Drake Celebrates 'Views' Quadruple Platinum Certification

While 2016 has been a bummer for many, Drake is having a phenomenal year. 

On Monday (Dec. 5), the RIAA announced that the hip-hop superstar's fourth studio album, Views, has been officially been certified quadruple platinum. The honor marks 4 million units sold with 100 streams counting as one certifiable unit. 

Views is Drake's second album to hit the quadruple platinum milestone, following his 2011 sophomore release Take Care. The album was released April 29 and was certified double platinum June 9 and triple platinum on Aug. 3. 

In September, Apple Music announced Views was the streaming service's first ever album to hit 1 billion streams. Last month, the album hit 3 billion streams on Spotify and last week topped its year-end lists as the most streamed artist in the United States and internationally.
