Drake's New LP Tops Billboard Charts
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 10.01.2013
Drake has another #1 hit album, even if it will only last for a week. Billboard reports that his third album Nothing Was the Same sits at a final tally of 658,000 copies to top the Billboard 200 chart this week. That number is the second-highest week of the year behind Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience, which sold 968,000 during its first week of release.
Ironically, Drake will likely lose out to Timberlake next week for #1, as The 20/20 Experience should take the #1 spot as reported earlier. All three of Drake's LP to hit #1; this is his best sales week, just topping 2011's Take Care which debuted with 631,000.
The full Billboard chart will be revealed tomorrow.
