TGT are projected to land below John Mayer and Luke Bryan, who will spend another week at No. 1.
Mayer's new Paradise Valley album is projected to sell around 150,000 copies by the end of the tracking week on Sunday, August 25. Bryan's set is likely to sell around 160,000 to 170,000 copies in its second week of release. Bryan debuted at No. 1 for the past week with 528,000 copies.
