He may not have performed at last Sunday’s Grammy Awards, but with the release of his new video ‘Started From The Bottom‘ dropping on the same night, Drake ensured his name stayed hot on everyone’s lips as the star studded night went on.
The best part about this is though, that while the video’s launch comes as part of the push for this third studio album ‘Nothing Was The Same‘, it’s arrival has gone some way in rekindling interest in his 2011 LP, ‘Take Care‘.
Full story below…
Sure to leave many of his detractors all flavors of distressed, ‘Care’ kicks dust in their faces when combined US sales of 1,996,634, placing him just 3,3666 units away from hooking up with the 2 million units sold mark.
Kind of epic, considering it’s set to nab this figure without a US #1 single despite its lead single ‘Headlines’ hitting the Platinum mark for sales of over 1 million units after peaking at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Elsewhere in Chart land, Chris Brown‘s ‘Fortune’ edges closer to Gold status with 423,637 units shifted since June 29th, while Usher’s ‘Looking For Myself’ sits in similar territory with 459,980 albums sold in the market.
As far as the ladies go, Rihanna’s ‘Unapologetic’ holds a spot in the Top 20 with 23,729 units sold this week- bring her combined US sales for the album to 679,537 while Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ continues to soar outside of the US with a sweet 1.5 million purchased since April 3rd.
Well done to all!
