Just three weeks after its release, Kendrick Lamar's critically-acclaimed album, DAMN, has gone platinum, with over 1 million sales.

Since its release, DAMN has remained atop the Billboard 200. It debuted at No. 1, selling 603,000 equivalent album units, the largest debut of the year. In its second week, it sold 238,000 equivalent album units (87,000 traditional), and is on pace to top the chart for a third week.

So far, Kendrick's project has spawned a No. 1 single, with the Mike WiLL Made-It-produced "HUMBLE", alongside "DNA", which currently sits at No. 7 on the chart.

DAMN is out now.

Also, Kendrick Lamar is set to kick off a 17-date "DAMN Tour", beginning in Phoenix on July 12.
