According to Chart Data, CLB has sold more than 500,000 units in the United States in under one week, formally making it the first album of 2021 to do so. The news arrives just shortly after the record out-streamed Kanye West’s DONDA, earning over 430 million audio streams in the US in the first three days after its release; DONDA earned 423 million streams in its first eight days.
The 21-track album boasts a stacked list of guest appearances from Lil Baby, Lil Durk, GIVEON, JAY-Z, Travis Scott, Future, Young Thug, 21 Savage, Tems, Project Pat, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross and Kid Cudi. “A combination of toxic masculinity and acceptance of truth which is inevitably heartbreaking. Executive produced by me, Noah “40” Shebib, Oliver El-Khatib, and Noel Cadastre. Dedicated to Nadia Ntuli and Mercedes Morr. RIP,” Drake wrote on Apple Music.
