In less than two months, Logic’s Everybody has surpassed the 500,000 sales marker and is now certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America.
The critically-acclaimed album joins Bobby Tarantino’s past two full-length LPs, The Incredible True Story and Under Pressure, with this distinction. Each has been certified gold.

Everybody has already spawned two gold singles, including the title track and “1-800-273-8255.” The latter smash, which features Alessia Cara and Khalid, also received a moving cinematic video this month.
Coming up next, the “Flexicution” MC will be performing the aforementioned suicide awareness track at the MTV Video Music Awards with a little help from Khalid. Plus, he’s wrapping up “Everybody’s Tour” in Toronto on Aug. 26.
Released in May, Everybody explored Logic’s biracial heritage and more while becoming his first No. 1 on the Billboard 200. “I wanted to tell the stories of other people who may not have the voice I do,” said the 27-year-old. “I felt the necessity to discuss these things, because I am proud to be me, I am proud of where I come from, and at the same time, it’s also bigger than me.”
