Drake’s New Album Debuts At No. 1 With 658,000 Copies In This Week’s Album Sales (10/2/2013)

Drake With Owl

The numbers are in. As previously reported, Drake’s third studio effort Nothing Was The Same has topped the Billboard 200 albums chart. NWTS officially sold 658,000 copies its first week, marking Drizzy’s highest selling album of his career. The album is the biggest rap release for the genre since Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV debuted at No. 1 in September 2011.

Elsewhere, 2 Chainz’s B.O.A.T.S. II: #MeTime and MMG’s Self Made Vol. 3 moved significant numbers. However, industry forecasters are already looking ahead to next week’s chart, which say Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2 will be top of the Billboard 200. Here’s our breakdown of this week’s releases, as well as the rest of the albums that placed on the charts.
