Drake goes Platinum
Toronto, Canada representative Drake, full name Aubrey Drake Graham is leading the pack in 2015. He has the first platinum selling album of the year with If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late. Drake is the first artist who released a record this calendar year and achieved such an accomplishment. The killer part is that this is Drake’s fourth record in a row that has reached platinum status. This guy is winning when it comes to music and beef. Now days most artist are lucky if they go gold. The music business has shifted immensely, mainly due to streaming and easy online access. People rarely buy full albums unless it’s a release by an elite artist in the pop world, such as Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Eminem and others. Drake has now earned his position among that rare breed of artist who can move units in one of the most volatile eras for album sales. You have to give the man his props.
