Drake is looking down from the top and it’s crowded below. To celebrate the release of his fourth studio album VIEWS (bka Views From The 6), Drizzy had a private release party a La Vie in Toronto. Taking a look at the video clip below, The 6 God boasted that his first day dales were sales exceeded 600,000 units, “I got a text message that we sold like 630,000 somethin’ records in one night” he announced to the crowd.
If this holds true that would mean Drake is already certified gold and could be platinum when the sales are finalized next week, which also means it’s the highest rap debut since Tha Carter 4 and the biggest for Drake’s career. Check back for the official sales next week.
UPDATE: Drake could do 900-1,000,000 in sales first week including TEA (Track Equivalent Albums) and SEA (Streaming Equivalent Albums). Right now the forecast is at 800,000 for pure sales according to Chart News.
