Drake's upcoming album already expected to go gold upon release

Drake recently announced that he will be releasing his latest album, Scorpion this upcoming June.  Accoridng to Chartdata, Drake is already slated to receive a plaque for the project.

As a result of the new streaming rules, and what now counts as sales, Drake's album will be eligible to go gold as a result of "God's Plan" and "Nice for What." Drake's team is taking full advantage of the same tactic that allowed Cardi B's album to reach gold status so quickly.
