This weekend saw a slew of new releases, ranging from Burna Boy's Love, Damini, and the deluxe cut of Chris Brown's Breezy to Westside Gunn's 48-hour marathon, Peace "Fly" God, and August 08's Towards The Moon EP.
None of these, however, were as widely anticipated (or received) as Brent Faiyaz's Wasteland album.
Tyler, The Creator, Alicia Keys, Drake, The Neptunes, Joony, and Tre' Amani all appear on the 19-track project.
Now that fans have had a chance to listen and digest, favorites such as "GHETTO GATSBY" and "LOOSE CHANGE" have begun to emerge, and we've also received a look at the first week projected sales.

According to close sources, Wasteland will sell between 105 and 115K copies in its first week, making it a major frontrunner for the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart, though it will face stiff competition from Bad Bunny's Un Verano Sin Ti, which arrived in May and continues to do well into the summer.
Faiyaz worked with Anderson . Paak for "Inner Peace," Davido for "Nobody Has To Know," and seven other solo titles for his listeners to relish.
