J. Cole’s third studio album, 2014 Forest Hills Drive, has reached triple platinum status. The album went gold in 2015 a little over a month after it dropped in December 2014 with no features.
The 13-track album, which includes fan favourites like “Wet Dreamz,” “Fire Squad” and “No Role Modelz,” went platinum a year later in January 2016. Then, nine months later in October 2016, the album achieved double platinum status.
The awards may keep coming for Cole. After his song “Middle Child” became the first song of 2019 to go multiplatinum, BET revealed the nominees for the 2019 BET Awards in Los Angeles. Cole is up for at least four awards: Best Male Hip-Hop Artist, Coca-Cola Viewers’ Choice for his song “Middle Child” plus Best Collaboration and Video of the Year for his work on 21 Savage’s “a lot.”
