Controversial US rapper XXXTentacion’s second album ? is predicted to be the highest debut in this week’s ARIA-album charts.
As Pitchfork reports, XXXTentacion, real name Jahseh Onfroy, was charged last October with multiple felony assault charges to which he pled not guilty. Onfroy was put under house arrest in December, pending a further trial this month.
The Florida musician’s LP is expected to crack the top five on the album charts but will have a hard time knocking Ed Sheeran from the top spot as the UK star continues his mammoth Australian stadium tour.
Other album debuts include Stone Temple Pilots’ self-titled LP which is set to enter the top 30 and Luke Combs’ This One’s For You will slip in the top 40.
Over on the singles chart, Lil Dicky will debut in the top 30 with his track Freaky Friday, while Bad Wolves' Zombie and Noah Kahan & Julia Michaels' Hurt Somebody are both expected to enter in the top 50.
