's '' is the predicted top seller next week on Billboard Hot 200 chart. Nielsen SoundScan's Building Chart that was released yesterday (November 7) reported that 179,000 copies have been sold on the first day.

His number is followed by 's '' (107,000), this week's chart reigner ' '' (89,000) and ' '' (61,000).

Should Jay-Z claimed the #1 spot when the final data is released on Wednesday (November 13), he will make a tie to the late for having 10 albums peaking at the top position. In fact, Jay-Z's first day number is the third largest figure in the last three months.

Further down the line, other predicted top 10 albums include ' '' and 's ''.

Meanwhile, Jay-Z has pulled 'American Gangster' that was inspired by a movie of the same name from iTunes Store. "As movies are not sold scene by scene, this collection will not be sold as individual singles," Jay reasoned. It will be available online in its entirety at Amazon.com, Rhapsody.com, and Rocafella.com.
