But still where the f**k is Up All Night
Too late for 'Up All Night'. They should've dropped that 4th instead of 'Fancy'. Radio already been playing UAN and people have been downloading it more than Fancy or another other non-single. By the time Fancy's run is over, radio isn't gonna wanna pick UAN back up.

putting your most popular hit out before even having a record deal and a cd to put out isnt bad marketing?
That doesn't even make sense. His label only released Best I Ever Had because it was becoming a hit..not the other way around.

if wayne was havin trouble crossin over from the urban to the pop demographic, then drakes problem is definitely crossin over from pop to urban. hes a pop artist. he does have a few sick verses here and there though. ie: put it down
Real s**t. Drake never had the urban demographic, n*ggah too soft.

That doesn't even make sense. Drake has had SIX #1 songs on Urban radio. Add his featured #1's (Money to Blow, I Invented s3x, Say Something) and that makes nine. "Fancy" is about to be the tenth in about a month.

Drake has never had a Pop #1. Not even Best I Ever Had or Find Your Love.

Realistically....times have changed, I'm not expecting anyone to sell a million in their first week no more...and neither should anyone, I still find it very commendable that most of these rappers are pulling in the numbers that they do. Props Drake, no explaination needed, but I must confess, you could have come a little Harder on your debut.

i think they meant pop phenomenon... a record that would stand the test of time and be in the top 20 of this decade

every artist doesnt have millions of fans that will buy their album regardless of how good it is like eminem

you're just reaching
How am i reaching?i wasnt wanna the people saying he was gonna do this and that in the 1st place.Now that he neither did this or that its the people that hyped him that are reaching ...............for excuses


50 came out with the same kinda hype and did really impressive numbers in the year he released,i know sales are a lot lower now so its not fair to directly compare.It is possible to sell huge your debut and considering Drake has had a lot of exposure and already had an ep on billboard he should of done better.
