Drake "pulled a Beyonce" and surprised the masses last night when he dropped his "If You're Reading This It's Too Late" mixtape on iTunes out of the blue. While there was word he'd drop a tape before his official album, Views From Tha 6, no one knew when exactly they could expect to hear the new songs.

Apparently, the Toronto spitter made the right decision, as word of mouth and fans' desire for new music has led them to buy the album without knowing what they're getting, with Drake set to sell 500k and go gold in the first weekend of the tape's release. Beyonce's surprise release did incredible numbers as well, selling 600k its first weekend.

Check out pics of Drake above. Have you heard the new mixtape? What do you think? Sound off below.
