Scorpion is headed for a massive opening week — but you already knew that.
After breaking one-day records on streaming services with over 300 million streams, Drake’s double album is expected to move 870-920,000 units in its first week.
Of that number, 275-300,000 are traditional album sales.
These numbers would ensure Drake takes the No. 1 on the Billboard 200, earning him the largest debut of 2018 and the biggest first week sales since Taylor Swift’s Reputation in November (1.2 million).
With all the hype, we wouldn’t be surprised if that estimate increases and Drake does closer to 1M.
