...you know he sold a million of them right? i think that aint bad marketing.

being one of the biggest artists of all time and just hitting 500K after a year is bad

considering people were talking bout him like he was the next coming of christ and the radio forcing his soft a.ss music down our throats he shoulda sold more than that. s**t he even had the backing of everyones favorite gay rapper (wayne)

putting your most popular hit out before even having a record deal and a cd to put out isnt bad marketing?

seriously tho, unless your single(s) is a WORLDWIDE PHENOMENON, you can kiss "1mil in a week" goodbye

he still did very well... you cant name more than 5 people debuting with 500k in 2010

or your record company buys half of them...ie wayne

i think that drake will at some point in his career, but he needs to bring the hits on the level that he had prior to TML.. . TML is still a hot a.ss album... just lacking the substance that SFG had.... but its amazing to have like 6/+ radio singles... hes already got like 4 videos made

all that money spent to sell a million records...you would be better off making a new cd. once again bad business...if they didnt buy the album yet they arent goin to

i dont think they wasted their time man.. again.. you cant name 5 artists that have been more successful than drake in 2010...

dude has the perfect setup

hes got the white people and black people.. .hes got the urban/club records on lock... he sings and raps... he can act and people wont lose interest in him b/c hes got LITERALLY NO GIMMICK in his act... hes gonna be successful for a while

yeah CM/YM might have spent alot of money on him, but they were successful in establishing him as a BRAND... the DRAKE name is well known.. and hes got his own tour right now... hes winning
you mean its all gimmick right? he does do all those things but does none of them well...people are already losing interest. his buzz is losing steam...

nice try buddy... b/c birdman flopped and only sold 26k in his first week
ok thats why i said WAYNE...universal has no interest in puttin birdman to the top...they know he has no chance of success...Hes a 50 year old man that cant rap at all

now wayne on the other hand they wanted to make him a pop star...i know countless wayne fans and i NEVER saw anyone with a store bought copy of his cd...some of these people are past fan and on to stan and still bootlegged it where are these millions of people who bought it the first week

drake.. hot a.ss record... bulls**t a.ss video....

Real talk drake was under the impression that he didn't need a good music video to sell records.. all them videos that didn't have shyt to do with the song. like i said that andrew dude who be directing all ym videos needs to be fired.

at the end of the day he did what most want to do - I respect him, Now I wont go as far as to say that he's the greatest or something he just has a knack for what he does. The game needs Pimp C....

The game is diluted - he is good but c'mon man! I'm from the 2pac/Biggie/Master P/ Hot Boyz era. Thats when the music went hard.
