G.O.O.D. Music president Pusha T and A$AP Rocky‘s newest solo offerings are set to dominate the sales chart. The hip-hop stars’ must-hear albums are slated to secure Top 5 spots.

Based on early estimates, Rocky’s Testing is en route to outsell Pusha’s Daytona.

Shawn Mendes should debut at #1 next Friday. Pusha T, meanwhile, gets a big look after trading disses with Drake. Here’s what early reads are telling us.

Shawn Mendes (Island) 135-155k total activity, 95-115k album
A$AP Rocky (RCA) 80-100k, 15-18k
Pusha T (Def Jam) 65-75k, 18-23k (HITS Daily Double)

This week, rap star Kanye West gave Rocky a strong album co-sign.

In a new interview, Rocky talked about piecing together his new LP’s sound.

“I’ve discovered sounds that I’ve never heard before, so I’m trying to manifest all of that into my new stuff,” Rocky explains. “Do you ever hear people when they describe that LSD experience and they tell you about colors that they never seen before? That’s what I’m trying to describe. It’s like the manifestation of drugs…” He chuckles. “…without being so vocal about it.” (Complex)
