We still may be a little confused on whether Drake’s latest project is actually an album or a mixtape, but in either case his unexpected release debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200. If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late did better than any other release this year, aside from Taylor Swift’s 1989.
According to Billboard, the OVO delegate sold 495,000 copies during the first week. It was a slight disappointment because of its predicted 500,000 sales target, but at the end of the day it was a huge win for Drizzy.
Many people believed that Drake would have released this project for free, however, with it going retail it may have been a ploy by Drake to speed up his departure time from Cash Money Records. Drake is still diligently hard at work on his album, Views From The 6, which will be out later this year, and will reportedly be the final release needed to meet his 5 album deal with Birdman and Cash Money Records.
