Scorpion Went Platinum The Day It Was Released
According to the RIAA website, the entire Scorpion album has officially gone platinum. While the numbers on the album were already massive, it’s still surprising that it happened this quickly.
The initial projections for Drake’s first week sales only estimated a high of 920k
units sold, not quite enough to reach platinum certification.
However, it gets better. On the site, the album is listed as having been certified on June 29th, 2018; aka, the exact day the album was released.
