Canadian rap superstar, Drake surprised everyone Friday, February 13 with the sudden, unexpected release of his new album dubbed "If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late." The 17-song record came out just hours after the rapper released a a short movie titled "Jungle."

Industry sources now project (as of Feb. 14) that the album will likely sell more than 500,000 copies by the end of the tracking week on February 15 -- with a serious chance that number could end up even bigger. On Saturday, February 14, the set was aiming for 400,000.

The effort was released late in the evening on Thursday (Feb. 12) to digital retailers through Young Money/Cash Money/Republic Records. It should easily debut at No. 1 next week's Billboard 200 chart, giving Drake his fourth No. 1 (and fourth consecutive leader to debut atop the list).

The biggest sales frame of the last year was registered by Taylor Swift's 1989, which sold 1.287 million copies, according to Nielsen Music, in its first week (which was actually a full seven days, as the album was released on a Monday)
