It was expected that Drake’s latest album would meet statistic expectations pretty quickly. After a creative rollout of promotion filled with previews, singles and some funny memes, Drizzy’s official numbers for VIEWS‘ first-week sales are in — and they’re major. Debuting at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, the LP is expected to sell approximately 900,000 copies in its first week after fans got their first taste of it on April 29 via iTunes and Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio during OVO Sound’s 20th episode — all of which will contribute to the album’s overall sum for the week.
The numbers officially make VIEWS the 6 God’s most successful release, surpassing 2015′s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late‘s 658,000 first-week copies.
