Drake’s ‘Thank Me Later’ Goes Platinum

After just ten weeks on the charts, Drake‘s acclaimed debut, ‘Thank Me Later,’ has finally gone platinum.

Though the Canadian rap phenom prematurely thanked fans last month for helping him reach the million mark, after adding 20,200 to his grand total of 1,013,700 this past week, his platinum status is now official. Standing high atop the Billboard Top 200 at Number 18, Drake is only the second rapper to sell more than 1 million units this year, after Eminem‘s ‘Recovery,’ which is already 2x platinum.

“Thank you to everyone who allowed us to go platinum on a debut album! WOW,” Drake tweeted back on July 22, when he had only sold 833,100 units.

In the end, Drake is ironically the one doing all the thanking. ‘Thank Me Later’ is in stores now.
