The 'Hold On, We're Going Home' hitmaker released his third album on September 24 and it didn't take long for the highly-anticipated record, which suffered various delays, to make a statement on the charts as 'Nothing Was The Same' was predicted to outsell Kanye West's 'Yeezus,' which has shifted 541,000 units, just a couple of days after it was made available.

Nielsen SoundScan reports that 'NWTS' has sold 658,000 copies in just one week, putting it at number one on the Billboard charts ahead of the likes of Kings of Leon and 'Mechanical Bull' which trails miles behind after shifting 110,000 copies and Cher's 'Closer To The Truth.'
Drake, 25, is no stranger to enjoying success on the Billboards with his debut record 'Thank Me Later' topping the charts in 2010 and the follow-up, 2011's smash hit 'Take Care' also achieving the same feat.

'NWTS' features the hit singles 'Started From The Bottom' and 'Hold On, We're Going Home' and a collaboration with Jay Z on 'Pound Cake.'
The album just missed out on the top spot in the UK after peaking at number two and it looks unlikely it will jump up one place next week as Justin Timberlake is expected to score a number one with 'The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2.'
