Drake’s fans are definitely taking care of him. The Young Money star’s sophomore album is on track to make a big entry on the charts in its first week.
Take Care, which has been receiving favorable reviews, is a shoe-in for No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart next week. According to HITS Daily Double, the project is predicted to sell between 675,000-725,000 in its opening week based on one-day sales estimates.
These numbers will give Drizzy the third best debut of the year following Lady Gaga’s Born This Way (1.1 million) and his Young Money boss Lil Wayne, whose album Tha Carter IV sold just under a million in one week.
It will also mark Drake’s second No. 1 debut following Thank Me Later, which entered with 447,000 copies in June 2010.
