Drake is one of the most commercially successful artists of his era. Now heâ€™s adding another impressive accomplishment to his nearly unmatched resume. Last year, he surprised fans by taking a shift into house and dance music on his album Honesty, Nevermind. The album spawned hit songs like â€œSticky,â€ â€œMassive,â€ and the 21 Savage collaboration â€œJimmy Cooks.â€ Despite that, the album was met with mixed reception from fans and was largely disliked by critics.
Regardless of the reception of the album, itâ€™s reached an impressive level of success. The album debuted at the top spot on the Billboard 200 and now just barely a year after its release Honestly, Nevermind has been certified platinum. Fans had a mixed reaction to the achievement with some standing up for the album. â€œmaybe a hot take: only good songs in this tracklist â€“ Intro, Sticky, Massive, Jimmy Cooks,â€ says one commenter. Others claimed that the albumâ€™s success is more of a reflection of Drake himself. â€œBro can release anything and it goes platinum,â€ reads one of the top comments on the post.
Yet Another Milestone For Drake
Drake and 21 Savage are currently on a massive North American tour. The â€œItâ€™s All A Blurâ€ tour has seen the rappers performing career-spanning setlists full of fan-favorite tracks. Honestly, Nevermind songs like â€œJimmy Cooksâ€ and â€œMassiveâ€ make an appearance at nearly every single show. Recently, the tour just got another opening performer. It was announced over the weekend that Sexyy Red would be joining the â€œItâ€™s All A Blurâ€ tour for all of the remaining dates.
The tour has also been a hotbed for attracting other celebs. Fans took notice when Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Bad Bunny, and Tristan Thompson all enjoyed a recent LA concert together. During the show, Drake even announced that there will be a Bad Bunny collab on his upcoming new album. What do you think of Honestly, Nevermind going platinum just a year after its release?
