Drake Thrones No.1 With CLB
Congratulations Drake! As expected Drizzy’s highly anticipated CLB (Certified Lover Boy,) lands the number 1 spot on Billboard Top 200.
Not only did the album earn the number 1 spot, but according to Billboard, the album has the biggest week for ANY album in over a year, since the pop singer Taylor Swift’s Folklore earned number 1 on August 8th, 2020 with a total of 846,000 units.
The 9-month delayed album earned a whopping 613,000 equivalent album units in the US.
Breaking the 613,000 units down, 562,000 units are from streaming equivalent album units, 46,000 is from album sales, and 5000 from track equivalent units.
Drake has always had great success in the past, especially in the last decade being all of his full-releases besides Dark Lane Memo Tapes landed a number 1 spot debut.
Donda Moves Down A Spot
That means that CLB takes over Kanye West’s Donda’s No.1 spot, but Kanye didn’t fall too far down the list with the second spot.
This also means Kanye and Drake are tied along with 6 other artists for now when it comes to the number of times they landed in the No.1 spot which is 10.
The two have been going at each other slyly through their music, like a month back in August Drizzy used his verse on Betrayal by Trippie Red to bring up the Atlanta rapper and Kanye came at him on Instagram.
