Rapper J. Cole's debut album, Cole World: The Sideline Story, is expected to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard album charts. Additionally, the album is projected to sell 240,000 to 250, 000 copies in its first week.
That will give Cole the biggest debut album since Nicki Minaj'sPink Friday last year.
It will also be the first solo album to debut at No. 1 since B.o.B. releasedThe Adventures of Bobby Ray last spring. Cole World... has garnered impressive sales despite the fact that it leaked to the Internet one week before its official release.
