Making your predictions will influence our Billboard 200 racetrack odds each week. You can keep changing them throughout the week until the cutoff time on Thursday at 11:59 pm Eastern. Rankings and album units are based upon data revealed every week on Sound off with other fans in our music forum.

For the first week of our contest, you’ll have until August 12 to predict the results of the tracking week of Friday, August 13, through Thursday, August 19. So keep in mind a few high profile releases coming on August 13, including country duo Dan and Shay‘s “Good Things,” rock band The Killers‘ “Pressure Machine,” and 5 Seconds of Summer member Luke Hemmings‘s debut solo album “When Facing the Things We Turn Away From.”

But don’t forget the carryovers that have already proven themselves as chart-topping hits. Olivia Rodrigo‘s “Sour,” Doja Cat‘s “Planet Her,” and Morgan Wallen‘s “Dangerous” have been fixtures near the top of the chart, while newer releases like Billie Eilish‘s “Happier Than Ever” and Nas‘s “King’s Disease II” might continue to make an impact.
