Cole’s streak is familiar to all of us, as the “platinum with no features” mantra developed in 2016 when his 2014 Forest Hills Drive hit platinum status just two months after its release.
His debut album, Cole Word: The Sideline Story went platinum in under three months while Born Sinner hit a million units in a similar fashion.
