It seems as though after Super Tuesday's music releases, Rick Ross' sophomore album, Trilla-- the follow-up to his 2006 debut, Port of Miami-- is projected to enter the charts next week at No. 1.
According to industry insiders at Hits Daily Double, based on one-day sales reports from retailers, the Florida rapper's disc is set to have between 165,000 - 175,000 in first-week sales.
Ross' success can be attributed to the long list of producers and artists featured on the album. Behind the boards, J.R. Rotem, Mannie Fresh, The Runners and the J.U.S.T.I.C.E League all contributed to Mr. MIA-O's set. While Ross enlisted his A-list friends like Jay-Z, Lil'Wayne, DJ Khaled, Nelly and Young Jeezy for support.
