As charts are on track to reveal, it’s a great time to be Drake and Future.
For, with anticipation for their mixtape ‘What A Time To Be Alive’ (in stores now) reaching an almost feverish pitch, industry analysts are already lending predictions for what the set will move its first full week of availability.
After Future’s last project ‘DS2’ and Drizzy’s ‘If You’re Reading This…’ mixtapes both landed at #1 upon their respective release weeks this year, the expectation for ‘Time’ is undoubtedly high.
As the predictions roll in, find out below if the dynamic duo will live up to the hype:
First week sales: 500,000
“Label insiders believe the Drake-Future mixtape, What a Time to Be Alive, could sell as much as 500k in its opening week, which began on Sunday night when it crash-landed on iTunes.
Drake’s “Hotline Bling” single, meanwhile, which is not a part of the mixtape, is #1 on the singles side at iTunes.”
Knocking previous #1 contender Lana Del Rey out of the running for the top spot, ‘Time’ proceeds Drake’s hotly anticipated new project ‘Views From the 6.’
