4x Platinum: Drake solidifies his position as hip hop’s king after #VIEWS goes 4x Platinum in six months

Somehow, Drake has managed to climb to the top of all of the “new school” artists. A few of those artists were skilled lyricists, the others were great hitmakers, and some were both. But, Drake was different, he was all of that, plus a great singer, and consistent to boot.

 

Drake dominated the second half of 2015 with “Hotline Bling,” his non-album single. That song did everything but top Billboard Hot 100, but still was 2015’s go-to single. Since then, Drake has scored several number one singles as a lead artist.

Now, Drake has bested himself in a way many probably didn’t think was possible. After a long wait, Drake delivered his album, VIEWS, via Apple Music and the album immediately shot to number one. His album went 4x platinum and social media is buzzing over this.
