Punk is set for charts glory.

The new album from Young Thug, who this weekend is bringing the Punk experience to the Saturday Night Live stage with Travis Barker, is—at least according to the latest projections from Hits Daily Double—currently on track to bag between 85,000 and 95,000 in total activity. Of that, between 2,000 and 5,000 is projected to be derived from pure sales.

A new reissue of The Beatles’ classic Let It Be, meanwhile, is set for between 60,000 and 70,000 in total activity. The reissue arrives a month ahead of the three-part unveiling of Peter Jackson’s Get Back docuseries on Disney+. Other new releases for the week—including Coldplay’s Music of the Spheres, as well as new albums from Kelly Clarkson and Zac Brown Band—will see their projections shared in the coming days.

Thug’s 20-song Punk, technically his second studio album, is a stacked affair that makes good on his previous promises of delivering a more introspective collection of songs. During a Hot 97 appearance on Friday, Thug was asked to pinpoint a few of his favorite Punk tracks. While “Road Rage” stands as Thug’s personal favorite lyrical moment on the album, “Stupid/Asking” and the Stick-Featuring “Drive Slow” are neck and neck when it comes to his favorites overall.

Prior to the Punk rollout, Thug linked up with Future and Drake for the latter’s Certified Lover Boy cut “Way 2 Sexy.” Revisit the official video for the Right Said Fred-interpolating single, directed by Dave Meyers, below.
