Even we have to admit this is kind of epic.
Just three weeks after release, the LP has sold a cool 743,000 units worldwide- giving it no choice but to stand as one of the year’s fast selling albums…at least on a global scale.
Moving 251,000 copies this week, the album only is only 257,000 units away from hitting the 1 million mark on the back of its lead single ‘Diamonds‘ alone.
Currently perched at #6 on the US’ Billboard 200, the Pop piece now holds Gold certifications in Poland, Austria and Denmark, for shipments of 10,000 units and features the Elijah Blake penned love song, ‘No Love Allowed’ and ‘Love Without Tragedy‘- co-written by The Dream and the nocalist herself.
