Drake’s new album Views sold over 600000 copies on iTunes yesterday – The Verge
Drake is defined to achieve the biggest sales week of his career. The rapper�s latest album, Views, sold over 600,000 copies on iTunes in the first One day of availability, sources near Republic Records confirmed to The Verge. The gigantic sales total has Drake on pace to only best the first-week sales of his last album, Nothing Was Exactly the same, which sold a career-best 658,000 copies in a week.
Drake acknowledged the milestone throughout a release party for his album late the other day in Toronto, which was caught on video. Of what would be the most surprising fact of history eight days which gave us albums from both Drake and Beyonc�-Views will easily surpass the first-week sales of Beyonc�s latest project Lemonade, that is supposed to come in around 700,000 copies sold once the official numbers are let go tomorrow.
(The likely reason her numbers were comparatively low? Beyonc� didn�t sell Lemonade on its release day, and people who enrolled in Tidal probably didn�t need to drop $18 to buy her album Twenty four hours later.)
Views boasts a strong chance to move 1 million albums in their first week, that’s almost out of the question these days, unless your reputation is Taylor Swift or Adele. If the album does sell One million albums in its first 7 days, it�ll end up being the 21st album to arrive at that mark. Views is exclusively available through Apple Music and iTunes until this Friday.
