Future Surpasses Drake To Become Rapper W/ Most Platinum Albums In The 2010s

Exciting news for Future, the Atlanta artist has officially become the 2010s rapper with the most platinum albums.

According to reports, rapper Future, 38, recently surpassed his collaborator Drake, 35, by earning 55 new certifications from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Amongst his new certifications, Future, born Nayvadius Wilburn, received platinum plaques for his 2017 album “HNDRXX” and 2018 “Wrld On Drugs” collaboration with the late Juice WRLD on July 27.

With the addition of his new plaques, Future now has a total of eight albums to go platinum or higher, surpassing Drake’s seven. Reportedly, all nine of the Atlanta rapper’s studio albums have reached at least gold status.


Other projects awarded platinum status in Future’s music catalog include “Pluto,” “EVOL,” “Future,” and his “What a Time To Be Alive” collaboration with Drake. On July 27, his projects “High Off Life” and “DS2” went 2x-platinum and 3x-platinum.

Despite the pair not being too far from one another in platinum releases, Future could possibly extend his lead. His latest project, “I Never Liked You,” is nearing another platinum certification, per reports. The body of work remains one of the top-sellers on the Billboard 200.


Drake, full name Aubrey Graham, has a commendable platinum collection. It includes “Take Care” (6x-platinum), “Views” (6x-platinum), “Scorpion” (5x-platinum), “Nothing Was the Same” (4x-platinum), “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late” (2x-platinum), “Thank Me Later” (platinum), and the previously mentioned collaborative mixtape “What a Time To Be Alive.”


Although Drake was dethroned by his “Life Is Good” collaborator, his 2021 project “Certified Lover Boy” technically surpassed one million sales in the U.S. last September. The project has yet to receive a certification from the RIAA.

Congratulations to Future! What are your thoughts on this? Let us know below!
