Drake lands at no. 1 on the Billboard 200 charts — moving 631,000 copies of Take Care!
As expected, Drake nets the third-largest sales week of 2011 for an album, as “Take Care” debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, selling 631,000 copies in its first week according to Nielsen SoundScan.
The only two sets to sell more in a week this year were Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” debut (1.1 million) and Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter IV” start (964,000).
“Take Care” is Drake’s second chart-topper, following 2010’s “Thank Me Later,” which launched with 447,000. -via Billboard
