Drake’s Thank Me Later goes Platinum in the US [News]

Toronto, ON – Late last night and early into the morning, via tools like Twitter, Blackberry Messenger and Facebook, statements were being released from Drake and his camp indicating that Thank Me Later had been certified Platinum. More than 5 weeks after the album’s release it remains in the top tier of Billboard’s Top 200. Drake himself took to Twitter to thank his fans: “Thank you to everyone who allowed us to go platinum on a debut album! WOW”. We weren’t able to find any official statements from the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) about the certification but they did post a Drake related news release on July 19th. It read: “The Canadian R&B singer took his debut album So Far Gone (Universal Motown, 2009) Gold and earned three premiere Gold song nods for “Over,” “I’m Going In” and “Best I Ever Had,” the final of which also went Platinum. Look for more certs to come from Drake’s latest and greatest Thank Me Later.” Congrats to Drake!
