Started from the Bottom, Now Drake's Got His Third Number One Album
This is both Drake's third album and his third number one debut, giving him a perfect record. However, at 658,000, Nothing Was the Same is his biggest debut yet. It is also the biggest week for a rap album since Lil Wayne's Tha Carter IV in 2011.
The success of Nothing Was the Same is especially impressive, considering the album leaked online a week before it was released.
