That didn't take very long.

Less than one month after the highly-acclaimed new album's release, Kendrick Lamar's DAMN. has officially been certified Platinum by the RIAA.

DAMN.'s Platinum certification is Kendrick's eighth certification in total and his third straight Platinum album, following good kid, m.A.A.d city (certified on August 21, 2013) and To Pimp a Butterfly (certified on February 1, 2016).

After earning the highest-selling debut of 2017, DAMN. also becomes the first Platinum-selling rap album released in 2017.

Drake's More Life is also eligible for certification, but the RIAA has not provided confirmation.
