And the Predictions Are In…: Future & Drake’s ‘What A Time’ Set To Sell…

Published: Monday 21st Sep 2015 by Rashad

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

Source:

“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.’

      When will your sorry self get a life? I was waiting to call you up on my ‘mistakes’ in my journalistic work? You said maybe it’s a difference in culture – darling, I’m English, we speak the correct and official queens language. Spread your negativity elsewhere Keri Staleson

      • King Mark111 /.\ September 21, 2015

        I couldn’t follow your writing, I come to this site a lot, I read UK online papers and non of them write like that. But whatever, sorry that you Brits sound like deaf people. I did congratulate you on your new job, a blog that can afford a domain. The come up indeed. 🙂

    • What now September 21, 2015

      SCREAMSSSS!!!!!! This will get thumbs down & Rosie will come n here w/ her ‘not my main fav anymore’ excuses. KIII @ Molly & Rosie jumping the ship wen their fad favs’ flops start becoming the jokes of the industry. Isn’t it funny tho how Rosie called Gaga a fad bc she underperformed on her third album and her fav iz repeating the EXACT same thing? KARMA HAZ NO BOUNDARIES!!!! KIIIII

      • King Mark111 /.\ September 21, 2015

        Never heard of her new fave, but as soon as the tumblr artist went #2 and did over 100K, she hopped on the dyck. Lol These losers stan for the charts. I recall the pest being VERY humble in 2011. Lol

      • Queen Molly September 21, 2015

        Whatnot you’re obsessed and pressed idk why tbh

      • What now September 21, 2015

        KIII. Weak minded a** people

  7. Drizzy September 21, 2015

    This mixtape was not that good in my opinion. All the songs sound the same. I didn’t enjoy it.

    • LaQueisha September 21, 2015

      Nobody gives af you faģgot ass flop. Where is your blog faģ?

      • Queen Molly September 21, 2015

        This is nothing but FagNow in hiding.

      • What now September 21, 2015

        B**** that ain’t muah. I make fun of hiz flopping a** blog under my own damn username. I don’t need new alters b****.

      • DEL BEY September 21, 2015

        Rude

      • BrendaHo September 22, 2015

        Dear LaQueisha, Your rude and a typical porch monkey.

        Do yourself a favor, remove the white woman weave from your nappy bald hair, the asian fake nails, remove the corns from the monkey feet and go play in traffic.

        Tell your moms she should have swallowed your back yard ass.

        Love, 100% lesbo who ain’t gonna stan for the “F A G namecalling”.

  8. #TeamTinashe Stan September 21, 2015

    Drake’s impact! And both Meeka Mill and Cedric Hamilton will SEETHE for this….. and I guess Lana Del Rey whose album isn’t that bad. I’ve never listened to her before but “Honeymoon” and “High By The Beach” sounds AWESOME!!!

    Ps I like Future but he is OVERRATED so much his rap skills are very redundant but he is winning with this dog on the leach named Drake.
    And the album is ok, it’s nothing to go crazy about tbh. I am a Drake fan and I know just like other stans, they’ll hype anything they come out with.
    Nicki should of followed suit is ALL I gotta say ????

  9. King Mark111 /.\ September 21, 2015

    I can’t believe the kids are BUYING mixtapes. They’re even calling it a mixtape, lol.

    • RihYonce September 21, 2015

      Exactly it’s free on sprinrilla right now lol , dummies

  10. RihYonce September 21, 2015

    You guys can say what you want about Future but he can make a hit by himself, he’s proven it countless times the mixtape was mostly him Drake hardly rapped on the songs , did you guys not listen to it? Either way future is really talented & I can’t to hear the song with Beyoncé on her album , Drake is also supposedly dropping his album this week as well so I can’t wait for his album too bey will also be on there !!

    • What now September 21, 2015

      Really? Damn Drizzy really trying to get off that Young Money Loan ship isn’t he?

  11. RihYonce September 21, 2015

    I love both future and Drake, they don’t need each other to sell, of course Drake will sell more because he has a larger fan base that buys albums, but future is doing very well he’s the king of trap music.

  12. Queen Molly September 21, 2015

    Crazy smh idk why everyone is trying to drag Ciara and Queen Rosie.

  13. Queen Molly September 21, 2015

        Thanks boo I agree…

  16. Queen Molly September 21, 2015

    weak minded? how babe?

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) September 22, 2015

      By the way throwing the title ‘Queen’ behind hoodrat names without accomplishments like Ciara, or Molly is a disservice to that title.

      What exactly are you Queen of? Strawberry’s? Forever 21? Baby Mama’s? Government cheese line?

      Lol Queen’s of nothing…

  17. #TeamTinashe Stan September 21, 2015

    “Yet I still get attacked tf” …. you mean yet your ass is still getting dragged for how long now? Keep coming for MOTHA and we’ll see.

    • Queen Molly September 21, 2015

      Motha? lmao girl bye if youre talking about Minnie mouse jackson. I show nothing but respect to your fav.

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) September 22, 2015

        And your drag queen, fave wants to be that ‘mouse’so bad she would sell her left nut..

        What does that say about him/her? What does that say about you, you fat bish?

        I will take my ‘Minnie mouse’ over your sewer rat any day…

  18. hmm September 21, 2015

    Kii the dragging Rosie is about to get when the final numbers come in.
    It will be like last year’s ultraviolence post

  19. Dalia September 21, 2015

    Where is Rosie??

  20. shakira stan September 21, 2015

    I bet ciara will start realising that future is so much so much more relevant than her.

  21. Navy Nick September 21, 2015

    I hate that people gotta bring Ciara into this; her album is nice, but oh well it’s done. I personally do not like futures voice/auto/whatever it is.., but he makes good beats and catchy hooks that make u boo your head so kudos bro/Drake is the man, smart and doing big things, it is what it is… I won’t buy this album but what I heard sounds aite…..

  22. Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! September 22, 2015

    Taylor Swift surpasses Kim Kardashian as the most followed person on Instagram

    1989 has sold 8,143,000 million now!

    1989 hasnt left the top 10, after 47 weeks

    and Ryan adams whos done a cover album of 1989, will enter the top 10 of next week album chart

  23. Kelendria September 22, 2015

    Future better make that child support money

  24. LOL September 22, 2015

    LMAO LANA WILL ALWAYS BE GAGA’S MAID, POOR THING LMAO

  25. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans September 22, 2015

    I’ve heard and read about numerous scenarios in which a person listening to Future’S “DS2” overheated his/her car and the album wasn’t even halfway played yet. That’s crazy. Maybe those people need to stop blasting the music. There is such thing as a noise limit for cities.

  26. really September 22, 2015

    Future needed drake. Dirty sprite been out a month and he has only sold 244000. Meek mill album still selling more. Future’s fans need to sit down. Help future album go gold before yall start bragging
