Drake Projected to Sell 675-725k Albums First Week

Now that’s Drake’s official sophomore album is out, it looks like he’s on pace to have one of the most successful first weeks for a rapper this year.

According to Hits Daily Double, the YMCMB rapper’s Take Care album, which hit stores and iTunes Tuesday (November 15), is expected to land on top of the Billboard 200 by moving an estimated 675,000-725,000 units.

If the prediction is on point, it will mean that Drizzy’s second album had a substantially better week than his first. Last year, Thank Me Later moved a shade over 450,000 in its first week.

Also out this week, Childish Gambino’s Camp is expected to sell between 45,000 and 50,000 copies, while Webbie’s Savage Life 3 is heading toward sales of roughly 25,000 in its first week.

Stay tuned to to find out the official sale numbers when they are announced next week. —Adam Fleischer
