Drake's New Album " Views " Sales Well In Steam Media
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.
It's been clear since last weekend that Views was well on its way to an impressive debut. The album sold 600,000 copies worldwide on iTunes in a single day, a total that almost eclipsed Drake's personal best first-week sales in a fraction of the time. There's also a good chance the album's gradual rollout to brick-and-mortar storefronts and other streaming services helps to sustain its sales figures.
