Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Damn’ goes platinum less than a month after being released

PLATINUM STATUS: Kendrick Lamar

KENDRICK LAMAR’S album, Damn, has officially gone platinum less than a month after being released.

Released on April 14, Damn is the first LP of 2017 to achieve the feat – J. Cole’s 4 Your Eyez Only, which went platinum last month, was released in December, 2016.

Kendrick’s label, Interscope Records, posted the platinum announcement on social media – which means Damn has earned 1 million equivalent album units – along with a clear message: “Damn. Is now PLATINUM.”

Additionally, every song from the album ended up on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart outselling Drake’s More Life by shifting more than 600,000 units in its first week.

Humble, the lead single from the album, also earned the Compton rapper his first No.1 single.
