Drake Says He Sold 630,000 Copies of ‘Views’ In One Night [VIDEO]
Drake mania has reached a fever pitch. And if the sales figures hold up, the Toronto rhymer might be the biggest-selling rap star of 2016. According to Drizzy, his latest album, Views, sold a whopping 630,000 copies in one day.
The OVO Sound leader made a surprise appearance at Toronto’s Air Canada Center (aka Jurassic Park), where fans were watching Game 6 between the Raptors and the Indiana Pacers, to perform a quick set. According to reports, Drake performed “Energy” for the crowd. Afterward, he delivered some exciting news.
“I got a text message that we sold like 630,000 something records in one night,” he said. “That’s the first time I’ve ever done that s---.”
As of now, Drake's Views will remain an iTunes/Apple Music exclusive for one week before hitting other digital platforms, which will most likely boost his sales even more.
Even Justin Bieber - without dreadlocks - made an appearance to congratulate Drake on his album release.
Overall, it was a celebratory night for the 6 God. “I love everybody in this city,” he told the crowd. “I love this city. I’ll die for this city.”
