DJ Khaled and Drake's "For Free" Certified Platinum news

DJ Khaled continues his career hot streak with some great news about his recent single. On Thursday, Khaled took to Twitter to reveal that his Drake collaboration "For Free" has officially been certified Platinum by the RIAA. The song, which is a single from his recent album Major Key, burned up the Billboard Hot 100 chart all summer, peaking at No. 13 overall. 

With this distinction, "For Free" joins several other DJ Khaled songs in the platinum category. This includes "I'm So Hood," "I'm On One," "All I Do Is Win," "We Takin Over," and "I Wish You Would." It's his first platinum single from Major Key, Khaled's most successful album in years. The album also featured the single "I Got the Keys" with Jay Z and Future, and became Khaled's first ever No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 when it dropped back in the beginning of August. 

Khaled recently unleashed the video for "Nas Album Done," featuring none other than Nas himself. The two hit the Bahamas for the nine-minute short film, smoking cigars and giving out some of Khaled's famous life advice. Although the promotion cycle for Major Key is starting to wind down, it's clear that Khaled still has plenty of gas in the tank. He was recently announced as the host of the BET Hip-Hop Awards this year, and is no doubt going to continue to kill it for the rest of 2016.
