Kendrick Lamar's 'DAMN' goes double-platinum

It's a first for the artist, and for the year of 2017.

Nearly three months after Kendrick Lamar's DAMN. album went platinum, the lyricist has another reason to celebrate the LP.

The project just doubled its success, according to the RIAA.

Taking to Instagram to make the announcement, Kendrick posed with his double-platinum plaque and wrote:

"These murals forever belong to my fans. You've always taken my words above and beyond. Around the world and back again. With trust. I am forever grateful. 2x."

The achievement marks not just the first double-platinum project for K.Dot, but for 2017. He's the first and only artist to be certified as such so far this year.
