 Despite a few naysayers, Drake lived up to the hype of his album Thank Me Later by opening at No. 1 on this week’s Billboard 200. While final numbers won’t be released until Wednesday, HITS Daily Double reports that Drizzy sold around 463,000 copies in his first week, just shy of gold status. He claims the third best debut of the year behind Sade (502,000) and Lady Antebellum (481,000), and also holds the biggest first week for a rapper since his mentor Jay-Z’s The Blueprint 3, which moved 476,000 units in September.

Drake took to Twitter to thank his fans for making him No. 1. “Thank you for the support…thank you for the memories…thank me later,” he wrote.

Check out some flicks of Drake at the Bing Entertainment event last night in West Hollywood yesterday (June 22), where he also performed.
