Tyler, The Creator's IGOR has cemented him as a superstar.

Per Chart Data, IGOR is set to go No. 1, potentially moving upwards of 170 thousand units.

If these predictions hold, Tyler will have the highest first week SPS (sales plus streams) of any hip-hop album this year, besting Juice WRLD's Death Race for Love (165k) and Future's The WIZRD (125k).
