Young Money rapper Drake will be very happy after his album, Nothing Was The Same, topped the sales charts.
With 658,000 copies of Nothing Was The Same sold, Drake’s latest album easily scores a chart No. 1 (with more than five times as many copies sold at the No. 2 entry, Kings of Leon’s Mechanical Bull).
It will likely go on to sell many more copies as well, especially if songs like bonus track “Come Thru” are released as singles. It’s the second-best opening week of the year, after Justin Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience sold 968,000. And it easily bests Jay Z’s opening weeks sales of 527,000.
