Drake's 'Take Care' album debuts at No.1 on BillBoard with 631,000 copies


   As expected, Drake nets the third-largest sales week of 2011 for an album, as "Take Care" debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, selling 631,000 copies in its first week according to Nielsen SoundScan. 

Last week industry sources pegged the set's start around 675,000 to 700,000 which makes the copies sold  slightly smaller number than initially expected.

    Still, the only two sets to sell more in a week this year were Lady Gaga's "Born This Way"  (1.1 million) and Lil Wayne's "Tha Carter IV" (964,000).
 "Take care " is Drake's second chart-topper, following 2010's "Thank Me Later," which launched with 447,000.
