Drake dropped to the #2 spot with Nothing Was the Same, selling 148,000 the second week around. Also to debut this week is Nelly with his new album, N.O., entering the chart at #14 and selling only 15,000 copies, marking the lowest debut of his career. Pretty sure he’s not concerned though, pulling in those Cheerio endorsement dollars!
