Looks like The Weeknd has reached quite the landmark as his “Trilogy” LP released in November 2012, has officially hit gold. More than 500 000 copies of the project have been shipped and with it being a 3 piece CD, each individual remastered mixtape featured in the package counts as a copy. Congrats to Abel and we hope to hear a new project from the singer this year.
UPDATE: The album has now reached platinum status but don’t forget being that it is has 3 discs that he only sold 333k copies. Still impressive for a majority of free music released before hand. Congrats to him and the XO camp.
