Drake Will Sell 725,000 Copies of ‘Take Care’ in Week One

Following its official Nov. 15 release, Drake‘s sophomore album ‘Take Care’ is expected to fly off the shelves in droves during its first week. It is estimated that a whopping 675,000 – 725,000 copies of ‘Take Care’ will be sold this week, even despite the album’s unauthorized leak onto the internet over a week ahead of schedule.

The estimate, courtesy of industry trade publication Hits Daily Double, makes Drake a shoe-in for the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 albums chart next week. That means Drizzy will be two for two when it comes to debuting albums at No. 1. His first studio release, ‘Thank Me Later,’ grabbed the top spot with more than 447,000 copies sold in its first week.

Speaking of thank yous, Drake should thank all the artists who helped him out on his collab-heavy album, which includes features from the likes of Rihanna, Andre 3000, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, the Weekend, Stevie Wonder and sound clash opponent Lil Wayne.

The estimated sales for ‘Take Care’ will put the Canadian-born rapper in third place for 2011 release week album sales, behind Lady Gaga‘s 1.1 million-selling ‘Born This Way’ and labelmate Lil Wayne’s 964K for ‘Tha Carter IV.’
