    Drake’s new album, Views, has been streamed over 250 million times and has so far sold 1.2 million copies (this includes the streaming album equivalents).

    Over 200 million of Views’ streams have originated in the US, and the album has also sold more than 1 million digital copies through iTunes around the world. Its domestic sales totals aren’t clear yet, but Billboard forecasted over 850,000 digital album sales earlier this week. That’d be the highest total for a male artist since Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience was released over three years ago. When you add in its streaming figures and individual track sales, the album is on pace to move over 1 million equivalent album units in the US alone. (The international figure is closer to 1.2 million.)

    What did it sell without the stream equivalents?

    I love this album. Was iffy on it after the first listen but now I can't stop. It grew on me for sure

    I don't get the hype at all. Since Drake came out back in the late 00's, all I hear is monotone rapping over beats that could be made in Garageband.

    Hi, I'm Negan ;)

    same. I get sick of the Drake rapping all the time, I need these slow songs bad. "Fire and Desire" might be one of my top Drake songs.

    Same! I listen to every release by him in hopes something clicks, but I don't get it. Never will. His monotone rapping makes every song sound the same.
