TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA – Drake says he enjoyed blockbuster first-day sales for his VIEWSalbum.
“I got a text message that we sold like 630,000 something records in one night,” the Canadian rapper-singer says in an Instagram clip from his launch party in Toronto posted on utorlive’s Instagram page. “That’s the first time I’ve ever done that shit.”
The project was released Thursday (April 28) to iTunes and is set to arrive on other retailers next week. VIEWS features 20 tracks and includes collaborations with Rihanna, Future, Pimp C and dvsn.
In February 2015, Drake’s If Youre Reading This Its Too Late sold 494,746 albums its first week of availability.
