Drake has the music industry wrapped around his little finger. The Toronto-born recording artist has adopted his latest nickname, "The Decade," after comfortably dominating the charts for the last ten years. Even though some fans aren't necessarily vibing with his latest album, Certified Lover Boy, it's abundantly clear that Drake still commands the world's attention every time he drops. Case in point, his second-week sales projections are looking stronger than most artists' first-week numbers.
After posting a legendary first week of sales with over 704,000 equivalent album units moved of Certified Lover Boy, Drake appears to be nearing platinum status after only two weeks, with his second-week numbers looking pretty sharp.
According to HitsDailyDouble, Drake is expecting to move 220,000 copies of his new album during its second week out.
