According to HitsDailyDouble, J. Cole is projected to sell 225 – 250K copies of his debut album, Cole World: The Sideline Story, in it’s first sales week.

If the estimates hold true Cole will land the #1 spot on the Billboard charts, and it would be the biggest debut album for a solo artist since Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday.
