It’s also the second straight chart-topping bow by a Jewish rapper, following this week’s surprise #1 debut by Mac Miller.
DRAKE SET TO TAKE THE CAKE
YM/CM/Universal Republic Rapper’s Delayed Sophomore Album Will Bow with Close to 700k
Drake’s ready to Take Care of business.

The rapper, whose sophomore YM/CM/Universal Republic album, Take Care, is the follow-up to last year’s successful bow, Thank Me Later, will debut at #1 with a sales total between 675-725k.

That will make it the third-best bow of the year, after Lady Gaga’s 1.1 million selling Born This Way and his labelmate Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV, which also clocked in slightly over a million on HITS’ Album sales chart.

It’s also the second straight chart-topping bow by a Jewish rapper, following this week’s surprise #1 debut by Mac Miller. Can an M.O.T. reunion be far behind?

The next highest debut will be Columbia’s Glee Christmas, Vol. 2 album, which arrives to sales of around 65-70k, while Decca recording artist Andrea Bocelli’s Concerto: One Night in Central Park live CD should do in the 60-65k area.

Glassnote Records latest discovery, Community star Donald Glover’s hip-hop persona Childish Gambino’s debut album Camp will open with a very impressive 45-50k.

Finally, Trill/Fontana hip-hop artist Baton Rouge rapper Webbie’s third installment of the Savage Life series, is set to bow with 24-27k.

Album sales were up 4% vs. last week, up 2% vs. same week last year and up 3% year to date.

Track sales were up 9% vs. last week, up 7% vs. same week last year and up 1-% year to date.

TEA (Track Equivalent Album) sales were up 5% vs. last week, up 3% vs. same week last year and up 5% year to date. 

Take that, Spotify haters.
