The new Tyler The Creator album has reportedly already moved over 175,000 units.

Tyler The Creator will very likely score his second straight No. 1 album this week.

According to a report from Hits Daily Double, Tyler’s new album, Call Me If You Get Lost, is shaping up to have his biggest opening week to date with more than 175,000 units sold in just the first day. The report also notes the album’s 180 million streams and counting are bolstered by box set sales which have entirely sold out and were available exclusively via a dedicated site for Call Me If You Get Lost.

Though it’s hard to tell when this album’s cycle actually began, the campaign for Call Me If You Get Lost commenced with a hotline. Soon after, billboards with the album’s title were spotted in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, and other cities across the world. And the album’s lead single, “LUMBERJACK” (which samples Gravediggaz’s “2 Cups of Blood,”) was released in the following days along with a signature audiovisual accompaniment.

Call Me If You Get Lost is the rapper and producer’s sixth studio album. It features appearances from Lil Wayne, Pharrell, 42 Dugg, Teezo Touchdown, Domo Genesis, Brent Faiyaz, Fana Hues, and others. Mixtape pioneer, DJ Drama, is also on hand throughout the project with hallmark drops a la Gangsta Grillz. The album follows 2019’s critical and commercial darling, IGOR, which marked Tyler’s first time debuting at the top of the album chart. With no breakout single, that album went on to earn the Odd Future co-founder his first Grammy for “Best Rap Album” at last year’s awards ceremony.
