    But is still damn many! Drake does it big and from the number you see it 😀 GOOO DRAKE!! YM :


  3. conor Says:

    Well when you hear everyone hyping this album up saying he is gonna surpass Wayne then it looks dissapointing, but still a good debut effort. Album was dissapointing tbh.


  4. BabyBoyVon Says:

  5. Luiseezy F. Crazy Says:

  6. Watsonnn Says:

    “Thank me later, first week I’m taking all bets, because a million copies isn’t really far fetched” – Mo Milli, birdman ft drake.

    i guess he probably lost alot of bets haha.


  9. DJ Rollin Deep Says:

    Almost gold! Congrats to Drake. In this day and age near Gold as a debut album is pretty much unheard of. Drizzy killed it.


  10. iDropKiidz V157 Says:

    Thank me later sucks its the truth not so bad but i knew it wasnt going to sell a mill cuz 1 it was leaked like 2 weeks b4 it came out nd my opinion only like 3 songz were good miss me wit wayne unforgettable nd light up wit wayne which wasnt on the album the other songz were good but i just didnt really like them nd it kinda sucks because drake wayne and gudda r like the only ones i listen 2 in YM… FREE WEEZY_ xbox LIVE gamer tag = sSK3tch V157


  11. J-hunt da Prodigy Says:

    A lot of ppl are acting like sailing nearly 500,000 is a failure, hell no it ain’t, especially not in today’s industry. Jay-Z did nearly the same amount week one with Blueprint 3, and he had way more commerically sucessful singles then Drake. The only ppl who’ve been doing numbers like that recently are artists like Maxwell, Sade, & Eminem who were gone for extended periods of time. I think Eminem will do more or less what Drake did. Only one who may best him this year, is Kanye is he drops good ass job.


  12. lilweezyfan1 Says:

    yeah drake, this is awsome. and i told u guys. and i was right he will sell this many in the first week. and the album is sick. free weezy 🙂


  13. Jeffon Says:

  14. #FreeWayne! Says:

  17. YM Says:



  18. Patrick Says:

    Eminem will sell more than Drake. He is a bigger artist internationally and his CD as a whole is better.


  19. J-Rad Says:

  20. Tunne Says:

    Its Good, I Knew He Was Gonna Be Close To 500, Half Of Lil Waynes Carter 3, Even Tho, Lil Wayne Wanted 2 Milli in A Week. LOL


  21. K-Freshz Says:

  28. Akillees Says:
