Drake Wins the Album He Wanted
Drake took his No. 1 album to the top of the Billboard 200 as Honestly, Nevermind.
The dance-heavy version, which entered streaming services on June 17, just hours after Drake‘s surprise announcement, opened with 204,000 equivalent album units, accounting for 11,000 of album sales.
The 14-track set was the fourth biggest release week for an album this year, with 250.23 million on-demand streams, following Bad Bunny’s Un Verano Sin Ti (356.55 million), Kendrick Lamar‘s Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers (343.02 million) and Future‘s I Never Loved You (283.75 million).
To be honest, Nevermind was a sonic departure from Drake’s previous albums with their dancefloor-ready tracks and received a mixed response from fans. The most-watched segment was the hip-hop-leaning “Jimmy Cooks,” featuring 21 Savages, followed by “Falling Back” (27.05 million) and “Sticky” (26.16 million).
