While Drake stays featured with your favorite artist and on the radio non-stop, Beyonce’ aka Queen Bee is normally known for topping Billboard 200 charts and out selling everyone damn near in the game. This time Drake is giving Beyonce’, Kanye West, Rihanna the Late Great Prince and everyone else a run for their money. Reportedly his label Republic Records released his album “Views” numbers at 250 million streams within the first day of release, which numbers still have to be confirmed by the RIAA, Record Industry Association of America, a trade group that claims to represent the U.S. recording industry.
Versus Beyonce’s Lemonade album that sold 485k copies in the first week while Drake did 575k copies in one day!! The only difference between the two is Drake had time to promote and Beyonce likes dropping bombs on her fans. Well here is an atomic bomb from The 6 God….Drake topped Kanye’s “The Life Of Pablo” record of 250 million copies sold in 7 days, where Kanye did that number in 10 days. People who watch the charts are now comparing him to Adele. Those are going to be some pricey concert tickets. With the album only out on iTunes and Apple Music right now, as of tomorrow May 6, 2016 physical copies will be shipped out.
With selling over 1 million copies in just 6 days, The 6 God is racking up all kinds of goodies for this years “Summer Sixteen” tour where he will be on tour with rap artist Future. This is his biggest week of sales in his music career. Looks like Nicki should have picked him, that would’ve been a crazy power couple. Back to the Billboards…..
