Drake shared that VIEWS has officially gone gold, selling an estimate of 630,000 copies in just 24hrs.
Drake’s fourth studio album just defeated ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’ (535,000) and ‘What A Time To Be Alive’ (375,000) in first week sales.
During a listening party for VIEWS in his hometown “Toronto” on Friday night April 29, the Toronto native shared that his soundscape has officially gone gold, selling an estimate of 630,000 copies on the project’s release date.
To the packed venue, Drizzy shared, ‘I got a text message that we’ve sold like 630,000 records in one night. That’s the first time I’ve ever done that sh*t, so thank you very much.’
While Drizzy might be poised to make history with this album, he’s also looking to create magic in the studio again with fellow artist Kanye West soon. During an interview with Zane Lowe, he revealed that he’s planning to head back into the lab with Yeezy.
‘We have a few things that we’ve worked on. It’s all about finding a place for it. ‘Ye is one of my favourite people in the world … I hope we get some more music out,’ he said. ‘We were supposed to do a mixtape, album together.’
