Kendrick Lamar’s ‘DAMN.’ Has Gone Platinum
In its first two weeks, Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. sold 606,000 and 238,000 copies, respectively, making it the biggest-selling album of 2017 so far.
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.
