’s Views (1.04 million units) and Beyoncé’s Lemonade (653,000).
