Drake would easily sell 2+ million first week if he debuted in the physical sales era. He already sold 1 mill with VIEWS, and 1.7 million with Scorpion (with singles), 2 million is definitely possible for him.

Eminem had singles going multi-plat back then too on top of his albums.

That was during the TRL era. Em, Brittany Spears, Backstreet Boys, N'Sync, and Nelly all sold a ridiculous amount of records.

I don't think it's a slam dunk. This was pre Kanye West. Drake would've actually had to rap back then. Ja Rule was probably the closest to a Drake and he never had a million in one week. After his 1st album no guys were checking for a Ja Rule album.

People like to discredit the new era because of streams but act like the top artists werent pop sensations. Like they didnt have the machine shoving them in your face. Back when music videos played on tv all day... back when there were actual music video shows. Cut it out. If these new artists had the same promo, they'd do the same numbers Em did.

Give them credit, these streaming artists do it with social media and ads. They put more work in to get those streams then your Ems, Jays, and Nellys.

Carter 3 did a million+ in a week, 500 thousand first day(highest ever i believe), and i think 2 million by the second week...and he did this in 08 at the height of the download era. In 02 he woulda easily did 2 million first week

Drake does rap. Ja Rule wasnt a technical lyricist anyway. Drake would have sold because he (or whoever runs his moves) is smarter than any artist ever on the PR side. Drake manipulates his Ls into success. Its not because the era either. Its his character.

Didnt think of that but thats true. Carter 4 did a little short of a million in a week. His impact was way bigger than Em.

True but the run that Wayne had to go on in order to do that took about 2-3 years to build up. How many mixtapes and guest features did he do from Carter 2 until Carter 3? Em put out a single (The Real Slim Shady) and a video to match and there you had it.and it was more mixtape era then download era. Em did that in Napster era/ album leaking weeks in advance. Wayne redid Carter 3 how many times?

True but how many times did dam near the whole album leak and he had to call the sh*t a mixtape and redo it. And every n*gga i know had that album and none of em paid for it, so i can imagine what was going on around the country, but we aint gonna compare apples to oranges...let's just say em was the hottest rapper when mmlp dropped and wayne was the hottest when the carter 3 dropped. Head to head in the same era under the same circumstances they woulda both did numbers

I meant if people still bought albums today, not if Drake existed in those days

Did he have two number one singles before his album dropped, and another number one after it dropped?

Back then that Quentin Miller sh*t wouldn't fly. I'm not saying Drake wouldn't of sold. But he wasn't doing 1.76 million. Hell let's not act like Adele and Taylor Swift aren't putting physical numbers up in this streaming era.

Those who weren’t present during that time will never understand how BIG Eminem was. I have never seen anything close to it till this day and probably never will. Maybe 50 Cent at the height of his prime, but even that was nothing compared to the level of hype fascination admiration worship curiosity anticipation and interest Eminem generated.

No they wouldn't because you're forgetting the quality aspect that was heavy back then...that sh*t really meant something...and creativity also mattered.

Migos, and Drake might have had a decent career depending on when they dropped...and it would have had to have been during the Bling/Super Producer/Ringtone era ...but they definitely wouldn't have been as big

But NONE of them n*ggas would have done Em numbers...and you know why

n*gga cut it

And I'm not one of these Lil goofy new n*ggas but don't over hype that album. It's so weird now

Cuz back when nelly was actually hot, so called Street n*ggas and n*ggas on the internet was Hatin hard

Sayin he was k*llin the culture, too pop, too singy, etc

Its like everything from that Era is now praised. Just look at ja rule, old cash money, mase, Crunk music, etc

n*ggas sh*tted on all that sh*t now they get nostalgia and show love
