Smith’s new album was one of a number of high profile sets that dropped on Nov. 3. Maroon 5’s Red Pill Blues also arrived, and is heading for a No. 2 entry behind Smith, with its debut week forecast currently at around 120,000 units. Also on course for high bows on the chart: Blake Shelton’s Texoma Shore (with perhaps 60,000 units), Kelsea Ballerini’s Unapologetically (45,000), Kid Rock’s Sweet Southern Sugar (around 40,000) and Grace VanderWaal’s first full-length studio album, Just the Beginning (20,000).
