    I've been tweeting Drake for 2 years now and Take Care is still Platinum with RIAA:

    @RIAA @Drake @YoungMoneySite @RepublicRecords "Take Care" has sold 2,266,000 copies in USA. Should be certified 2 times #Platinum w/ #RIAA

    ONE-DAY SALES: LANA & THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM

    As things stand now, Lana Del Rey will top both our sales and SPS charts next Friday. But there’s a giant X factor—Drake’s Instagram has referenced Sunday as release day for his collaborative mixtape with Future. If it’s a giveaway, as expected, the sales chart won’t be impacted. If not, all bets are off.

    Drake & Future to Release Joint Album 'What a Time to Be Alive'
    By Ashley Iasimone | September 19, 2015

    Drake and Future took to Instagram on Saturday, Sept. 19, to confirm that they’ve collaborated on a new album -- and that it will be available very soon. What a Time to Be Alive is scheduled to hit iTunes and Apple Music at 8 p.m. EST on Sunday, Sept. 20.

    DRAKE-FUTURE MIXTAPE GOES LIVE—AND STRAIGHT TO #1

    Label insiders believe the Drake-Future mixtape, What a Time to Be Alive, could sell as much as 500k in its opening week, which began on Sunday night when it crash-landed on iTunes. The set will be an Apple exclusive for one week before going to other retailers and Spotify.

    Drake previewed the collaborative mixtape on his Beats 1 OVO Sound Radio show Sunday night, just before it became available commercially on Sunday night, mere hours before it went live on the iTunes store and quickly flew to #1 there. (See below for a track list with credits.)

    You'll recall that Apple reportedly paid Drake $19 million for his services as a Beats 1 DJ. His Feb. "mixtape," If You're Reading This It's Too Late, moved about 541k in its first week with singles and streams, later becoming the first 2015 release to hit the 1 million mark. It also set several streaming records. His previous release, the "official" 2013 album Nothing Was the Same, sold 658k in its first week and has gone on to sell 2.4m.

    The arrival of What a Time in the marketplace radically changes the picture for Friday’s chart, where the latest from Interscope’s Lana Del Rey previously looked like a strong contender for #1. Now, Drake-Future is expected to have a huge first week—even with just four days on this week’s chart it looks bound to blow away not just this week’s competition but most of the year’s first-week figures.

    First-week sales of the last collabo of this magnitude in hip hop, the Kanye-Jay Z set Watch the Throne, did 437K. Can Drake and Future break that record, as the aforementioned label peeps believe?

    Meanwhile, will Spotify take this release, or will they ignore it, as they did Dr. Dre’s Compton: A Soundtrack?

    The set’s release was greenlit after a last-minute deal was struck between the artists’ labels, Cash Money and Epic, with the latter label’s chief, L.A. Reid, insisting the mixtape go to market as the company is now mid-cycle on Future’s DS2 (A1/Freebandz/Epic), which bowed at #1 in July. That set is currently at #25 at iTunes. Republic will handle marketing and promotion on the set.

    Insiders say the release of What a Time does not preclude a possible new album by Drake this year as well.

Here's what this week’s key debuts look like:

    Nope, these are actual mixtapes. Which can have the same format as an album. His proper albums are separate and he calls them that. Mixtape has another definition, I'm starting to believe, outside of urban America!
    I was waiting for Bey to drop so she could show that T&A arent the only ones smashing album SALES!!!

    Eight of the Top 10 albums on Friday could be debuts, led by the barnstorming Drake-Future set. Here’s how it looks at midweek.

    ^more than 100k copies?! Oh, no.
    OK. I'm a fan of Drake but I don't care anything from two mixtapes.
    I don't know why he release these records without any musical factors...

    However, I hope that he gets another platinum record in US.

    Drake and Future's Surprise Album Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart
    By Keith Caulfield | September 27, 2015 5:11 PM EDT

    Drake and Future’s surprise album What a Time to Be Alive charges in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, giving Drake his second chart-topper of 2015. The set earned 375,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Sept. 24, according to Nielsen Music — of that sum, 334,000 were pure album sales.

    The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new Oct. 10-dated chart (where Drake and Future are No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, Sept. 29.

