Rapper's record sits ahead of Taylor Swift's '1989' and Kendrick Lamar's 'To Pimp A Butterfly'
Drake‘s ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’ has become 2015’s top selling digital album.
Vibe reports that the record – which was surprise released in February – has sold 951,000 copies digitally, putting it ahead of Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’, Kendrick Lamar’s ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’ and The Weeknd’s ‘Beauty Behind The Madness’.
This year has also seen Drake released a joint album with Future. ‘What A Time To Be Alive’ was debuted by the Canadian last month on his OVO Sound Radio show on Apple’s Beats 1.
“When you get around Future it’s like a vortex,” Drake said while presenting OVO Sound Radio. He went on to explain that he originally went to Future’s hometown of Atlanta to do “a few songs” but the collaboration grew into something more considerable. “It’s a little soundtrack for the people who need it right now,” Drake added.
Drake and Future toured the US together earlier this year. Future’s most recent LP, ‘DS2’, which was released in July, featured Drake on ‘Where Ya At’. Meanwhile, Drake is believed to be working on new studio album ‘Views From The 6’, having already released solo mixtape ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’ earlier in 2015.
