Chance The Rapper's latest project Acid Rap, has managed to reach No. 26 on the Hitseekers chart, which comes as a surprise given that the mixtape is available as a free download. According to Billboard, the tape was "available for physical purchase on Amazon and other retailers via the label MTC, distributed by Houston, Texas' 1Stop," without the aid of Chance's Management. These vendors managed to sell a total of 800 copies of Acid Rap.
Chance, however, is not alone in this feat. PARTYNEXTDOOR's mixtape charted No. 6 on Hitseekers despite also being free. The retail version of his self-titled release sold 1,600 copies.
Drake just tweeted the mixtape of the year just dropped and he's referring to his OVO artist PARTYNEXTDOOR's self-titled debut. You heard "Over Here" featuring Drizzy last weekend, and only a couple of previews leading up to now, but above is the full project for free streaming. You can download it with a purchase over on iTunes. EDIT: Looks like you can grab it for FREE straight from the Soundcloud, or now on our Mixtapes page in one .zip file.
What do you all think? I'll definitely give this a couple spins soon too.
1 of the 4 tracks Drake released early this morning: "The Motion" featuring Sampha
While we were sleeping, Drake decided to shake things up in the world of new music by releasing FOUR new tracks AND announcing the release date to his hotly anticipated album, Nothing Was The Same. September 17th, he tweets. The original plan was summer but we'll have to wait a little longer now for the album. No big deal if Drake drops four tracks out of nowhere every now and then.
Jodeci was up late and put them up in the Songs page, ironically starting with the "Jodeci Freestyle" featuring J. Cole, but ICYMI here's the rundown below. "The Motion" is my favorite of the four and it looks like that'll be the one album track of this batch. Very solid start, if that's indeed the case.
Drake took to his instagram today to reveal the release date for the debut project from his OVO artist, PARTYNEXTDOOR. July 1st. I'm intrigued to hear more after the first couple of releases; here's "Wus Good/Curios" brought back below.
This is the second release from Drake's OVO artist, PARTYNEXTDOOR. "Wus Good/Curious" is a R&B cut for the bedroom and reminds me of a hybrid of Drake and The Weeknd. No where near the high-pitch of the latter, but the song's content sounds more like somethin Weeknd would do and delivery wise, it's like Drake with autotune. Not that these close comparisons are bad, but that's what does come to mind. It certainly sounds good and I think Drake fans will also gravitate towards PARTYNEXTDOOR.
