Might be a while before “What A Time To Be Alive” goes platinum.

After selling 334,000 pure albums in week one, Drake and Future’s WATTBA reportedly sold 65,000 albums in week 2, an 81% decline in sales. Looks like it’s gonna be a while before it goes platinum…

While it is typical for albums to experience steep drop offs in week two sales, WATTBA’s drop off ranks among the most precipitous in recent rap history. Here are some other albums that dropped off extra hard week two:

Mac Miller’s Blue Slide Park (83% –  144,000 to 25,000)
Kanye West’sYeezus (80% – 327,000 to 65,000)
Jay Z’s Kingdom Come (79% – 680,000 to 140,000)
Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (78% – 496,000 to 108,000).

WATTBA clocked in at number two in the charts behind Fetty Wap, and it is still doing well in the streaming department. Drake brought out Future during his raucous headlining set at Austin City Limits over the weekend, they’re not about to let a precipitous drop in album sales stop them from enjoying the ride.
