Why drake eas is decreasing everyday?


could anyone tell me which of these albums they estimate are the biggest in total cspc?

  1. the Notorious BIG- life after death
  2. Puff Daddy- No Way Out
  3. Usher- My Way

I’m pretty sure Life After Dearh has sold the least in original units but it has much stronger streaming and I assume digital sales, in addition to Notorious BIG having more compilations than the other two


Puff Daddy for sure, he sold way more at the time. The other two albums sold about the same so Usher would be #3 in terms of cspc.


Drake is at 102m eas

Ed Sheeran himself

and where is Chris Brown? You swear ong and Lorde sold more than him?


they haven’t studied him yet 🙄 and they probably won’t for a while because there’s a lot more successful acts who debuted in his era that have sold more anyway like kanye west, nevermind older artist that have sold way more and newer artists that a growing more rapidly
