‘Views’ is the fourth studio album of Canadian rapper and recording artist, Drake. It was released on April 29, 2016, by OVO Sound, Young Money Entertainment, Cash Money Records and Boy Better Know.
It included already released singles like, “Hotline Bling”, “One Dance” and “Pop Style”. The album has been performing spectacularly commercially and is projected to do even better.
Drake suggested that he had sold somewhere around 630,000 equivalent units of VIEWS within the first night of its release. While the number seems hard to believe, Hits Daily Double’s projections seem to line up with the OVO rapper’s report, suggesting he is due to sell 1 million album equivalent units, and 1.2 million with streaming numbers included.
According to the source, Drake will become the third artist to eclipse 100 million streams in a week, as he is projected to earn over 150 million streams of the project, surpassing Beyonce’s numbers in the process. A recent report also suggested that previous “Hotline Bling” streams would contribute to this number.
Some of these projections may not pan out exactly as expected. One thing is for sure though. This album is going to be a massive success
