According to reports, the 6 God’s latest solo effort sits atop new efforts from music stars Ed Sheeran and Rick Ross‘ LPs.
It shouldn’t surprise you to know that, once again, a Drake release conquers all, but it remains impressive, especially considering that More Life is really more of a mixtape than an album. That said, the YMCMB/Republic set bows at #1 on the HITS Sales Plus Streaming (SPS) Chart with a whopping 505k—the new biggest debut of the year so far. Meanwhile, with 114k, Ed Sheeran maintains triple-digit numbers at #2 and Epic’s Rick Ross, who comes in at #3, scores the week’s second-biggest bow with approximately 100k for Rather You Than Me.

This week, album projections claimed Drake would have an edge on Ross.
Barring any changes, Ross is gearing up for his 10th studio album.
“I mean, since you mentioned it, since it’s the 10th, I’m closing out the 10th with the 10th. My 10th album before I close out my 10th year it will be Port of Miami 2: Born To Kill. First time [announcing it] and it’s only right. Right here.” (103.5 The Beat)
Ross’ protégé Meek Mill has called his new Rather You Than Me album release the best LP currently available.
