Tha Carter V goes platinum less than two months after its release. Lil Wayne’s latest album is eligible for platinum status after selling one million units.
Although the RIAA didn’t officially certify the collection, Tunechi celebrated his milestone on Instagram. “THANK YOU !!” a grateful Weezy told his 10 million followers.
The album spawned the Swizz Beatz-produced hit single, “Uproar”, debuted at No. 1 with 480,000 equivalent album units after its September discharge, and snagged the second-biggest streaming week for an album. (Trailing behind his protege, Drake).
Wayne, who recently took the stage at Travis Scott’s ASTROWORLD Festival and SNL, released a trio of bonus tracks off Tha Carter V with features from Post Malone and Gucci Mane.
