The Def Jam emcee continues to redefine artistic success in 2017.

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.
