Young Money Boss Talks Drake Not Selling A Milli

Posted By on August 31, 2010

     Cortez Bryant, Young Money's CEO and Lil Wayne's manager, recently talked about why he think's Drake highly-anticipated debut "Thank Me Later" album not selling over a million copies in it's first-week in stores last June. Bryant think's Drizzy did not have a single that got into the pop category.

     "The first week was great but [Drake] still need that big smash pop hit like we had with [Lil] Wayne's 'Lollipop,'" Bryant said in an interview. "Wayne got his million because he had that urban side and he crossed over to that pop demographic. I believe Drake would've got those million sales if we would've had that pop record. I don't think 'Fancy' is that pop record either…It'll go so far, but when we drop 'Show Me A Good Time' in September — that has the potential to be that big record."
