[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.

What a time to be alive!

Last weekend, Drake revealed his plans to release his fourth LP, Views From the 6, in April. Drake also blessed us with a new track, “Summer Sixteen,” in which he continues to walk all over Meek Mill and fire some warning shots at Toronto R&B artist Tory Lanez. The verdict still isn’t in yet on whether or not the Noah “40” Shebib and Boi-1da-produced cut will make the highly anticipated album, but what we do know is this single is the highest debut of Drake’s career.

The new track is already one of the biggest hits of Drake’s career and his highest debut since 2011’s “Take Care” duet with Rihanna.  Stream “Summer Sixteen” below and keep one eye open for the premiere of Drake & Rihanna’s “Work” video.
