Just remember where I lived at, fifty thousand's going gold
Prior to May 1st, 2008, in order for a record to be certified Gold in Canada (where Drake comes from) it needed to sell 50,000 copies. (In America the requirement is 500,000 for Gold certification, due to it’s much larger population). As of May 1st 2008, the requirement for Gold Certification in Canada has been lowered to 40,000.
