VIEWS has already sold over 820K in The U.S. and Canada alone

Well it’s not too often that you hear of rappers going platinum in the first week anymore but it appears that Drake just may do that. According to BuzzAngleMusic, in just two days, VIEWS has sold over 740K albums in the United States and over 80,000 in Canada. Considering theres a number more days left in the week and these numbers don’t even include the UK or else where in the world, its safe to say VIEWS will be well into the platinum status after the first week.

Has the album lived up to the hype?
