Lil Wayne Says Drake’s First Week Sales Aren’t Important
With Drake’s sophomore LP projected to sell upwards of 700k copies in its first week, the YMCMB camp is already expecting big numbers.
“As far as expectations, we don’t have those around here. Expectations are a weakness in the music business because if you expect anything, 10 times out of 10 it’s not gonna happen, so we don’t have expectations around here,”
However, Drizzy;’s actual sales don’t seem that important to Wayne but he’s confident in Drake’s abilities.
“What we do expect is … to work very hard and we expect people to respect our hard work and our effort,” Weezy continued. “Now as far going to buy the album, as far as going to get 750,000 copies, that’s never a problem with us; that’s never important to us,” Weezy continued. “We just want to get a perfect point across, a swell opinion across,” he said. “We want our opinion to be different from everybody else’s opinion, but so different and so great that everybody else joins that opinion. And if we get that done with the album, mission accomplished.” (via MTV)
Drake’s official first week numbers will be confirmed tomorrow by Billboard.
