  • soufdallas

    1,000,000.00 records is platinum……….how can you be certified platinum with only 840,000 records sold?? is RIAA.com certifying it?

  • roc

    congrats to drake. what does the amount of time have to do with it matter? The fact his he’s getting there. And these numbers don’t even account for digital sales.

    People can’t ever just acknowledge people for their accomplishments

  • roc

    soufdallas: the industry certifies albums by how many are shipped to stores. So they’ve shipped 1mill

  • Roc

    soufdallas: the industry certifies albums by the number of albums shipped to stores. Thats how they do it. its stupid but been like that forever.

    Another thing the industry don’t do is combine the physical sales with the digital sales. So all these first week numbers don’t include ITunes and such.

  • LYRICS

    who’da thunk it!!!????? i’m actually shock’d!!!

  • April

    Ya’ll need to stop hating on Drake! Numbers don’t lie…you might not like him but plenty of others do.

  • nana

    And how many bootleg copies were sold????

  • Allie

    Congrats drake

  • so what? he's a jew

    …and we all know jews run things and share with their own. black people, stop giving your money to those crooks.

  • Please

    Yeah how many copies did Baby buy? Show me those numbers. You would be surpised at “behind the scenes” of some of these ummmm labels.

    I know for a fact they buy their own music to boost the numbers. To each his her own…F- Aubrey.

  • whatever

    To the person that said stop hating, I’m sure there is an artist you don’t like. According to your mentality, that makes you a hater too. Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

  • TeLl iT LikE it TiS

    @ Please: co-sign 3000%…def jam has been doin the same thing since day one. its a numbers game and under a million isnt considered platinum when the other 100,000+ units are still sittin on shelves, so they buy the majority upfront to make the public believe they can sell on their own and that makes them give more support. MONEY AND RELEVANCE!!!

    HATERS!!!!! These numbers don’t even account for digital sales AND the entire album leaked 2 weeks before release. Impressive!!!! A kid from TORONTO took over the HIphop game Love it!!!

    Maybe it’s units sold in stores. Digital downloads would probably make it platinum.
