Drake has a chance to land at number one on the "Billboard 200" with "For All the Dogs: Scary Hours Edition."

Drake's Scary Hours 3, which he released as a deluxe version of For All The Dogs on Friday, is expected to move 110-130k copies in the first seven days, according to Hits Daily Double. Notably, this figure marks the entirety of For All the Dogs: Scary Hours Edition and the new songs alone likely count for a smaller fraction of the total tally.

With that figure, Drake will have a chance to return to the number 1 spot on the Billboard 200. He'll be competing with Taylor Swift’s 1989 (Taylor’s Version) and Dolly Parton’s Rockstar, which are both projected to fall in a similar range for sales. On the new project, Drake references competing with Swift on the song, "Red Button." He raps: “Taylor Swift the only n***a I ever rated/Only one could make me drop the album just a little later/Rest of y’all I treat you like you never made it/Leave your label devastated even when you pad the stats period I never hated.”

They aren't the only notable lyrics on the project. With "Stories About My Brother," Drake calls out Joe Budden amid their ongoing feud. He raps: “And n***as bound to slip eventually, like they sent permission/Imagine us getting our validation from a ex-musician searching for recognition/Same story every time, they heckling, repetition/I’m top of the mountain, these n***as still down at base camp, they planning they expedition.”

Additionally, Drake teams up with J. Cole for a new song on the deluxe version of For All The Dogs. That collaboration comes as the two are set to embark on a tour together in January. Be on the lookout for further updates on Drake on HotNewHipHop.
