Edit: Still brazy is 84 on metacritic, views is 68...

Because critic/publication opinion doesnt translate to public opinion in the modern era
You can listen to an album yourself instantly and form your own opinion
These publications are irrelevant in 2016

But shouldn't the public opinion be similar to critic even slightly? lol

The answer is simple...

Drake is at the apex of his fame as a person, and Views is his most hyped project to date. It was set up to sell, period. It was never going to not sell.

But it dropped and most people just didn't fuck with it. It was lukewarm, he didn't do much new, he didn't push his game forward much.

It's charting thanks to One Dance and his thotty, underage fanbase that doesn't care about music from a critical standpoint
