Logic isn't a regular on the radio and he has never had a solo top 20 hit—his highest-charting record was "Sucker for Pain," a collaborative single off Suicide Squad: The Album that peaked at No. 15 on the Billboard Hot 100—but the Def Jam emcee continues to redefine artistic success in 2017.
According to HDD, Logic's newly-released album, Everybody, is currently projected to move 225-240k SPS (sales plus streaming) equivalent album units in its first week, of which 155-165k are pure sales.
If initial projections hold, Everybody could very well debut at No. 1 next week, edging out country star Chris Stapleton whose From A Room: Volume 1 album is expected to move 185-200k equivalent album units. In 2015, Logic's sophomore album, The Incredible True Story, debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, selling 135k equivalent album units.
Logic's super impressive first-week numbers might come as a surprise to anyone who doesn't follow the Maryland native, but his track record speaks for itself. In January, we reported that on Spotify alone, Logic has surpassed the billion stream mark.
