Drake and Future’s joint album What a Time To Be Alive charges in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, becoming Drizzy’s second chart-topper of 2015. The project sold 375,000 equivalent album units in the week ending September 24, according to Nielsen Music — of that amount, 334,000 were pure album sales. What a Time to Be Alive was released on Sunday, September 20, as a collaborative release through Cash Money Records with Epic. It was initially exclusively available through Apple Music and the iTunes Store. The sales also mark the third-largest week for an album in 2015. The other two were The Weeknd’s Beauty Behind the Madness (412,000) and Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late (535,000). And to top things off, it also marks the second-highest sales week for an album this year behind Drake’s IYRTITL.
