When you’re Drake, you don’t need weeks (or months) of album promo to sell 1 MILLION copies. In fact… you don’t even need an album, all it takes is a mixtape. Billboard reports that If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, after pushing an additional 8,000 units last week, is sitting nicely at 1.007 million right now. OFF A MIXTAPE.

The only other album to hit a milli this year is Taylor Swift’s 1989 but it was released in 2014 and has sold over 5 mil to date. It also has received an immense amount of promo and has about 50 singles so far (give or take).

This is Drizzy’s 4th platinum selling album, and it’s safe to say that his next one, Views From The 6 should get up there as well.
