Forget the 6. Because it’s looking like Drake‘s only ‘VIEWS’ will be from the top of the Billboard 200 next week.
The Canadian rapper uncaged the long-awaited LP last Friday and the latest sales estimates see the set on course to premiere with blockbuster numbers.
Following reports that Drizzy has sold a whopping 630,000 units in just one day, Hits Daily Double confirm that the MC is now set for a 1 million US sales debut – a number which rises to 1.2 million when factoring in streaming from Apple Music.
Beyond being all sorts of phenomenal, it’s apparent that the project’s success narrative is only just starting.
Drake has a history of delivering strong, yet front-loaded sales, yet it appears the this go round there’s a plan in place to ensure they remain steady.
For, as at writing ‘VIEWS’ is only available digitally. Physical units arrive during its second week cycle. A move which could drastically reduce any potential drop.
