(AllHipHop News) Drake has secured his fourth number one album in America. The Young Money rapper’s retail mixtape If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late will open in the top spot on the Billboard 200 chart.
IYRTITL barely missed hitting gold sales in its opening week. Drizzy’s surprise overnight release accounted for 495,000 digital downloads. With track equivalent albums (NEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA) added in, the tape’s final total comes to 535,000 units.
The success of If You’re Reading This on Spotify contributed to the SEA count. Drake’s first “mixtape” since So Far Gone shattered the streaming service’s debut-week record with 23.6 million streams in just four days.
