    This past week the Drake frenzy surrounding Nothing Was The Same came to a peak when the actual first week sales were released. The rapper's album had the best opening week of this year second to Justin Timberlake's come back effort-- he even topped Jay Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail first week sales. Nonetheless, his reach hasn't quite made the 1 million mark yet, although, if he continues on this path, it could very well happen on his next effort.

    This past week The Weeknd dominated the charts, although he was outshone only by country star Keith Urban. The race between the country star and r'n'b star was a close one, with 3,000 units making the difference for the #1 spot on the Billboard 200. The race was so close, in fact, that Drizzy and The Weeknd prematurely celebrated, when Drake congratulated his friend at his recent L.A. show.

    The Def Jam rapper explained that B.O.A.T.S II: #METime would be the ultimate record to self-reflect to, or gain some ‘me time’ as 2 Chainz calls it. Self-indulgent it certainly is, and we would expect nothing less from 2 Chainz, considering his swag and confidence.

    There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific bars are often overlooked (with the exception of anything ever uttered by Drake). This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions. Keep in mind, these are the most noteworthy lyrics of the week, not necessarily the best. Also, it's hard to get everything right - if you notice any errors, don't hesitate to let us know in the comments section. Lines we're not quite sure about will be bolded.
