American rapper, Big Sean is heading for his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart. Industry sources project his new album Dark Sky Paradise to debut with 140,000 album equivalent units earned in the week ending March 1. That should be enough to enable the set, which was released on Feb. 24 through G.O.O.D./Def Jam Records, to bow atop the Billboard 200 chart.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new Billboard 200's top 10 will be revealed on Wednesday, March 4.

Dark Sky Paradise could sell over 110,000 in traditional album sales, which would easily mark the artist's biggest sales week yet. 2011's Finally Famous debuted and peaked at No. 3 with 87,000 copies sold in its first week, while 2013's Hall Of Fame launched with 72,000 (also debuting and peaking at No. 3).

After Big Sean, look for Kid Rock's First Kiss to start in the top five, while Chris Brown and Tyga's collaborative album Fan of a Fan should debut in the top 10 as well. The former could shift over 120,000 units, while the latter might move 60,000 or more.
