News: Drake's Debut #1

It is finally "OVER!!" All the talk about the Toronto Rapper, Drake, has finally come to a head with the release of his first album "Thank Me Later" debuting number 1 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart. He has officially earned the the best week numbers for an Hip Hop Artist in 2010.

In one week he moved 447,000 copies off the strength of his first two singles "Over" and "Find Your Love" making major noise.

A strong debut, considering the last albums to reach similar sales were Sade's "Soldier of Love" and Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now," both of which sold over 450,000 copies as well (Sade sold over 500,000 first week), Drake's "Thank Me Later" tops recent releases from Ludacris, Usher, and Christina Aguilera.
