Kendrick Lamar’s critically acclaimed fourth studio album, DAMN., has been out less than a month, but is already certified platinum, according to a tweet from Interscope Records. The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) deems an album platinum after it has sold over one million units. The 14-track project has topped the Billboard 200 charts for the past two weeks.

The Compton MC released the album on April 14 after a full week of anticipation. Many fans speculated K.Dot was dropping a new project on April 7 after he mentioned the date at the end of “The Heart Pt. 4,” but they were clearly crushed when it turned out to be simply another announcement.
With songs like “HUMBLE.,” the much-discussed “DUCKWORTH.” and album highlight “DNA.,” DAMN. was apparently exactly what the Hip Hop landscape was lacking, and now has the sales to prove it. Check out the tweet above and find DAMN. here.
