Drake surprised us last night by releasing an album, although fans were hoping for a free mixtape, it'll still do the trick to hold us over until Views From The 6 is ready.

The 6 God had initially put up a stream for If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late on his Soundcloud, but seemingly thought better of it and took it down thirty minutes later. This left late-night listeners with one option: hit the iTunes link and purchase it. Thus it's not a surprise that Drake is going to be moving weight opening week, with an expected 500,000 units to be sold by the time Sunday hits. That's not even a full week out, and it'll already be gold.

Stay tuned for the official numbers from Billboard some time next week.
