Just after less than two months after its release, Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V is now eligible for platinum certification by the RIAA. The Drai’s resident posted the news on his Instagram with a simple ‘thank you’ to everyone that supported:
Tha Carter V has been universally well-received by both fans and critics alike, and is arguably his best project in the past decade. We reported last month on him being the first artist to debut two songs in the top 5 on Billboard’s Hot 100 (“Mona Lisa” and “Don’t Cry”), as well as debuting at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart with an impressive 480k copies moved. His latest catchy single “Uproar” featuring Swizz Beatz has been hitting the airwaves nonstop as well, no doubt helping in TC5‘s numbers. Wayne’s latest release is “Amen” from the stacked Creed II: The Album, produced by Mike WiLL Made-It. From all of us at Drai’s, we want to congratulate Lil Wayne on this incredible achievement!
