Drake’s Surprise Album Projected to Hit No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart
If you are reading this...then you know that Drake having the best week ever. The rap superstar’s surprise album, If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, is poised to hit No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart.
The LP, which was released through Young Money/Cash Money/Republic Records on Feb. 12, is selling briskly on iTunes. According to Billboard, industry analysts are forecasting that Drizzy’s project could push 400,00 copies by the end of Tuesday (Feb. 17).
If this prediction holds up, this will be Drake’s fourth No. 1 album of his career. It would also mark the largest sales week for a rap album since Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2 premiered at No. 1 in November 2013 with 792,000 copies.
The 17-track album features three collaborations with PARTYNEXTDOOR, Travi$ Scott and Lil Wayne. The one song that has garnered a lot of attention is track 17 aka “6PM in New York.” On the song, the Grammy-nominated rapper addresses Tyga’s comments in VIBE magazine and his lyrical diss-a-thon about him.
On Friday (Feb. 13), T-Raww clapped back and purportedly made some threats on Twitter. “U still a bitch,” he tweeted. “All that sneak dissin’ is weak.”
Drake has yet to respond to Tyga’s angry roars. There’s still no word on when he will release his proper album, Views From the 6.
