Lowkey worrying that with these new rules, superstars who are able to consistently keep up with that level are becoming so few and far between. If Drake can't crack 250k as the resident streaming king, then how are newer artists who are supposed to be bringing in a new generation expected to break into the market with such low sales in comparison to before :rip:

I'm no Drake fan, so I have no reason to defend him or make excuses. :rip:

 

Point is, at the end of the day over 200k is a great number (these days). No one was expecting a new album from him and, quite frankly, I don't think anyone was really wanting a new album from him right now anyways.

 

They're not great numbers but they're also not terrible.  

it's terrible lol no matter how you spin it. literally his lowest first week ever. it's gonna do less than his collection of demos from 2020:deadbanana4:

 

its obvious the reason its tanking is because everyone hates it and not because no one wants a new album from drake. he's literally been doing yearly releases for forever and it's never bothered anyone

i think his core audience was not very pleased with this latest record cause its more house instead of hip hop  which also helped the sudden drop of numbers

Tay?

Nah. Artists who are established legacy acts with strong physical sales have been doing fine if they have physical shipments ready for their debut week. The issue is that there’s not that many of those artists in the first place, and not all of them care to wait for vinyls to be pressed before they release.

 

Beyoncé is the next artist to watch - could go either way. She’s at least apparently going to have physical albums ready to ship for her first week.

What new rules? I know Billboard took steps to decrease chart manipulation through bulk buying, but I can’t imagine Drake stans are doing that and it would affect him. Did Billboard make other changes too? I’m out of the loop

I have to agree. I keep seeing people on my timeline disappointed with the album so I’m not surprised at these numbers. They are still good tho.

it has nothing to do with the new rules. neither kendrick nor drake ever used bundles and drake literally just did 600k under the new rules

 

and let's not act like harry didn't just do 520k first week

He came back last year and raps about why he retired in the first place on the new album. He was depressed and contemplating s**c*de shortly after his su*c*de prevention song blew up. He also went into detail about how him rapping about mental health and what was actually going on in his life got backlash from people and that made him not want to rap at the time :chick3: He seems to be in a much better place though, especially since becoming a father!

Kendrick definitely had bundles with DAMN. I purchased the one that came with the digital album, grey t-shirt and signed red vinyl.

for a surprise album with a sound that’s way different that what he normally puts out (and has been getting panned by his fans) i feel like that’s a pretty good number
