Views broke a number of records during its debut week. Not only was it Drake’s high sales ever, but it was the highest week of sales from a male artist since Justin Timberlake’s project The 20/20 Experience dropped in 2013.

The rapper’s album has also been certified platinum, a feat that only four other Hip-Hop albums were able to achieve in their opening weeks.
