By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
J. Cole had big first week in opening sales for his latest studio album “2014 Forest Hills Drive,” selling over 370,000 copies in the first week, and now the rapper can celebrate nabbing his very first platinum album.
J. Cole can now update his discography with this stellar achievement. The Fayetteville native’s junior album 2014 Forest Hills Drive has hit platinum status.
The feature-less project dropped to fanfare in December, and has steadily climbed the charts and broke barriers every week. His previous compilations, Cole World: The Sideline Story and Born Sinner pushed 735,000 and 720,000 units respectively, but his recent musical effort boasts over 1,000,000 copies, which includes streaming tallies as well.
Congrats to J. Cole.
