Drake is such a hot artist that one of his albums is selling even though he didn’t release it.
An unauthorized album, “The Girls Love Drake,” which features selections from the Toronto rapper’s mixtape “So Far Gone” and other tracks, was released May 28th by a label called Canadian Money Entertainment and distributed by the Independent Online Distribution Alliance (IODA) on iTunes, Rhapsody and Amazon.
Drake’s camp, which is still trying to clear the samples on “So Far Gone” and his two other mixtapes in hopes of selling them in stores, says it didn’t authorize the release.
If it hadn’t been disqualified on the grounds that it wasn’t confirmed as being an official album, “The Girls Love Drake” would have debuted this week at No. 101 on the Billboard 200, No. 16 on the Digital Albums chart and No. 1 on the Heatseekers tally. “Best I Ever Had” and “Every Girl” (credited to Young Money), two tracks on the mixtape that have previously charted, appear on this week’s Hot Digital Songs chart thanks to downloads of “The Girls Love Drake.” Additionally, “Best I Ever Had” jumps 60-18 on the Billboard 200, while “Every Girl” leaps 75-35, although chart experts predict they will both drop again once the unofficial album is no longer available.
Damn you know you on fire when cats start making fake albums before you can even make a debut, Bootlegin 2.0.
