Drake may have signed another No. 1 album.
According to initial projections shared by HitsDailyDouble, Drizzy‘s Honestly, Nevermind will likely debut at the top of the Billboard 200. Announced just hours before its release on Friday, the project is now expected to grow between 210,000 and 230,000 album equivalent units in its first week. While the numbers are undoubtedly strong, they’re not as impressive as Drake‘s previous studio LP.
The 2021 record Certified Lover Boy debuted at No. 1 with 613,000 units, Scorpion from 2018 debuted at number 1 with 732,000 units, and 2016’s Views and 2013’s Nothing Was the Same debuted at No. 1 with 852,000 and 658,000 copies respectively in their first weeks.
Honestly, Nevermind delivered 14 tracks with production by Gordo, Black Coffee, Kid Masterpiece, Noah “40” Shebib, and more. The only credited guest artist was 21 Savage, who assisted on album closer “Jimmy Cooks.” Other tracks include “Falling Back,” “Tie That Binds,” “Calling My Name,” “Flight’s Booked,” and “Down Hill,” all of which find Drake diving head first into dance music.
“It’s all good if you don’t get it yet,” Drake said in the clip as “Calling My Name” played in the background. “That’s what we do! We wait for you to catch up. We in here, though, we caught up already. On to the next. My goodness!”
