At this point, it’s a matter of when and not if Drake will secure a plaque. A quick gander at the man’s RIAA page features too many titles to count, a testament to his appeal as a commercial juggernaut — in fact, when he does end up delivering his upcoming album Certified Lover Boy, expect a fair number of the project’s tracks to yield results both gold and platinum in color. Now, mere days removed from the release of his lead single “Laugh Now Cry Later” featuring Lil Durk, Drake has once again brought home a new plaque for his collection.
As confirmed by Our Generation Music, Drizzy’s latest has officially hit gold, which means it has sold over five-hundred thousand album-equivalent units. For those who find it difficult to track what those actually are, it equates to fifteen-hundred streams. Given that the track continues to earn acclaim, thanks in large part to a massively budgeted and athlete-heavy music video, don’t be surprised to see this one’s climb steadily rise as the countdown to Certified Lover Boy kicks off.
