Kanye West’s ‘Fantasy’ Certified Platinum

Kanye West

It’s taken nearly eight weeks, but Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy has hit a new milestone, according to the RIAA.

The Chicago rapper’s latest album has been honored with platinum certification, indicating that the LP has shipped a million units since its release in the U.S. in late November. This marks ‘Ye’s fifth consecutive album to hit the milli mark, following The College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation, and 808s & Heartbreak.

“THANK YOU EVERYBODY FOR MAKING MY BEAUTIFUL DARK TWISTED FANTASY OFFICIALLY PLATINUM!!!” tweeted an elated Kanye.

Let’s have a toast to Yeezy.

    Certification is based on units shipped and whether the label wants to pay for the certification(the process of verifying the shipping of 1 million cost money). I assume both nicki and kanye shipped 1 million units weeks ago but with nicki being a new artist its a good idea to get the certification done quickly to further promote the album. Establish artist are not so quick to certify their album. For instance eminem has not bother to have recovery certified even though it has sold over 3 million units.

    Don’t know how Nicki went platinum first. According to NielsenSoundscan ‘Ye has sold more.
    But according to NielsenSoundscan neither have sold 1 million yet.

    All i know is the RIAA calculates differently. I think they base it on shipments, not sales.
