Drake’s ‘Views’ Becomes First 2016 Album To Reach Triple Platinum Status


(AllHipHop News) Drake has collected another platinum plaque. His recent album Views is now certified triple platinum.

A majority of those three million units came from streaming numbers. As of July, Views actually sold around 1.3 million copies.

With the shifting of music consumption to a more streaming based model, reaching 3x plat is still a major accomplishment. In fact, Views is the first album released this year to achieve that status.

Drake’s previous album Nothing Was The Same has been certified 3x platinum and Take Care is 4x platinum. His “mixtape” If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late currently sits at 2x platinum.

Views is up for Album Of The Year at the 2016 BET Hip-Hop Awards. The LP is a chart and sales smash, but it is also the worst reviewed project of Drake’s career.