    What a Time to Be Alive was released Sunday, Sept. 20 (through A-1/Freebandz/Young Money/Cash Money/Epic/Republic Records), and was initially exclusively available through Apple Music and the iTunes Store. The set was only announced one day earlier, and its release came on an off-cycle Sunday (as most albums are now released on a Friday each week, the first day of the Billboard 200's tracking week).

    Let’s take a look at some of the statistics that accompany Drake and Future’s debut:

    Third-Largest Week for an Album in 2015, by Units: The only larger weeks were racked by the debuts of The Weeknd’s Beauty Behind the Madness (412,000) and Drake’s other surprise album, If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late (535,000).

    Second Largest Sales Week for an Album in 2015: What a Time to Be Alive sold 334,000 in pure album sales, making it the second-biggest sales week this year. The only larger week was racked by Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late (495,000).

    Drake and Future Are the First Hip-Hop Acts Since 2004 to Score Two No. 1 Albums in a Calendar Year: With the arrival of What a Time to Be Alive, both Drake and Future tally their second leaders on the Billboard 200 in 2015.

    Drake debuted at No. 1 earlier in 2015 with If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late. Future scored his first No. 1 nearly two months ago with DS2.

    The last hip-hop act to earn multiple No. 1s within a calendar year was Jay Z back in 2004. He reached the top that year with Unfinished Business (with R. Kelly) and MTV Ultimate Mash-Ups Presents: Collision Course (with Linkin Park). The last act, regardless of genre, to notch more than one No. 1 album in a calendar year was Justin Timberlake, who saw both volumes of his The 20/20 Experience debut at No. 1 in 2013.

    Drake and Future are also the first hip-hop acts to collect multiple No. 1 albums within a 12-month span of time since 2011, when Lil Wayne managed the feat with Tha Carter IV and I Am Not a Human Being.

    Drake and Future are members of an elite group of acts to have more than one No. 1 album in a 12-month frame. They are the first to do so since One Direction in late 2014, when Four’s chart-topping arrival came less than a year after Midnight Memories bowed at No. 1.

    What a Time… is Drake’s Fifth No. 1 Album: Drake has collected five straight No. 1s on the Billboard 200, all of which debuted at No. 1. It follows If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, Nothing Was the Same (in 2013), Take Care (2011) and Thank Me Later (2010).

    Future’s Second No. 1 in Less Than Two Months: Less than two months after Future earned his first No. 1, with DS2, he’s back on top with What a Time to Be Alive.

    Drake and Future lead a busy top 10 on the Billboard 200, where six more albums arrive in the region, including new efforts from Lana Del Rey, Mac Miller and David Gilmour.

    http://www.hotnewhiphop.com/drakes-h...ews.17996.html

    So, Hotline Bling reachs #3 this week on the Hot 100. And he has chances of having the #2 song next week on the Hot 100.

    He is leading the streaming and on-demand songs race vs Bieber, and acoording to kworb estimations, he will be 30k or 40k above Bieber on Digital Songs...on Radio the distance is 30k leading for Bieber and it will remain stable during this week.

    So the #2 is a big possibility even if Drake doesn't launch the video this week.

    The Hills is #1 at Radio, Digital and Streaming...

    Drake will have the #1 Digital Song this week, in Radio it will be 80 or 70k behind. Drake have the #1 On-Demand Song, and if he launchs the video he will have the #1 streaming song for sure too......We will have a nice battle for #1 on the next weeks, and this time Drake have very big chances of having his first #1 single as a lead artist. Remember Best I Ever had have 4 weeks consecutives at #2, he was behind the Black Eyed Peas Boom Boom Pow, and when he finally have a shot for #1, the BEP launchs I Gotta Feeling...he has no chance against that.

    TOP 15: SELENA TAKES THE LEAD

    It’s still close at midweek—also known as Tuesday—but for now we’re giving a slight edge to Interscope’s Selena Gomez for #1 on Friday’s album chart. Gomez stretches her lead considerably, however, when tracks and streams are factored in. eOne’s The Game is holding up surprisingly well with The Documentary 2 and driving interest in this Friday’s release of his follow-up, The Documentary 2.5. Here’s how it looks at midweek:
