Seinfeld Prophesy Comes True: We Love the Drake– 1 Million Units Sold on iTunes in 6 Days


Remember on Seinfeld when the gang keeps talking about their friend, “the Drake”? They keep saying We love the Drake.

Well, apparently everyone loves the Drake. The Canadian born R&B star has sold over 1 million copies of his “Views” album on iTunes in 6 days according to Republic Records. He’s also had 250 million streams. “Views” will be number 1 tomorrow on every chart.

More news: Drake will host the “SNL” season finale on May 14th and be the musical guest. His association with Apple and iTunes did the trick. All those Tidal artists should take note.
