Drake’s ‘Nothing Was The Same’ Is Set To Sell 675,000 Copies In First Week
Looks like Drake’s new album is heading straight for the No. 1 spot. Dubbing ‘NWTS’ the “second-biggest debut of the year so far”, the HITS Daily Double says the LP will bring in between 675-725k.
Possibly falling under Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience, which brought in 968,000 copies first week, Drake’s new album is likely to kick off quarter 4 as the top selling hip-hop album of the year. As his third studio effort, ‘NWTS’ is set to outsell Drizzy’s 2011 sophomore LP Take Care, selling 631,000 its opening week and his 2010 debut Thank Me Later which moved 447,000 units in its first week .
Coincidently, along with the release of his latest album, Drake also unveiled the long awaited visual to “Hold On We’re Going Home”. Featuring A$AP Rocky, the Toronto native plays a gangster who risks it all for the sake of love.
