Drake Becomes First Artist With Platinum Album In 2015
Drake has become the first artist in 2015 to earn a platinum-selling album.
Taylor Swift's 1989 is the only other album to sell a million copies this year. However, it was released in October 2014 and has sold 5.124 million units to date.
Drizzy's tape is his fourth platinum album, following Nothing Was the Same (1.72 million), Take Care (2.26 million) and Thank Me Later (1.8 million).
If You're Reading This It's Too Late sold 535,000 copies in its first week, and debuted atop the Billboard 200.
Drake took to Instagram to thank his fans for their support, while teasing his next album, Views From the 6. "Platinum off the tape. Views up next. Thank you once again," he wrote.
