Feel free to thank Drake, although you can wait until later if you still haven’t heard his hit debut album, Thank Me Later. Drake moved 447,000 copies of the album in its first week. Considering the album leaked so early, these numbers were what most people were predicting. Despite the leak, Drake was still able to move almost half a million copies in the first week which is nothing to look down upon.
With 447,000 copies in the first week, the album will almost certainly go platinum. Many people thought Drake would be a game changer for the rap industry and while he certainly is creating a name for himself, I don’t think he’s quite the game changer people were hoping for.
No doubt he’s a talented young artist but I don’t think he has fully lived up to the hype, at least not yet.
What do you think? Do you like Drake?
