Drake just scored the first platinum-selling album released this year with “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.”

The surprise mixtape went platinum this week when sales surpassed the million mark. According to Billboard, “Too Late” has sold 1.007 million units since it was released in February.

The 6 God proved there was still power in the mixtape when it debuted at #1 on Billboard after selling 495,000 copies in just three days – and broke Spotify’s record, previously held by his “Nothing Was The Same” LP.

Drizzy aside, Taylor Swift is the only other artist to shift a million copies in the US this year with her blockbuster record “1989,” which was released in October 2014.

When will Meek?
