NAV Set for Second No. 1 Album on Billboard 200 Chart With ‘Good Intentions’
Kehlani aiming for No. 2 bow with “It Was Good Until It Wasn’t,” while Lil Durk and Bad Bunny are also heading for high debuts.
NAV is on course for his second No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, according to industry forecasters. Prognosticators suggest that the rapper-singer’s latest release, Good Intentions, could earn over 110,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending May 14.
NAV’s new album was released on May 8 via XO/Republic Records, and follows 2019’s Bad Habits, which became his first No. 1 on the chart. It launched with 82,000 units earned in its first week, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
Good Intentions’ first week is largely powered by streaming activity for the set’s songs, as well as merchandise/album bundle sales. NAV’s webstore is selling 100 different merch/album bundles available associated with the Good Intentions album. In addition, there are 18 physical format/digital album offerings (six CDs, six vinyl LPs and six cassettes).
Good Intentions was initially forecasted to earn over 80,000 units in its first week, but its sturdy merch/album bundle sales shot that forecast north of 110,000.
