Five weeks after it’s release, Drake‘s “Nothing Was The Same” album is certified platinum.  This marks Drakes third platinum effort following Take Care (2011) and Thank Me Later (2010).  “Nothing Was The Same” moved 968,000 units in the first week and sold an additional 38,000 this past week which pushed it over the one million records sold mark.  Drake’s album is only the second rap album to go platinum in 2013.  He joins none other than Jay Z.  Given the enormous marketing budget behind Jay’s Holy Grail album, this is a testament to Drake as an artist and what he means to the world of hip hop.  Drake, is currently on tour promoting his new album.  Check out the tour dates to see if he’ll be performing at a city near you.
