Ahead of its physical release, Drake’s widely bumped surprise album If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late has officially gone platinum.
ThisIsWalder reports that between streams and digital purchases, the 6 God’s album has moved 1,011,041 copies. Full Spotify streams now count toward record sales, by the way. The album/mixtape dropped out of the blue a la Beyoncé, and debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, with 14 of its 17 tracks charting on the Billboard Hot 100 simultaneously, a record previously only held by The Beatles.
The project is getting a traditional physical CD release on April 21, with two bonus tracks to entice Drizzy’s fans, the previously released “How Bout Now” and the unheard “My Side.” Views From The 6 may or may not be coming out this year, but between this and Drake’s festival tour this summer, including OVO Fest, fans will have plenty to drool over. Listen to “How Bout Now” above.
