The heavily anticipated debut album of Canadian star has finally hit the sales charts.

There has been a lot of controversy and opinions as to how he went about everything. Many say he should have dropped his album long ago, his buzzed died down, a month ago it got leaked, and he even rejected the option of moving up his album released date after the leak by saying he wasn’t worried.

After all that is said and done, after a week of sales Drake sold 447,000 records and grabbed the #1 spot on the charts.

Sade and Lady Antebellum are the only artists this year with similar numbers.
