Drake Nearly Goes Gold In First Week

    The sales reports are in for Drake’s massively hyped Thank Me Later, and the Canadian-MC sold 462,989 copies of the album. That’s a lot of albums in this era, but it should be noted it’s smaller than the million predicted by tons of you in our contest and Lil Wayne. Overall, it was a strong week, with Tom Petty breaking 100,000 copies sold, and Sarah McLachlan selling 91,000 copies of her comeback album. [VV]
