When It Comes To Album Sales, Drake Gives Zero F—s
What guy on the planet wouldn’t want to walk a mile in Drake’s shoes? He’s a platinum selling rapper, he’s smashed out Rihanna and he won a Grammy, just to name a few of his personal accomplishments. When you got it like that, you don’t exactly wake up stressed. Even with extremely high expectations and critics, Drake’s not worried about how his new album will perform.
“Best advice I ever got is, no expectations lead to no disappointments. So I have no expectations,” he told MTV. “The numbers, the sales, all that stuff is cool. I’m sure I’ll get into it on the day like, ‘How much did we sell,’ trying to figure it out, but aside from that I’m just excited for people to hear the full body of work.”
Drizzy said he’s been working on the project for about a year and a half and describes the process as “a labor of love.”
Drake’s ultimate goal is for the album to remain relevant. “The whole purpose of the album is for it to last. I think with Take Care, I still hear records from Take Care Now. We’re coming on two years… I just want this album to have that same lasting power.”
Get ready to empty that piggy bank. The album drops on Tuesday, ya’ll!
