Drake’s Album ‘Thank Me Later’ Lives Up To High Expectations

Drake made big waves in the music industry when he released his highly acclaimed mixtape ‘So Far Gone’. Without a proper record deal the Canadian rapper pretty much revolutionised the importance of a mixtape, spurning global chart hits from the independent EP and even being nominated for two Grammy awards. Since then the pressure has been on the Young Money rapper to deliver an official album that can match up to his previous work…

With a buzz so big it could scare a swarm of bees, all eyes were on Drizzy to see if he could recreate some more magic and live up to all the hype that surrounds him. In a time where people are not buying actual CDs like they used to, not to mention fans were gifted his ‘So Far Gone’ mixtape for free, many questioned whether he could make the sales target that many critics claim he has to reach in order to live up to expectations.

Well Drizzy seems to have eased passed those expectations, and then some.  Hits Daily Double tallies that 462,989 fans purchased Drake’s debut album, ‘Thank Me Later’. As a result, the LP will enter the Billboard charts at number one as the highest selling debut this year. Congratulations.
