Drake has been certified platinum for ‘Scorpion’ by the Recording Industry Association of America.
According to XXL, the album hit the status on its release date, June 29, and that means that he moved over a million units in under 24 hours, breaking the single-day record for most streams, as well as the single-week record.
He’s also become RIAA’s most successful digital singles artist, as the new album supercharged some of his older catalogs.
However, the promotional tactics left some people annoyed, as Drake’s photo was featured on a streaming platform on almost every playlist, even if his SONG wasn’t on the said playlist. It received a lot of backlash, but let’s face it: the dude’s got the money for it.
