One of the most high-profile releases from last week was Rae Sremmurd's long-awaited triple-disc album, SR3MM. Packaged alongside SwaeCation and Jxmtro, the group's album has received a mostly positive reaction from our audience, currently being rated at 78%. The rest of the web seems to be rocking with it as well and, although its 27-track length is much longer than most other albums, SR3MM has some strong highlights keeping the tracklist evenly divided. The album surprisingly is not overwhelming as each section is kept to nine tracks apiece and there's a fairly strong chance that the album will debut within the Billboard Hot 200's top five this week.
The project may have only released a few days ago but there are already first-week sales projections available predicting just how many copies the Sremm duo will sell. According to Hits Daily Double, SR3MM is expected to move between 55K and 60K equivalent album units during its first week on the market. The album is narrowly being edged out by Leon Bridges, who dropped Good Thing on the same day. Bridges is currently projected to be the top debut of last week, moving up to 62K albums.
While the number may not be as great as they wished, it is a notable improvement from Rae Sremmurd's last full-length project, which moved 30K in its first week. Nearly doubling their first-week sales, the group is beginning to resonate more with fans around the world and, in due time, they'll see their sales rise even further.
