Billboard reports that, after selling 8,000 copies last week, ‘If You’re Reading This…’ has now sold 1.007 milllion units in the US.

Celebrating, Drake posted a picture on Instagram alongside the comment: “Platinum off the tape. Views up next.” Views is a reference to ‘Views From The 6’, the title of Drake’s new album that is tentatively scheduled for release this year.
