Justine Timberlake is a hard act to follow. Lil Wayne’s I Am Not A Human Being II isn’t expected to put up 900,000+, like that of The 20/20 Experience, but a more modest, 210,000, in a week.

According to Hits Daily Double, Weezy’s highly anticipated release will sell between 190-210,000 copies, and won’t push Timberlake out of the top spot on the Billbaord charts.

By comparison, the 30-year-old’s I Am Not A Human Being album sold 125,000 copies upon its physical release, in October 2010. The digital version, which dropped a month earlier, sold 110,000 downloads, debuting at No. 2 on the charts.

Cash Money CEO, Bryan “Birdman” Williams confirmed that Wayne was working on I Am Not A Human Being II,  last January. The father of four tapped Kanye West’s creative team, DONDA, to design the cover art, and  teamed with producers Mike Will Made It, T-Minus, Juicy,  and more, for the beats.

The album dropped a week after the New Orleans native was released from the hospital after suffering a series of seizures. In promotion of the project, Wayne will embark on the America’s Most Wanted Festival, alongside T.I.
