Drake “Honestly, Nevermind” Debuts At No. 1 After Selling 210K Copies In It’s First Week Of Release
Drake’s albums have always debuted at number one, and his most recent release, Honestly, Nevermind, is no exception. Champagne Papi was predicted to reach No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart last weekend, and this past weekend, it actually did.
Despite the criticism and outrage the father of one had upon the publication of his work, a tweet from @chartdata indicated that during its first week out, the nearly featureless record sold 210K equivalent album copies (it was initially predicted to move anywhere from that to 230K).
Other notable performances included those by Harry Styles with his new Harry’s House project (78K), San Benito (121K), and BTS on their final joint album before going on sabbatical to concentrate on solo projects (77K).
HipHopDX points out that even though the Canadian won again, his sales of Honestly, Nevermind were far lower than those of 2021’s Certified Lover Boy, which brought in a respectable 613K.
The same was true of Chris Brown; however, Breezy’s first week sales forecasts are far lower than what he made when releasing Indigo years ago, and it has been highlighted that he isn’t likely to launch at number one this time around.
