Can Drake score a number one album with a mixtape ten years after it was released?
Probably not, but it could be close.
Hits Daily Double is projecting that So Far Gone, Drake's breakthrough mixtape, will do between 40 and 50K this week, which is the first week it's ever been available on streaming services like Spotify.
That should be roughly the same as the week's other big debut, Florida Georgia Line's Can't Say I Aint Country.
However, Ariana Grande's album Thank U, Next did 355K last week in its first week. While we don't have a projection on its second week yet, it will likely by more than 50K.
