At a time where album sales are consistently slumping, the feat is nearly remarkable as Drake was able to shift 750,000 units, combining sales and streams, in just two days. In just the first 24 hours it was available, VIEWS sold a whopping 575,000 copies. That figure is larger than the entire first-week sales of Beyonce’s Lemonade, which was recently named the number one album in the U.S.

With two days left in the week since VIEWS came out, a 1,000,000+ debut week isn’t out of the question. If he does make it past that magic number, he’ll be the first artist to do so since Adele’s 25 sold an incredible three million copies back in November 2015.
