Drake’s 'Take Care' Tops Billboard 200
The Canadian rapper’s latest release sold 631,000 copies in its first week
Mac Miller no longer has the top spot on the Billboard 200 album chart. But another Jewish rapper does; Drake’s latest release, Take Care, tops the chart after selling 631,000 copies in a week.
Drake wrote the following on Twitter a couple of days a go: “I can't even find the words to express my appreciation...'thank you and I owe you' is all that comes to mind...truly.”
Even though many industry experts predicted Take Care would sell between 670,000 and 700,000 copies, the album still sold at an impressive rate. The Canadian artist’s new album is the third highest debut of the year (so far). Lady Gaga holds the top spot (her sophomore release, Born This Way, sold 1.1 million copies), followed by Lil Wayne’s The Carter IV, which sold 964,000 copies in its first week, according to Billboard.
