(AllHipHop News) It only took three weeks for Kendrick Lamar’s third major label album to earn a platinum plaque.
The TDE emcee’s DAMN has now totaled over 1 million album units.
Interscope announced the achievement on Twitter by simply posting, “DAMN. is now PLATINUM #TDE.”
Both of Lamar’s previous major label LPs – good kid, m.A.A.d city and To Pimp a Butterfly – earned platinum status.
gkmc took nearly a year to pass the million unit mark, while TPAB was not certified platinum for close to a year after its release as well.
Kendrick’s discography also includes the gold-certified project Section.80.
At the moment, DAMN holds the record for the highest first-week album sales for 2017.
The LP opened with 603,000 sales plus streaming units and added another 238,000 units in week two.
