Drake‘s Certified Lover Boy is looking to dethrone Kanye West‘s DONDA for the biggest debut week of 2021 so far.
According to HITS Daily Double, Drizzy’s CLB is projected to open with a total of 575,000 to 625,000 in equivalent album units with 45,000 to 55,000 in album sales. If forecasts are correct, the album will effectively surpass DONDA’s short-lived reign with 309,000 units and will be the biggest debut week since Taylor Swift’s folklore in July 2020.
Certified Lover Boy also recently broke a series of Apple Music records; the album overtook Scorpion as the biggest album debut in the streaming service’s history, is the most-streamed album in less than 24 hours and hit No. 1 on Apple Music’s Top Albums charts in 145 countries on the first day of its release.
