Future and Drake – two of the industries biggest stars right now – have a collaborative mixtape project called What A Time To Be Alive. And at first predictions had the project selling 500,000 units in its first week!
But now that number has dropped according to HitsDailyDouble – the website projects the mixtape to sell between 340,000-360,000 copies.
Still pretty good right? That might not be true since drizzy’s last project – If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late – moved almost the full 500k (495,000 units). But for Future – whose last mixtape DS2 sold 126,000 units – it’s a pretty nice opening week.
Some say that it’s the mixed reviews coming out about the album that have caused projections to drop.
Here’s what AllHipHop says:
The initial expectations were based on early sales as die-hard fans purchased the tape off iTunes as soon as it was released, but more casual listeners may have chosen not to purchase the project.
Either way, if they do happen to move that many units – it should still have them sitting on top in the #1 spot.
