Drake surprised his loyal fans when he released his new mixtape “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late,” and the album is getting plenty of buzz since he clapped back at Tyga in a track and Tyga responded on Twitter.
Interestingly enough, it really does appear Drake pulled a Beyonce since his sales should bring the album to gold status by the weekend alone.

We didn’t see this coming. Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late (Young Money/Cash Money/Republic) will debut at #1 on the HITS Album and SPS charts next week, spoiling what looked less than 24 hours ago like a slam dunk for the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack—but the marketshare goes to the same place, so Republic can’t complain. What’s more, the surprise mixtape could see first-weekend sales of 500k.
