Kendrick Lamar’s Latest Album ‘Damn” Goes Double Platinum
Kendrick Lamar can add another accolade to his long list of achievements as his forth studio album DAMN. has reached double platinum status. The album was released back in April, and in just three months time he’s moved 2 million units. Amazing!
Though it was official on July 10, 2017, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) took to Twitter on Thursday to make an official announcement that the “Humble” rapper was certifiably double platinum.

DAMN. originally entered into number 1 on the Billboard 200 Chart after it was released, moving 603,000 copies in just the first week. By May, DAMN. was already certified platinum. So much that he beat out Drake’s later album More Life. Right now K. Dot’s latest project is the highest-selling album of 2017 so far.
Lamar is currently in the beginning dates of his “The DAMN. Tour” along with Travis Scott, and D.R.A.M. The tour kicked off on Wednesday night, July 12 in Arizona, and the crowd was reportedly turned up to the max.
Major congrats go out to Kung Fu Kenny!
