Drake Earns 60 New Platinum Certifications, Becoming Highest Certified Digital Singles Artist

To date, Drake has moved 148 million equivalent units as a lead artist.

Drake has a long history of breaking streaming records, but on Friday, the OVO head honcho added RIAA record-breaker to his ever-growing list of achievements, becoming the highest certified digital singles artist in history. 

To date, Drake has moved 148 million equivalent units as a lead artist (so guest features don't count here), a number that was officially reached after his record labels (Young Money and Cash Money) applied for and earned 59 new Platinum and multi-Platinum single certifications. The 60th certification is for Drake's guest feature on BlocBoy JB's now 2x Platinum single "Look Alive," but that number, as mentioned above, didn't factor into the rapper/singer's grand total.

For a complete list of every Drake single to earn a Platinum or multi-Platinum plaque today, you can click over to the RIAA database, but among the highlights are: "God's Plan" reaching 8x Platinum; "One Dance" 7x Platinum; "Hotling Bling" 7x Platinum; "Hold On, We're Going Home" 6x Platinum; "Forever" 6x Platinum; "Started From the Bottom" 5x Platinum; "Jumpman" 5x Platinum; "The Motto" 5x Platinum; "Best I Ever Had" 4x Platinum.
