probably woulda hit 500k easy if the album hadnt leaked. not to mention at least 7 of the songs leaking before that. After people actually heard what it sounded like, im sure most people decided not to buy

Alot of yall on BX, are plain haters, did his debut flop? No he almost went gold in a week, in a era where PHYSICAL CDs don't sell anymore. I feel like he didn't sell more units because of bad timing with this release, if this was june 2009, I bet he wouldve doubled his numbers easily. "Young Money" or Drake himself, saturated the market by having him drops hooks on every damn single and birdman song possible, he dropped hits with timbaland, which just drops his demand!

Let's face it, if Drake was a s hot as his buzz everyone would be on that s**t. That's not what happened. Never the less, it's not bad numbers, but considering the investment in Drake, it's a toss up on whether or not he will end up being a good investment.

Perspective: B.o.B, with the #1 single in the country, did 85,000 to debut at #1 on the charts.

400,000 is far from a flop; despite the fact that Drake was the most-hyped rapper in 09.

I can almost guarantee we will never see a rap album debut with more than 600,000 again (and I only see 3 rappers at most reaching that plateau)

FLOPPPP. wit that buzz this is unacceptable
comments like this are funny to me...

i think those numbers are fitting to his hype...

this n*gga's debut sold more than your favorite rapper's first week numbers...

agreed the album isn't a classic, far from it, but based on that hype, the n*gga damn near went gold on his first week...

it's not jaw dropping spectacular numbers, but flop???

you reachin my dude...

Dudes reaching for the hate

Especially on a site that likes to preach that "numbers don't matter". They only dont matter when your favorite artist isnt selling
