Drizzy’s surprise LP If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late has crossed the million mark making it the first album to go platinum in 2015.
Per Nielsen Soundscan, If You’re Reading This, which boasts records such as “Energy” and “10 Bandz,” sold 8,000 copies the week ending August 7, bringing the album’s sales total to 1,000,007.
The 6 God released the 17-tack record February 12 through Young Money/Cash Money/Republic, which debuted at number one making the record his fourth album to go platinum.
Congrats to Drizzy.
