[Hip Hop News Now] Drake Claims That He Sold Over 600k Copies of “Views” In One Day

Just a few days ago October’s Very Own, Drake, released his highly anticipated album Views. Last night while at a Views listening party in Toronto, Drake boasted to the crowd that he sold around 630,000 copies of his new album in one night. You can hear him in the clip above.

If comparing Drake’s album, What a Time to Be Alive sold 375,000 first week and If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late moved 535,000 units in a three day span.

Views will surely debut at No. 1 next week and mostly likely hit platinum status soon after. The “One Dance” single is already crushing records on the U.K. charts and has quickly become Drake’s first No. 1 hit on the Canadian Billboard Hot 100. Only time will tell what heights this album will take the Toronto native. One thing is for sure, over 600,000 copies sold in one night is phenomenal and once the album hits Spotify, the insane numbers of streaming will continue to soar. The question I have for you is, “Where does Views fall in comparison to Drakes previous releases?”  

Is this Drake’s best work to date?  Let us know by commenting below.

[Hot New Music!] Drake – “Back To Back” Freestyle (Meek Mill Diss)

drake-looking-back

Drake is bringing it to “Back to Back” on Meek Mill with his latest diss track. The “Back to Back” freestyle is a problem and Hip Hop listeners are now waiting in great anticipation for Meek to bring the solution.  By now, everyone is in the loop on this Hip Hop beef, but here is a quick run down.  

  1. *Last week, Meek accused Drake of having a ghost writer.
  2. Over the weekend, Drake responded by dropping “Charged Up” diss.
  3. Meek called the diss, “Baby lotion soft.”
  4. Monday, Meek was scheduled to drop a diss track via Hot 97, but he never did.
  5. The Pinkprint Tour hit Toronto, Meek hit the stage with the words “F*ck You” on the screen behind him.
  6. Today, Drake unleashes “Back to Back” diss.

*This actually did not happen first, but only Drake and Meek know what actually started the rift between these two emcees.

Today, Drake looked for the “checkmate” move as he dropped his new diss track, which you can hear below.

Apparently shortly after the “Back to Back” diss was released someone started a gofundme.com account to help Meek Mill record his Drake diss track. That’s how important it is for Meek to respond at this point.

There is even a newly developed website, SaveMeekMill.com, which is set up to help build Meek’s brand by collecting donations to buy school supplies for the youth in Meek’s hometown of Philadelphia.  However, don’t let the positive mission statement fool you. The website states, “We strive to inspire the youth into different career paths other than being the type of rapper Meek Mill once glorified. We will save the youth from any future embarrassment caused at the hands of their rap adversaries when they find themselves in a beef — inspired by the one Meek Mill is currently losing to Drake. How? By inspiring them to not be like Meek Mill at all.”

The ball is in your court Meek. You’re down in points, but it’s your possession. So what are you going to do? The clock is ticking…
