Drake’s ‘Certified Lover Boy’ debuts at No.1 with highest first-week sales in 2021


Billboard reports that Drake’s sixth studio album ‘Certified Lover Boy’ has secured the best first week sales of 2021 with 613,000 units sold.

‘Certified Lover Boy’ is Drake’s 10th No. 1 album and the biggest album debut since Taylor Swift’s ‘folklore’ debuted with 846,000 units in August 2020. Certified Lover Boy bumped the previous No. 1 album, Donda by Kanye West, down one spot to No. 2. Donda moved 309,000 equivalent album units in its first week, which made it the biggest debut of 2021, until now. It appears that Drake’s album nearly doubled the sales of Donda’s debut.
