A Tribe Called Quest Heading for First No. 1 Album in Over 20 Years
Hip-hop group A Tribe Called Quest is heading for its first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart in more than 20 years, according to industry forecasters.
The act’s new release, We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service, is on course to earn around 120,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Nov. 17, according to prognosticators, and will likely arrive atop the Billboard 200.
The new effort, which is billed as the group’s final album, is their first studio release since 1998’s The Love Movement, and the first since the death of the act’s Phife Dawg in March.
A Tribe Called Quest has topped the Billboard 200 chart once previously, with Beats, Rhymes and Life, which debuted at No. 1 on the list dated Aug. 17, 1996.
