Drake’s Nothing Was The Same is set to top the Billboard 200 charts this week.
Drizzy’s optimism turned out to be half-true (not quite a millie), as his album will attain Gold certification, according to HitsDailyDouble. Early projections indicated his album is on course to sell over 675,000 copies in the first week. Currently, NWTS has sold 658, 179 copies.
The Toronto native’s latest studio effort with marks his third consecutive time going No. 1. His previous albums—2010’s Thank Me Later and 2011’s Take Care—sold 447,000 copies and 631,000 copies, respectively.
Drake only had two singles during his promo run for NWTS. “Started From The Bottom” and “Hold On, We’re Going Home” broke the top ten in the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
