Lil Wayne Vs Justin Timberlake For No. 1

Lil Wayne's new album "I Am Not a Human Being II," is expected to be the biggest new release of the week but sales of the album may not be strong enough to dethrone Justin Timberlake from the No. 1 spot on the Billboard album chart.

Wayne's new album is now to be on track to sell between 190,000 and 210,000, industry sources have estimated to Billboard. If those numbers hold true Wayne should have the highest debut on the chart next week, but he is only expected to come in at No. 2.

Billboard says their sources indicate that Wayne's projected sales numbers will likely not be enough to outsell Justin Timberlake's current No. 1 album "The 20/20 Experience" which debuted this past week with sales of 968,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The projections also indicate that Wayne's sales will be way down from his previous album. That album, "Tha Carter V," debuted at No. 1 after selling 964,000 copies its first week in stores in 2011.
